Students on the BYU Campus expressed mixed feelings the day following Donald Trump’s historic electoral victory.
Some came to school triumphantly sporting red “Make America Great Again” hats, while others somberly grieved the aftermath of Hillary Clinton’s stunning defeat. Almost all seemed to be in complete shock of the results.
