Donald Trump has only four words to say on former Republican US President George W Bush’s decision not to vote for him: I think it is sad! In a departure from tradition, neither George W Bush, president from 2001 to 2009, nor his father, former Republican President George HW Bush, endorsed the Republican nominee for president, Donald Trump. According to a spokesman for Bush and his wife, Laura, did not cast a vote for US president. “They voted ‘None of the Above’ for president,” Freddy Ford said in an email about the couple, who now live in Dallas.
Meanwhile, projections indicate that Donald Trump has taken the lead with three thumping wins in Indiana, Kentucky and West Virginia. Democrat Hillary Clinton has bagged Vermont, reported CNN. Voting is still underway in some areas of the US, and all eyes are on America to deliver a landmark verdict. Hillary or Trump will preside over an improving economy that is nevertheless leaving many behind and a military battling new terror threats. Financial markets, betting exchanges and online trading platforms largely predicted a Clinton win, although Trump’s team says he can pull off an upset victory like the June “Brexit” vote to pull Britain out of the European Union. Interestingly, global gurus Marc Faber and Jim Rogers feel that Trump stands a decent chance of making it to the White House.
A win for Trump could shake some of the basic building blocks of American foreign policy, such as the NATO alliance and free trade, and reverse some of Obama’s domestic achievements such as his 2010 healthcare law. Into the equation have been thrown a lot of animals and fish to try and predict the winner. While some of these creatures have picked Hillary Clinton (Tiger), Trump gets more backing by others (fish, monkey and polar bear).
