Following the historic and arguably shocking US presidential victory of businessman Donald Trump last night, we asked key players in the local political scene what they think...
Chairman of Aylesbury and Buckingham UKIP Branch, Phil Yerby said: “First of all - what an amazing victory it’s been. It’s been a tempestuous campaign and he’s shown a lot of resilience to get through it.
“From what i’ve read about his plans domestically, I have to say I’m impressed. His positions on jobs, taxation, and the economy are all laudable.
“It looks as though he will wield immense power with control of the senate and the house of representatives, and the supreme court, so he should be in a fabulous position to make great changes.
“It’s a huge kick for the establishment. There are question marks over his foreign policy, he needs to be conciliatory on the world stage, just like he showed in his concession speech. I believe he will cut through the bureaucracy of government, a good positive move for the USA. It’s an interesting and exciting time for the USA.”
