World leaders did not all-together abandon their diplomacy to express shock over the news of the impending Trump presidency, but some did react in a tongue-in-cheek and curt manner.
Since media outlets began calling the declaration of the result, foreign leaders and politicians have been raising apprehensions about international relations.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel's ally¬– German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen, for instance, described the result as a "huge shock" and questioned whether the state of relative peace and stable international relations since World War Two is threatened.
Jean-Marc Ayrault, foreign minister of France said that Trump's personality "raised questions", particular in regard to key foreign policy challenges, from climate change and the West's nuclear deal with Iran to the war in Syria.
Carl Bildt, former Swedish foreign minister took to twitter and said: "Looks like this will be the year of the double disaster of the West…Fasten seat belts," he said while referring to the Brexit verdict.
But even though right-wing politicians from the same areas also celebrated the business tycoon's victory and entry into the white house, most reactions, however, were concerned about the risks an inexperienced Donald Trump presidency posed in light of the outrageous statements made by him during the elections.
Historian Simon Schama described a Trump victory and Republican control of both the Senate and U.S. House of Representatives as a "genuinely frightening prospect."
"NATO will be under pressure to disintegrate, the Russians will make trouble, 20 million people will lose their health insurance, climate change (policies) will be reversed, bank regulation will be liquidated. Do you want me to go on?" Schama told the BBC.
"Of course it's not Hitler. There are many varieties of fascism. I didn't say he was a Nazi although neo-Nazis are celebrating."
