    Basically, and for whatever reason, and there could be thousands, the republicans “trumped” the 2016 election for President of the United States. It is now their turn to show their stuff, just as the democrats have done for the last eight years.

    As with any race, someone has to win, someone has to lose. The outcome is not pleasant to all, its not suppose to be. More shall be reveal, and we will adjust accordingly.

    Protest will alleviate some of the sting. Its a hard pill to swollow, and no one want to take a bitter pill, but had the results been different, the conversation would probably be along the same venue, with the points probably being the same, only from a different perspective.
