‘Trump understands business, that’s why I voted for him’

Harriet Alexander has been speaking to a New Jersey-born Cuban businesswoman about why she is celebrating Mr Trump’s success:

Barbara Garcia, 37, who owns property and mortgage brokers, says her main reason for supporting Mr Trump is that he understands business. “What Obama did to us in terms of healthcare and the minimum wage was ridiculous,” she said. “He forced us to get rid of employees. “You can’t order me to pay for my workers’ healthcare without knowing how much I make. I agree with everyone having healthcare – but just not penalizing those who employ them.” Her parents came to the US from Cuba, and this also influenced her vote, she said. “My parents came here for freedom. And that’s what is most important to me. “People say I should support a woman for president – well, sure, but just not that woman. “And I know Trump has said some bad things – at times, I was like: ‘Put a sock in it.’ But I can deal with that. As long as he fixes this country.”

Silvio Morraz, 51, a builder from Nicaragua, says Trump is “the new Reagan. He’ll build the wall, stop drugs, stop criminals. I’m so happy.”
