DONALD TRUMP’S victory in the US elections left Ximo Puig “in a state of shock.”  

Valencia’s regional president admitted that at 4.45am on election night he was afraid to look at his mobile:  “I had a bad feeling and my hunch was right.”

Although he disagreed with what they had decided, American citizens had made a democratic decision, Puig continued.  As far as he was concerned, Trump’s election was bad news and he had asked the president-elect not to go through with his promises.

He could only hope, Puig said, that once he takes office Trump will change and shoulder his responsibilities “in a fitting manner.”

Asked about possible repercussions on the region, Puig said there were economic grounds for anxiety as the Valencian Community is an exporter that needs specific trade policies. Trump’s election raised a great deal of uncertainty in this respect, he said.
