We were just about ready to get out of our driveway when we saw a white Ford F-150 truck pulling out of the driveway of a house on the east side of downtown, surrounded by a large crowd of people.
It looked like it had been parked for a while.
We followed the truck down the road, where it drove up and down the street for a bit before turning onto an overpass, where we could get a better look.
As we passed the truck, the people in the crowd, mostly teenagers, started cheering.
They started chanting “Hail Trump!” and “Hallelujah!”
“Trump, Trump, Trump!”
They started to shout “Trump” at the truck.
And the crowd went nuts.
The truck was parked outside the garage for about a half-hour, but there were still people out in the streets cheering and clapping.
The people in front of the truck were chanting “Donald Trump!”
“Hoooooo!,” and “Viva Trump!,” they shouted, and they yelled more.
We were all shocked.
It was a huge crowd.
It seemed that the people that we had just seen were in fact, very enthusiastic about the candidate who had just just been elected president of the United States.
At one point, we could see a woman walking by and asking a man who had come to the event for autographs, “Who’s your favorite Donald Trump?”
The man, who said he was a former student, said he thought Trump was a good president.
“You think he’s a good guy?” the woman said.
“Well, I voted for Trump.”
Trump was the next president, she continued.
“Trump was my hero.”
“I don’t care about the past, I just care about what I saw today,” she said, her voice cracking.
We asked her if she knew who the president was.
“Oh yeah, he’s our president!” she said.
Then we asked her what the future holds for her and her husband.
“I guess we’ll be living in the suburbs,” she answered.
