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:

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.
