Many Americans have refused to accept Donald Trump as their future President, because of his repeated hate speeches against different sections of society and rude behaviour.

The U.S. President-elect Donald Trump took to Twitter instantly to retort that President Obama cannot defeat him in the presidential race if it happened.

Trump was responding to an assertion that Obama made Monday when he said he would have won against the businessman-turned-politician for a third four-year term as President. But the U.S. Constitution does not allow for more than two presidential terms.

“NO WAY!” Trump used capital letters in his tweet to emphasize his rejection to Obama’s claims.

He blamed Obama for the joblessness in the U.S., rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), and Affordable Care Act or ObamaCare enacted by President Obama in 2010.

Trump also added that the world was gloomy before he won and there was no hope. “Now the market is up nearly 10% and Christmas spending is over a trillion dollars!” he said.

Meanwhile, Brian Fallon – a spokesman for Hillary Clinton – endorsed Obama’s claims by tweeting that Obama would have beaten Trump in the election. He also suggested that despite his win, Trump is a weak man and Democrats must join hands to oppose him.

Opposition to Trump

Although Trump has received majority of the 538 state-by-state electoral votes to win the presidency, his rival Clinton won 48.2% of the popular vote compared with 46.1% for Trump.

In other words, Clinton got nearly 3 million more votes than what Trump got in the November election. But the U.S. election system declared Trump as the winner.

In order to challenge the election system, former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, has approached the U.S. Department of Justice through her attorney demanding a probe in the election process.

Stein’s attorney has written a letter to the Attorney General Loretta Lynch, asking for an investigation into the integrity of the U.S. election system generally, and the voting machines specifically.

Besides the hacking of Democratic Party’s emails, the Stein campaign alleges that the touchscreen voting machines were also hacked and voters’ databases were stolen to facilitate Trump’s win.

Plus, many Americans have refused to accept Trump as their future President, because of his repeated hate speeches against different sections of society and rude behaviour.

Although Trump has managed to attract many Americans with his sensational rhetoric, most believe he is not fit to become the President because of his uncivil language and unstable thoughts.

His speeches and tweets were full of vulgar words such as “sleaze,” “stupid,” “goofy,” “crooked,” “liar,” “low life,” “bimbo,” and so on.

People are now getting ready to protest and disrupt the Inauguration Day ceremony on January 20, 2017 when Trump is scheduled to begin his four-year term as President.

A leading filmmaker Michael Moore, for example, believes that Americans can still overturn the outcome of the U.S. presidential election that Trump won by defeating his rival Hillary Clinton.

Moore also dismissed the election of Trump by the Electoral College electors saying that the process has benefited the candidate who spewed racism and hate.

The Presidential Inaugural Committee, however, is making all preparations to ensure a smooth ceremony. It has created a dedicated website for the inauguration.

The site states that the country is “once again establishing a government of, by and for the people, as we, the people, Make America Great Again!”
