At the start of the United States election when it was clear that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump had secured their parties’ nomination. It was clear from the beginning that many Nigerians both at home and Diaspora had favoured a Clinton win. Nigerians have always leaned toward Democratic Party. They rooted for Clinton both on the streets and on social media. This was also the case in 2008 when Nigerians supported Barrack Obama for as the first African American President. It was thus a disappointment for many when Donald Trump was announced as the 45th president of the United States of America on Tuesday November 9, 2016. Now that Trump has won, what are the implications for Nigerians especially those in the US? Clinton to them represents continuity while Trump is dramatic change.
Here are 6 ways Trump’s presidency will affect Nigerians abroad.
1. They believe US will turn to a racial country
2. Stricter immigration policies
3. His opposition of Muslims
4. No Gay marriage
5. Fear of Deportation
6. He believes America First (Favouritism)
