Kindle Free Pick of the Week: Why Trump Won

A quick read.

On November 8, Donald Trump shocked the world by winning the United States Presidential Election. Almost every poll had him trailing Hillary Clinton and most media thought his defeat was a foregone conclusion.

However, he will become the next President of the United States with a decisive victory in the Electoral College, remarkably upsetting Clinton in most of the swing states, especially those located in the Rust Belt.

While most media have focused in Trump's inflammatory rhetoric and divisive remarks, there were much deeper reasons why the country chose him as it's new leader which range from the extremely complicated situation of an entire layer of the American society to the Democratic Party blunders during the campaign, to the performance of the media themselves. All of this on an environment of class and racial tension which the United States have slowly developed in recent years.
