This year’s election has been filled with tears of anger, fear and even joy. With elections officially over and Donald Trump being the chosen president-elect, the STAR caught up with students to hear their thoughts on the results. Students that we spoke to were asked: What are your thoughts on, or reaction to, the results of this election?
“Being from LA I believe it was an eye opener and made me feel like I live in a bubble, due to the fact most of the state was red, and to see how people are taking it is quite alarming. I think either [Trump] tries to put Hillary in prison and tries to deport people, or he realizes if he tries to carry out those notions he maight be impeached.” -Jeremy Kichaven, third year
“I am not a very opinionated person and I have sort of accepted the fact that he is our new President. I think social media has made the election a lot worse. Individuals are voicing their opinions but are saying it in a very harsh way. I think people need to be more open minded about him being President.” -Shelby Olivas, third year
“I am completely shocked about the results of the election. I began to think the rest of the world was caught in Trump’s bubble. But then I became aware that I am in Bay Area’s bubble of love, acceptance and tolerance.” -Ciara Donlon, third year
“It doesn’t feel quite real yet and feels more like an insult. Being Latino this affects myself, my family and a whole nation, because of his views of Latinos... I don’t think Clinton would have been a better candidate either, and that is why I did not vote.” -Francisco Lopez, third year
