Nearly half of all eligible voters did not vote, according to The United States Election Project. Out of 231,556,622 in the Voting-Eligible Population (VEP), there were only 131,018,000 ballots counted.

When compared with the 2008 and 2012 elections, we see almost 9 million less people voting in 2016:

Turnout
2012 Obama: 65.9m
2016 Clinton: 59.1m = -6.8m
2012 Romney: 60.9m
2016 Trump: 59m = -1.9m

You tell me what happened

If you count minors and mentally handicapped people, a majority of people in this country effectively voted for no president. If there were anything remotely democratic about this system, we should not see any president elected at all.

Of course, this begs the question, what could possibly grant a person the so-called right to rule others?

Can a majority create the right to rule others? Or is it that the right to rule is something that is reserved for a certain class of people, such as the political ruling class that exists here in the US?
