    The majority of a number of communities in the Massachusetts did vote for Donald Trump, but that doesn’t mean everyone is accepting the results.

    Clinton took 1,964,768 votes overall in Massachusetts and Donald Trump took 1,083,069 on Tuesday.

    The now-president elect had strong support from many towns across Massachusetts. Towns like Tewksbury went for Trump by over 800 votes and Wilmington gave Trump 500 votes over Hillary Clinton.

    Bob Wells is looking forward to the next four years. However, he came outside Thursday to find his Trump campaign signs destroyed.

    “They’ve already ripped the sign down once. This is the second sign. It’s America, first amendment, freedom of speech,” he said. "He’s not a racist, he’s a great American.”

    For wells, it's an unnecessary reaction that won't change the outcome of the election.

    "We’d never even think of doing something like that against a Democratic candidate, Hillary or anybody else, and yet they do this," he said.
