World leaders take stock of Trump win

Even when U.S. media outlets were still working on the electoral votes, French far-right's Le Pen congratulated Trump on his performance on her Twitter: "Congratulations to the new president of the United States Donald Trump and to the free American people."

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe offered his congratulations.

Other world leaders of Russia, the U.K., Australia and the Netherlands also sent messages to congratulate Trump.

On the other hand, German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier envisioned "more difficult" times with Trump as he tweeted: "The world won't end but it will get crazier."

Trump "cannot prevent the implementation" of the landmark Paris pact, inked in the French capital last December, said Segolene Royal, France's environment minister and outgoing head of the U.N. climate talks.

Former Swedish foreign minister Carl Bildt pointed to Britain's vote in June to leave the European Union, better known as Brexit, in a tweet.

At the same time, many Western governments are unsure whether Trump, a real estate mogul and former reality TV star with no prior political and diplomatic experience, will follow through on his campaign pledges, some of which would turn the post-war order on its head.

The whole spectrum of feelings

Things went crazy on the night of November 8 in the U.S. Trump won, to the cheers of his supporters, while the rest of the world was in shock.

Markets in free fall

Not only people, markets also went crazy, even though his speech seemed to help trim losses later. Investors fear Trump's win will cause global economic and trade turmoil.
