Savisaar: U.S. election result proof that nothing can be done without the people ({{commentsTotal}})


All a candidate needed was the love of the people, and anything was possible, former Center Party chairman Edgar Savisaar commented the result of the U.S. election on Wednesday.

Savisaar wrote on social media that Trump had won despite the fact that his own party had been against him. “Even President Bush announced that he didn’t vote for Trump. At times it seemed everyone was against him. Just like he was some kind of pariah.”

“But the people were with him, and the people voted and made him the winner. Again we see the fact confirmed that you don’t need anything more than the love of the people, and everything can be done and anything is possible,” Savisaar wrote.

“The white working man was who the Democrats abandoned, and who Trump picked up. The Democrats lost themselves in the maze of different minorities,” Savisaar opined.

“And just think how much money and resources were on Clinton’s side! Billionaires George Soros and Michael Bloomberg were behind her. Conclusion: A lot of money isn’t always enough. You can’t buy elections, you can’t win elections if the people aren’t on your side,” Savisaar concluded.
