It’s been a week since Donald Trump became the US president elect and for some, the news is still sinking in. Others have reacted with despair or anger, while others still have talked about standing up determinedly against what’s coming.
The latter party include Avengers stars Chris Evans, who plays Captain America, Mark Ruffalo, who is of course Bruce Banner aka The Hulk, and Samuel L Jackson, namely Nick Fury.
No more fear. Only hopeful optimism. I gonna let love be my guide. All my energy will now go towards protecting the rights of ALL Americans
