Germany : Trumps triumph sends a strong message.

"The outcome of these elections is testimony to just how many Americans have turned away from the establishment in disappointment. What Donald Trump has to do now is reunite diverging social currents. This will be no walk in the park. Until Trump's plan to govern emerges, we should brace for a longer period of uncertainty. I am expecting Trump to opt for an expansive fiscal policy designed to provide economic stimulus, all the while leaning towards a protectionist trade policy, with the associated negative consequences affecting the entire global economy.

Although the President-elect is likely to put a stop to TTIP, we can only hope that sooner or later, Trump will attempt to strengthen integration between EU and U.S. markets.

However, it is imperative that Trump reawakens the American dream and helps his country become, once again, the land of opportunity. To make this a reality, he would do well to modernize infrastructure, narrow the widening prosperity gap, take steps to promote social equality and give all Americans fair access to education.

If Trump goes down this road, he could succeed in bridging the divide brought about by this election campaign, unprecedented in its brutality.

It would also be right to bring disappointed Americans who feel they've been left behind back into the mainstream, reuniting them with their country and its fundamental values. The fact that Trump remains a bit of a mystery in terms of foreign policy only serves to increase uncertainty."
