Information and ICT Minister Frank Tumwebaze has spoken out on the stunning rise of Donald Trump to the highest political seat in United States, saying the new enlightened world can no longer be influenced by biased media.

Trump floored Hillary Clinton in a heated election Tuesday, contrary to earlier predictions by prestigious pollsters, data analysts and western media that gave the latter a possible landslide.

The Clinton camp was visibly devastated as Trump grabbed key Democratic Party strongholds and swing states such as North Carolina, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.

Most of the top media houses including New York Times and Washington Post publicly threw their weight behind Clinton in what appeared a concerted effort to defeat Trump.

But the polls showed Trump emerging stronger than earlier anticipated.

Speaking to ChimpReports, Tumwebaze said, “The election of Trump was a real defeat of propaganda and conspiracy among the elite that believe in sloganeering.”

Clinton’s allies had tried to portray Trump as immoral and too evil to occupy the White House.

Tumwebaze said, “Whether they knew his strength and they deliberately covered it up with their biases and spinning for their partisan interests, all fell flat.”

Trump has spent the better part of his life doing business.

Clinton’s crushing defeat at the hands of an outsider and inexperienced politician like Trump left many in shock.

“Therefore those who believe that they can influence public opinion through media partisan narratives and slogans should have a take way lesson from this trump thing,” said Tumwebaze.

In his victory speech, Trump called for the binding of wounds to heal and unite the great nation.

He takes oath in January 2017.
