As of Monday, Dec. 20th, 2016, Donald Trump has received the final and formal victory by the Electoral College who consisted of electors from all the states, despite the thousands who have been protesting this matter.

The efforts that had surfaced by thousands of anti-Trump activists, which included renowned figures from celebrity statuses among others as well, served to practically nothing.

The activists had attempted in convincing the electors to prevent Donald Trump from receiving the 270 mandatory votes from electors that he needed in order to proceed as the next US president.

Hundreds of anti-Trump protestors chanted outside the capitol of Pennsylvania situated in Harrisburg with statements such as “No, Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA!”

The Different Views

An elector from Hawaii allegedly cast a vote for Bernie Sanders, whilst electors in states such as Delaware and Vermont had supported and voted for Hillary Clinton.

Meanwhile in other states such as Mississippi, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Texas, Donald Trump earned a full-fledged victory by the electors, although it has been stated that at least two republicans from Texas had cast off their votes for Trump.

Overall, Donald Trump had officially received a tally of 304 electoral votes, whilst Hillary Clinton gained 227.

The Protesters Weren’t Loud Enough

Republican electors stated that they have been bombarded with thousands of emails and calls recently in an attempt to reject Trump from being voted as the official and final US president.

An elector from North Carolina, Lee Green, remarked on the thousands of complaints and worries by saying it was saddening to see all these people completely gullible from all the ‘propaganda’ they have been shown, and that they firmly believe Trump is an all out evil figure.

On the other hand, a few other electors who did not vote for Trump have been referred to as ‘faithless.’ One such elector from Texas, Christopher Suprun, stated that he has received several death threats that aimed at both him and his family, adding that this was a result of him simply following what his conscience was.
