Obama Just Gave Deep Advice to Young People Saddened By Trump’s Win

Speaking at a G5 event in Athens, Greece, Obama shared reassuring words for all those devastated by the results of a sobering election by reminding supporters that by definition democracy is bigger than just one person.

As hard as it can be sometimes,” he explained of accepting a Trump presidency, “progress follows a winding path, sometimes forward, sometimes back; but as long as we retain our faith in democracy, as long as we retain our faith in the people…then our future will be okay.”

Obama pointed out that although he and the president-elect could not be more different, they are just two men in a much larger system. We cannot let an upset spoil our trust in the democratic process. These comments are especially pivotal for young people, just starting to get involved in the future of the US. As Obama indicates, we can’t let this defeat, defeat us–democracy will always trump Trump.
