Quite a number of stunned and dumbfounded Americans have begun to take to Twitter to express their chagrin after Donald Trump’s victory at the US election – with the significance of the date not going unnoticed.
November 9 is written in the USA as 11/9 – the reverse of 9/11, the most devastating day in the country’s history.
Almost three thousand people died on September 11, 2001, when four co-ordinated terror attacks rocked the USA.
But people – mostly Americans – are comparing Trump’s election win to that tragic morning, which is a mark of how passionately some feel he should not be in the White House.
See tweets below:
I'm reminded that today, in the rest of the world, the date is not 11/9, it's 9/11.
