THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: THE ELECTION RESULTS!
Many of you Latinopians I am sure are disgusted with the results of the 2016 Presidential Elections. As we work through the shock of realizing that our fellow Americans saw fit to elect a racist and misogynist to the Presidency,Latinopia is posting reactions by some of our esteemed colleague bloggers. Check the blogs by Sal Baldenehro, Don Felipe De Ortego and Jose Gugo Umpierre below. Dr. Alvaro Huerta will weigh in later this week.
Jose “Gugo” Umpierre, weighs in not just on Trump victory but also on the election of the new Governor of Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rosselló , and how this may impact the debt crisis in Puerto Rico. One thing for sure, he reminds us, the Trump victory is not good for Puerto Rico and its people!
Sal Baldenegro opines from the vantage point of the Democratic National Convention. Were they responsible for Hillary’s defeat? In what ways was Hillary’s defeat the end of a long process of DNC failures?
Don Felipe de Ortego places the Trump victory and Hillary defeat in the contact of all the year’s worth of machinations by both sides. While comparing Trump to Andrew Jackson, the most polarizing President of all time, he reminds that there is work to be done: Manos a la obra!
