Donald Trump, Donald Trump new us president, Donald Trump news, Donald Trump us, president Donald Trump Donald Trump was elected as America’s 45th President on Tuesday. Bollywood had trouble accepting it but Ram Gopal Varma is his biggest fan.

At the end of a polarising and divisive campaign, Donald Trump has been chosen as the US President Elect. The news was met with shock and surprise across the world and Bollywood celebs took to Twitter to share their views on the election.

Most of them found it hard to digest the news with one big exception — the eternal contrarian, Ram Gopal Varma. This is what he wrote, “💃Am congratulating myself😎for predicting a Trump victory✌️️more than 4 months ago😀..I am throwing a Trumping party tonite🍺🍾🍴😘😍All those people who thought Trump was nonsensical are now proved to be nonsensical Ha ha 👍👍👍😎😎😎All places Obama won last,Trump won now inspite of Obama campaigning against him thus proving he defeated Obama too apart from Hillary.”

Trump’s win and his triumph over Hillary Clinton will end eight years of Democratic dominance of the White House and threatens to undo major achievements of President Barack Obama.

Sunny Leone has this to say about the election results: “What is most surprising is the entire government system is red now! Trump won’t have many hurdles to pass to do anything he wants! 😬😳😐😧😩.”

Radhika Apte shared her reaction: “Sad shocking and scary.. Wonder what we have in store for..” Emraan Hashmi seems to be in shock as he tweeted, “Wholly S#*! Did that just happen (sic)!!!!’

    When will this Leftists and bleeding-heart s in the movie industry ever learn and understand the noise on the ground - they need to have their ears open and on the ground as does our leftist media (read NDTV, Rajdeep, etc.). Donald Trump won fair and square. This is the common man's frustration which manifests into these results. The same movie industry and our leftist media had predicted otherwise in 2014 India elections too - they could not believe Modi actually won. Shahrukh Khan had promised to leave the country if Modi wins - he is still here, ain't he ??
