The Obama administration’s disbelief over Trump’s victory can be heard in White House spokesman Josh Earnest’s comments at a Wednesday news brief.
“It’s far too early for me to discern exactly what message the voters were trying to send last night,” said Earnest.
“There’s certainly is a lot of speculation about what that may have been, most of that speculation emanates from people who predicted a very different result last night.”
He then went on to say that it’s going to take a while for people to evaluate the election to see what drove voters to elect Donald Trump on Tuesday.
“It’s going to require more than 12 hours of consideration to get to the bottom of what was actually motivating so many people who cast votes at the polls yesterday.”
