Congratulations to my friend, President-elect Donald Trump. He is a cat with nine lives. Many times I thought he was finished, yet he tapped into the core sentiment of the American people and won.
Also, my respect for Hillary Clinton has gone up. She is a tough competitor. My poor dad lost his election for Lt. Governor of the State of Hawaii and that defeat crushed him and our family.
