10 athlete reactions to Donald Trump being elected president
In a shocking turn of events, Donald Trump is in line to become the next President of the United States of America. Never has an election been followed with more enthusiasm, and social media went into a predictable frenzy Tuesday night when Hillary Clinton conceded.
Of course, professional athletes had reactions to the big news like most other American citizens. But since those athletes are famous and have tons of followers on Twitter and Instagram, their thoughts are read by more people.
Here are 10 of the strongest reactions we came across from the sports world:

Unfortunately, we have yet to hear from two of the highest-profile people who supposedly supported Trump. Expect a lot more reaction in the days to come before everyone eventually gets back to their normal everyday lives.
