WASHINGTON, November 9. /TASS/. About 100 supporters of Donald Trump have flocked to the White House to celebrate the victory of their presidential favorite, TASS reports from the site.
THANK YOU! For all the support and votes! Our family is humbled by the support!— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) 9 November 2016

Some of them have brought along wine bottles, and rock music could be heard in the crowd. "This is a truly new day," someone shouted. Others were either singing along to their favorite songs or actively discussing the program of the president-elect, with the proposal to limit immigration from Islamic countries topping the list.
"I like his ideas on trade and immigrants. This country is absolutely unprotected," one of the young people told TASS. According to another young man, who said his name was Mike, "Trump is the winner and this is exactly what we need now".
"Obama hates the country. None of his budget programs works, especially Obamacare (healthcare reform). I have never seen the US so disunited as now," he said.
The gathering, however, was not without an incident. At some point, two men started a fight, and the crowd had to pull the brawlers away from each other. It is not clear what triggered the tussle, but possibly one of them was not a fan of Trump. "People have voted, they have had their say," Republican supporters shouted at him, as they broke the fist-fight up.
According to preliminary data, Trump has secured more than 270 electoral votes, guaranteeing his victory at the US presidential elections.
