Musicians and celebrities have been reacting over Twitter, with some hilarious effects. But what is your reaction? Did the right candidate win? Let us know what you think in the comments and poll below.

    Trump should think before posting things on the internet. Everyone outside of the US that I've heard weigh in on this election thought Romney as president was the worst possible outcome for this election.

    Is this site just for US readers? If so, fine. If not, are you going to cover every countries elections. Is this going to turn into a political website? Again, I have no problem with that, but I'd like to know. Thanks

    The majority of readers are based in the US, and several notable figures from the music world reacted to the election. Feedback is welcome.

    "The world is laughing at us" I really don't think the world cares.

    Donald Trump is right about one thing. The world is laughing at America. We're just laughing because when every other country in the world was polled, the only one that would actually have voted Romney in was China... and you almost did too America.

    I love the way UG tries to make it relevant by throwing in a picture of Dave Grohl.

    Geez, Trump really does have his head up his bottom. The world either doesn't care or was rooting for Obama. I don't want to say that Obama is the perfect candidate but I'd go with him any time as well. Oh yeah, the rest of the world was indeed laughing, but they were laughing at Romney.

    I'd listen to Trump. He's a guy with money who knows how business works. People like him are the ones who really create jobs, despite what Obama or Romney thinks of themselves. You don't have to agree with Trump, but you can't argue his business success. I know quite a few people who own businesses who said they aren't hiring anyone until Obama is out of office. Well, its a lame principal but now it looks like we have to wait 4 more years for some more jobs to open up. These are private non-publicly traded companies too.

    He filed for bankruptcy at least twice for his business? I wouldn't consider that knowing how a "business works." I respect your opinion but check your facts
    samhell
    So what you're saying is that even though he inherited his business from his father, he didn't actually grow his worth to over 3 billion dollars? Huh... interesting...

    What kind of nonsensical policy is that for your business? What use is it not to hire people just because you don't like the president? That has nothing to do with anything. If you don't hire people because the economy is bad, that's a reason. If you need new people you need new people, so you hire new people. Apart from that fact, indeed as others have said, Trump's business success isn't without doubt at all. And my personal opinion of what I know of him (which is little, because I don't live in America) is that it is an immense douche, who half the time doesn't know what he is talking about, definitely in terms of politics.
    samhell
    I agree that its nonsensical but it is actually happening.
    Fwenx
    And so what is your point with that?
    samhell
    If you have to ask you'll never know. I can't force you to think... Oh wait, thats what all this socialist government is for, to do the thinking for you.
    Fwenx
    A very weak answer, because you stopped making sense as well. Guess I am feeding the troll after all. You dissappoint me.

    Okies now free healthcare pls
    Sparky-MMA
    no country has free healthcare, he wants to base it off a similar style to the NHS we have in the UK, its not free, but you have to have insurance, we pay National Insurance from our wage in the same way the US pay for their Health Insurance, he just wants to make it standardised. there is no such thing as 'free healthcare' someones gotta pay the Doctors and Nurses.

    True, but Canada has a somewhat "free health care" system and personally i think it's great!
    badfish_lewis
    It's anything but free. Everyone pays. On top of that, it covers only certain types of care. Plus there are long line ups everytime you go to an emergency room. However, it is leaps and bounds above the American system. You get in a car accident here (Canada) and the last thing you worry about is a bill.
    scorpio2billion
    Luxembourg does, in fact, have free health care for every citizen.

    Dear USA if you feel a large breeze heading your way it's the rest of the world breathing a sigh of relief that you didn't elect the moron, I mean mormon.

    No TRUMP the world is laughing at YOU!!! As an English citizen I just want to thank any and all of the Americans that voted Obama, You Only got rid of one nut-job four years ago, the thought of another put the fear of God in me, thankfully you seem to have a lot more sense these days.

    I find it funny how the west and east costs of the states are mostly all Democratic and the insides are all Republican. That is a Country divided if I do say so myself.
