President Donald Trump.

Better get used to saying that, America.

Whether you like it or not, Trump has been elected the 45th President of the United States, beating out Hillary Clinton in an election that completely shocked many Americans – and Canadians.

But for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, a Trump win was not the end of the world, like some people had predicted.

Trudeau released a very Canadian statement regarding the freshly-crowned President:

“On behalf of the Government of Canada, I would like to congratulate Donald J. Trump on his election as the next President of the United States. Canada has no closer friend, partner, and ally than the United States. We look forward to working very closely with President-elect Trump, his administration, and with the United States Congress in the years ahead, including on issues such as trade, investment, and international peace and security.The relationship between our two countries serves as a model for the world. Our shared values, deep cultural ties, and strong integrated economies will continue to provide the basis for advancing our strong and prosperous partnership.”

Other Canadians did not congratulate Donald Trump. Instead, they took to their Twitter accounts and released a tirade of unfortunate tweets expressing pure sadness, anger and in some cases, comedy gold.

Locals also took to Twitter to express themselves with many hashtags like #proudtobecanadian #meanwhileincanada and #wtf trending in Vancouver and across the rest of the country.

Meanwhile on the other side of the border hashtags like #marryacanadian and #movetocanada are trending.
