Americans are not the only ones who are expressing concerns about Donald J. Trump's presidency. Koreans, who are experiencing a political chaos of their own, are also deeply concerned about the president-elect who will be leading the U.S. starting next year. 


Trump has spoken several times about South Korea, and how he believes that the U.S. "practically gets nothing" while stationing its troops there. Many South Koreans are worried that Trump will change the North Korean policy and military landscape in the Korean peninsula. 


Major broadcasting and media outlets have been closely reporting on the presidential election. After announcing the results, many netizens are expressing their opinions on the matter online. Here is an article that reports on the Americans who are refusing to accept the result of the election: 


SEE ALSO: Netizens condemn Donald Trump after he criticizes Korea for its reliance on the U.S

 





Responding to the article, people commented: 




"Leave it be. Trump supporters will be so embarrassed that they won't be able to lift their heads up in 4 years. If you want to see what Trump supporters might look like in 4 years, come to Korea (referring to the Park supporters in the recent scandal)."





"I hear the poor, white population supported Trump. They are confused. Trump was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, so do you think he can understand poor people and at least have any interest in them? It's a foolish decision, choosing Trump." 





"Cannot believe a racist, sexist, and rich old man became the president of the world..." 



In another article, a breakdown of the Trump supporter demographics gained a lot of attention: 






Koreans commented: 




"Poor, ignorant people voted for a millionaire lolololol Americans are the same as us" 


"He is someone who was born with excessive riches since birth and doesn't know a thing about poverty and difficulties, and those who are poor and uneducated are voting for him lololol" 



Another article focused on the anger against government and the establishment that might have led to Trump's victory: 







Koreans responded: 





"Even if Americans were blinded by self-interest, it is unbelievable that they elected a sexist, racist man. Their problem is that there are too many uneducated people..."




"It worked because an ignorant man was agitating the ignorant, white, uneducated masses. And the old people added to it. It's exactly the same as Brexit." 


"Trump, Abe, Xi Jinping, Park Geun Hye, Putin, and Duterte make a fantastic axis of evil"


What are your thoughts on Trump as the U.S. president, and what do you think about Koreans concerns?

    After all the lies that Trump spread about the President, it looks like he really is going to have to deal with a Muslim Blackman. Ain't Karma a bitch? (snickers) Enjoy Mr. Trump.

    Seems a bit of a WASTE of energy for 'TRUMP/USA HATERS' to 'rant on' endlessly on a K-pop website. NOBODY much is listening. And I consider AKP to be an AWFUL website to discuss anything POLITICAL (or RELIGIOUS) in nature. And posting messages on AKP has little to NO IMPACT on the upcoming 2020 USA Presidential Election. But I *support* that AKP did write this ARTICLE here. It allows for a *proper* location for MEANINGLESS RANTING from someone say living in EAST TIMOR (nation) who knows EXACTLY what TRUMP/USA should be doing about EVERYTHING! ... ;-)

    Hypocrites to the core. When Koreans and their government (or foreigners from any other country) allow people from anywhere on the planet to just enter South Korea at will - to work there, live there, collect social benefits, and vote... without ever having to go through a background check, apply for a visa, obtain working papers, residency cards, or to even inform South Korean authorities they are in the country at all - then you fucks will have the moral authority to criticize.

    I didn't vote for either of the two major party candidates, but I believe that the US election system worked exactly as it was supposed to. It was a fair election that Mr. Trump won. And as it was in '08 with President-Elect Obama I also believe we should give President-Elect Trump the benefit of the doubt and support and pray for him to lead the US in the right direction - much as President Obama and Mrs. Clinton have both eloquently stated over the past couple days. The hyperbole from those against Trump in the US and abroad should be tempered until we actual see how the future President Trump will govern.

    This is for all the Americans reading this and for all others who have American friends. Our constitution provides a safeguard agaisnt the very thing that's happening. Public opinion putting someone who is uniquely unqualified to oversee this country into the White House. The Electoral College does not vote until December. IF we can get just 20 out of 166 of those votes pledged to Trump to NOT vote and only 2 of those to vote someone (anyone) else, the House will then vote on who will be president. The link to the details are in the replies.

    Best of luck with this - seems like a desperate pipe dream to me. The probability of a contingent election is extremely remote and even if you could get enough faithless electors to swing the Electoral College vote the majority of state delegations are controlled by Republicans and I can't see them voting against their party's candidate.

    I can. They hate Trump. They've been trying to get rid of him since the RNC. The electors will more than likely vote for a Republican and I see the house jumping at that. But yes, It is a stretch because it's never been done before. But it IS Constitutional and the Electoral College was created by the founding fathers for just this situation.

    It also has the charm of being infinitely better than what's waiting if it doesn't work.

    Of course it's constitutional, but their hasn't been a contingent election in almost 200 years. Not to mention 26 states bind their electors to their pledged candidate, which makes faithless electors very rare - I can only think of a few instances in the past 50 years and it was never more than 1 or 2 electors. Even though I didn't vote for him, you're very mistaken about the dislike the Republicans have for Mr. Trump currently. Surprisingly, many are crediting him for bringing out voters, which helped mitigate any losses the Republicans might have had in the House and Senate, so I don't see them turning on him now as it would fracture the party even more than it already is. One last point, the Electoral College was designed in-part to prevent a tyrant from taking the Presidency, but not generally in the way you're suggesting with faithless electors. One of the main intents, among others, was to prevent a simple majority from imposing it's own interests on a minority (See Tyranny of the Majority).
