Hollywood Reacts to Donald Trump Winning the Presidency

Donald Trump will be the 45th president of the United States.

The Republican Party retained the House and maintained control of the Senate as well.

On Twitter, Donald called his win “beautiful and important.” President Barack Obama has invited him to the White House Thursday to discuss his next steps. “Ensuring a smooth transition of power is one of the top priorities the President identified at the beginning of the year and a meeting with the President-elect is the next step,” the White House said. Barack will make a statement later on Wednesday regarding the election results. He will also discuss “what steps we can take as a country to come together after this hard-fought election season.”

Donald delivered his victory speech in the wee hours of the morning Wednesday, thanking his wife, Melania Trump, and his five children. “I love you and I thank you, and especially for putting up with all of those hours. This was tough. This was tough. This political stuff is nasty and it is tough,” he said. “I want to thank my family very much. Really fantastic. Thank you all.”

Hillary Clinton will address the nation Wednesday. “I’ve just received a call from Secretary Clinton. She congratulated us. It’s about us, on our victory, and I congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard-fought campaign,” Donald told his supporters at the New York Hilton. “I mean, she fought very hard. Hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time, and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country.”

Donald also promised to “be president for all of Americans,” saying, “This is so important to me. For those who have chosen not to support me in the past, of which there were a few people, I’m reaching out to you for your guidance and your help so that we can work together and unify our great country. As I’ve said from the beginning, ours was not a campaign, but rather an incredible and great movement, made up of millions of hard-working men and women who love their country and want a better, brighter future for themselves and for their family.”

After Donald’s victory, many celebrities took to Twitter to share their reactions:

Choosing to believe Trump voters were sick of the establishment (a feeling we all share to some degree) and valued change above all else…

Hillary voters: Trump voters aren’t all racist misogynistic bullies at heart… they wanted change, and didn’t think Hillary was capable.

America didn’t find Trump’s flaws fatal for a prez, but can we now all at least admit they’re flaws and work together to keep him in check?

Trump voters: In his victory, can we all take a breath and acknowledge the racism, misogyny & bullying we all find unacceptable?

Feeling a lot of pain tonight… trying to make sense of it. I feel the anger too… trying to see a way out of it. Maybe it’s too soon…

But it’s going to have to happen eventually. And it will. I have to believe that.

This is an embarrassing night for America. We’ve let a hatemonger lead our great nation. We’ve let a bully set our course. I’m devastated.

Congratulations @realDonaldTrump for your stunning victory over your opponent! Looking forward to making AMERICA great again!

My grandparents were immigrants who fled hitler. I’m glad they didn’t live to see the country they so loved embrace this platform of hate.

Goodnight, America. There are no more words. Just goodnight.

I still believe in us. Despite this evident, great divide. It’s time to come together. Hear each other. Not give up, cry, or gloat. Unite.

Gather your strength. Now we must turn our tears to sweat, do battle with hate, and turn this chaos into progress. The great work begins.

I do not recognize this world we live in. And I do not accept it. I do not. Nope. And nope.

Tradition over truth, arrogance over info, Fame over decency, white male power over, everything. Being horrible is a culture.

Be tired. Be mad. Be honest & concerned. But be not afraid. Rest up. Be safe. Come together. Construct. Know your surroundings. Be creative.

We must reach out to our friends in the immigrant, LGBT, people of color, & female communities. Promise you’ll fight for them. And do.

No matter how dark the times we must face reality & quietly work for the common good & collective evolution with love and compassion.

No one can stop you from being a loving, kind, generous person. No matter who wins we will be okay and find our way back to humanity.

As a female, since Trump started running for office, I’ve noticed an increase of sexuality assaulting&degrading tweets towards me wonder why

I will not kneel. I will continue to fight for equality. I will spread love. I will be a warrior of education & kindness. I will NOT kneel.

Great faith in God works. Mr @realDonaldTrump I’m proud to call you President of the United States of America. And First Lady @MELANIATRUMP

Hold your loved ones close tonight. Let ’em feel it. Get some sleep. Back at it tomorrow. Love has a longer wick than hate & fear.

The billionaire Republican businessman is close to winning the race and world markets are crashing.
He’s all yours, America.
He’s all yours

1- I think the thing to focus on now is our families. To love those that were put in our lives to care for. Also our respective health,

2- work and faith. The American political system is broken. Walk away from it for a while. As Coriolanus says, “There is a world elsewhere.”

Really, people? ANYONE can be President? ANYONE? ANY-ONE?

My son has special needs… how do I explain to him that the man who mocked a disabled reporter is now running our country

Some didn’t like Bush. Some didn’t like Obama. But this is different. Forget dislike. Many are genuinely fearful now. This is new.

A climate-denying, anti-equality, anti-reproductive rights establishment has been installed, so yes, we’re allowed our online meltdowns.

I’m taking tonight to grieve for minorities, women, immigrants, muslims & the LGBTQ community but tomorrow I’m waking up ready to fight.

We all need to give President-Elect Trump a chance. Support the good. Lobby against what we disagree on. No one is bigger than us all

One Nation. Under God. Indivisible. With Liberty and Justice for All.

I feel like America just sent in our tuition check for Trump University.

The positive element from all this is that we can no longer pretend that we are free of racism & sexism. The question is, what do we do now?

Do not sit still. Do not weep. MOVE. We are not a nation that will let HATE lead us.

America just elected a man who said to “grab em by the pussy” over the first female president. This is really sad.

You’re the 9/11 of presidents, @realDonaldTrump. You broke America, you living joke.

Dear President-elect Trump, please seize this historic moment and make America a nation for us all.

I truly hope that people keep their eyes open as we, the greatest democracy on the planet, crumbles. Maybe next time they’ll choose better.

You know what we do now? We finish building what we started and we FIGHT BACK! Lift your heads up brothers and sisters.

This is more than just populism- it’s racism. Confederate flags will be flying

And no, I’m not saying everyone who voted for Trump is a racist and a misogynist. But this doesn’t negate my earlier remark

America somos mejor que esto. Seguiremos hechando para delante y venceremos como pueblo! Un presidente no define el pueblo!

Hillary has not been seen since leaving her polling station in Chappaqua, New York.
