First Read’s Morning Clips: A Night of Protests

OFF TO THE RACES: A night of protests

Thousands protested Trump’s victory in the streets of New York City and around the country.

Here’s what newspapers around the world are saying about his victory.

As the Washington Post points out, the Clinton dynasty was dismantled by the same white working class voters who propelled Bill Clinton to victory.

The New York Times: "For all his boisterousness during the campaign, Mr. Trump was more muted than exuberant in its aftermath, according to people who spoke with him throughout the day. His victory over Hillary Clinton caught even him by surprise: Like Mrs. Clinton, Mr. Trump tracked the race through private polling that indicated he was headed for defeat, and he went all but silent in his apartment on Tuesday night as the returns from Florida turned in his favor."

Per Democratic strategist Steve Rabinowitz, “Jews remained disproportionately loyal to the Democratic Party nominee for president this week when compared with other base-party constituency groups. African-Americans, Latinos and young people all voted in lesser numbers Tuesday for Democrat Hillary Clinton than they did four years ago for President Barack Obama. But Jews voted in similar or greater numbers for Clinton — 71 percent this year, compared with 69 percent for Obama — while the number of Jews supporting Republican Donald Trump, at 24 percent, was significantly less than the number who voted for Republican Mitt Romney, who received 31 percent of the Jewish vote.”

Reince Priebus deserves a good share of credit for Trump’s shocking victory.

From POLITICO: "The political cast-offs, never-have-beens and backbench legislators who surround Donald Trump were warned that their work for the nominee would forever stain their resumes. Now they're in line for the most influential jobs in Washington."
