Mr. Andrew Burke, History Teacher

“I am extremely disappointed that roughly one-quarter of the eligible voters rewarded a man who built his campaign on fear and anger. I am heartbroken that I had to explain to my daughter how people could overlook his treatment and attitude towards her gender. I am sad that a man who has shown little understanding regarding foreign policy and whose statements have undermined our allies security is the commander-in-chief. I am disappointed that a man who denies the science behind climate change is in charge of the EPA. I could go on and on. So how am I feeling? I am extremely disappointed and sad.”

“My feelings are a little bit of shock and honestly a little bit of fear. There was one candidate who really jeopardized some of the rights and freedoms that particular groups within our country are going to have, and for me prioritizing that above everything else is kind of why I’m a little bit shocked our country would go that route. I didn’t like how either one of them ran their campaigns. Speaking particularly to that I think that one of the things the Clinton campaign will look back on is they focused so much on how people were going to interpret the email scandal. so they didn’t do a lot of talking about that other than saying, ‘look at what Trump said.’”

“I am very happy with the result. I felt that Trump was going to win from the beginning. I was confident in him and never thought negatively about his chances. Hillary scared me a bit in the beginning but it all worked out in the end in Trump’s favor. I had hope in Trump because I am a Republican and he was our nominee, but mostly I’m just a big fan of Donald Trump and his policies. Make America great again!”
