Like most people who were following the presidential election, I was shocked that Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton.
I couldn’t believe what I was seeing as I watched The New York Times “Live Presidential Forecast.” Here’s how much the “chance of winning presidency” shifted last night from about 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. (I took this screenshot at 10:27 p.m. CT.)
I’m thrilled Clinton lost, and I’m sad Trump won. (I could not vote for either candidate with a clear conscience.)
Now what? I’m still processing this upset. These four articles are the most helpful I read this morning:
- David French, “May God Bless President Trump”
- Denny Burk, “Some late-night thoughts about the most stunning election of my lifetime”
- Collin Hansen, “Two Concerns for the Religious Right Under President Trump”
- Russell Moore, “President Trump: Now What for the Church?”
Update: Here are some other thoughtful articles:
- Jason DeRouchie, “Five Ways to Help Our Kids After the Election”
- David French, “The Great Progressive Repudiation: Voters might like President Obama, but they have soundly rejected his agenda”
- Jared Wilson, “The Biggest Losers: A 2016 Election Reflection”
- Al Mohler, Transcript of “The Briefing,” 11/9/2016.
- Dan McLaughlin, “Where Does Never Trump Go in a Trump Presidency?”
- David French, “What Comes Next for Never Trump”
- Ben Sasse, “Everyone’s duty is to hope for Trump, work for America”
Update on January 20, 2017: John Piper explains how to live under an unqualified president.
