Welcome back to the world, USA! Hope you have a peaceful transition, rosecarmel.

I wouldn't want to be in Trump's household right now. He'll be hell to live with.

Wheniwasyourage Sat 07-Nov-20 16:40:41

Don't imagine he was all sweetness and light before, rockgran!

biba70 Sat 07-Nov-20 16:41:05

yep, he brought tears to my eyes.

Let's all pray, each in our own way, that violence will not break out on the streets. Many families, communities, have been so divided. He has won, but the divisions are still there and very very deep.

Thank goodness! I'm no particular fan of Biden but at least he's normal!

grannyqueenie Sat 07-Nov-20 16:43:11

Just heard a USA commentator saying they wouldn’t want to be the political advisor who has to talk to Trump about it all!!

grannyqueenie Sat 07-Nov-20 16:44:03

Yes indeed, biba, they are

Big relief. Don't know if we could stand another 4 years of Trump.

I wonder how long Melanie will remain with DT 🧐. I think she has been rather ladylike in difficult circumstances.

I’m so happy for my American friends, sounds like Trump has crawled away to one of his golf courses to lick his wounds or plan his strategy to turn it around 🀣🀣

Anniebach Sat 07-Nov-20 16:46:58

I pray he will be safe

merlotgran Sat 07-Nov-20 16:48:46

Apparently Trump has gone to play golf.

Quick! Somebody change the locks!

Smileless2012 Sat 07-Nov-20 16:51:42

What a relief, now we have to hope and pray there's no trouble.

Kalu Sat 07-Nov-20 16:52:41

I have just heard! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘. Excellent result.

Whitewavemark2 Sat 07-Nov-20 16:53:25

I wonder if Trump will turn up at the inauguration?

Riverwalk Sat 07-Nov-20 16:54:39

I can't believe the US had to suffer this man for the past 4 years - democracy is such a strange thing!

Biden is mainstream and boring; Trump could have been a game-changer but he just didn't have the intelligence or commitment to a nation to even make an effort to rise to the office.

Grannynannywanny Sat 07-Nov-20 16:57:12


I wonder if Trump will turn up at the inauguration?

Would it be very unkind of me to hope he’ll be in prison by then?

Shrub Sat 07-Nov-20 16:57:37

The best thing that has happened this year!πŸŽ‡
