Billionaire-turned-politician Donald Trump has been elected the 45th President of the United States. The Republican party candidate secured the support of 276 of the 538 members of the electoral college, beating Democratic party rival Hillary Clinton. President-elect Trump will formally take charge of the Oval Office on January 20, 2017, dubbed as the 'Inauguration Day'.
Initially, the Indian citizens who were indeed watching the election with incredulity, did not have very strong opinions about any of the candidates. This is mainly because this year’s campaign was fought more on scandals than on policies which include historical load and the diaspora. But if one has followed the campaigns closely, it can be said that the outcome of this election will affect trade ties between America and other countries. But if it will affect India, is debatable, as Indian economy is already doing very well, along with the fact that our foreign policies regarding each other are so strong that leaders cannot change that effectively for a long time.
At BA, We congratulate the newly elected American President Donald Trump and we hope that the Ties between India and US will be strengthened and we expect to have camaraderie among our leaders and The people in general.
