America must make new presidency work

Published 15/11/2016

Like many, I voted for Hillary Clinton just to wake up in an alternate universe where Donald Trump is president. Now what do we do? Since we are stuck with Mr Trump and he has no experience, we are in trouble.

But putting aside the sheer shock, we have to come together to keep civilisation from crashing.

I would like to see - for example - experienced Democrats, maybe even a Clinton, reach out to Mr Trump and become part of his cabinet. Mr Trump isn't really a Republican and I understand most of what he said was just to get elected.

But now it is time to govern and we can't afford to be dysfunctional.

We have to try to find opportunity in tragedy and bring some sort of sanity back into the process.
