Trump got elected because he convinced enough white, often racist, down on their luck voters that everyone else is to blame for all of their problems. Those white, often racist, down on their luck voters see America changing from them ruling everything to a melting pot where the color of their skin no longer guarantees them them a leg up.
Instead of learning to adapt they picked someone who promised them that he will take them back to the days when "America was great" - aka the glory days when whites ruled everything regardless of their qualifications. The sad thing for them is that they will soon find out that he alone won't be able to fix all of their problems.
And writing off the 3,000,000 more people who voted for Clinton over Trump is unfortunate. We have become a laughing stock to the rest of the world since we love to tell everyone else how to run their countries but then ignore the will of the people in our own in order to prop up an arcane system that was created to perpetuate slavery and white supremacy.
I'd also prefer to lose every single election going forward if it means we have to sink to the level that Donald Trump did. If it takes white nationalism, sexism, and xenophobia to win a Presidential election in America then I'd rather lose.
Back to healthcare please. We have more than enough threads about Trump's election.
