MOLINE, Illinois-- As early morning risers slowly enter the Donut Delite shop in  Moline, many of them had mixed reactions to the news of Donald Trumps victory over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential Elections.

" I was a little bit surprised, but it's something that we have to accept," says long time customer, Linda Gentry.

For most of the people in the dounts shop, Trump's win evoked powerful emotions to the point where they did not want to talk about it, while others were more optimistic about what the next four years will bring.

They hope now with the U.S  Senate, House of Representatives and now the Executive branch of the government are dominated by Republicans, more will be accomplished with less government stalemate.

"(Trump) needs to learn how to talk to people and think before he speaks, but there's got to be a reason for it," says Gentry.

After the results, Hillary Clinton did not address voters directly.

Trump will meet President Obama at the White House later on today. This will be his first visit inside the White House as well as his first meeting with President Obama.
