We asked for your reaction to Donald Trump being elected

WARNING: No positivity here


When we walked around campus today, we were greeted by heated conversations, disappointment and just shock. None of us could have predicted (like the polls) that the election would turn out the way it did, and quite frankly, it’s a mistake.

With the 45th President being announced as Donald J. Trump, 9th November 2016 will be a day in the history textbooks as one we wish to forget. Here’s how KCL students around all campuses reacted.

WARNING: No positivity here.
