Donald Trump has defeated Hillary Clinton.
It was one of the most shocking U.S. elections in modern political history.
Trump pledged to every citizen of his land that he will be president for all Americans.
For those who have chosen not to support him in the past, of which there were a few people, he is reaching out to them for yheir guidance and there help so they can work together and unify their great country.
He also said Hillary Clinton had called him to concede the race. ‘Hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time, and they owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to their country,’ he said.
Trump’s upset was one he had been predicting for months, gleefully comparing himself to the Brexit vote in England. Yet it was one that almost no other major predictors foresaw, all giving Clinton various degrees of comfortable leads in their election day predictions.
It was Donald Trump versus almost all the experts, it looks like Donald Trump was right,” Jake Tapper said on CNN at 10:40 pm on election night (before major battleground states had been called).
In the general election, Trump did not run his campaign in any sort of traditional way. He was outspent in campaign ads by Clinton by 3 to 1, and he had a small, disorganized ground game up against the Clinton election machine.
‘TIME’ magazine wrote two separate cover stories about the meltdowns and disarray inside the Trump campaign.
Not to mention the candidate’s freewheeling, bombastic speaking style and penchant for engaging in Twitter fights with Gold Star families and former beauty pageant contestants.
Trump’s victory exposed real divisions and new fault lines in the American populace, as he was on track to win huge majorities of non-college educated whites, while winning less of college-educated whites, who are normally reliably Republican.
The fight between the first female major party candidate and the man accused of sexually assaulting women also turned into a referendum on gender; ‘what women can be, and what men can get away with, as TIME put it in the cover story the week before the election.
As president, Trump has promised he will build a wall along the border with Mexico, suspend the Syrian refugee resettlement program, repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act and renegotiate NAFTA.
His election, coupled with Republican control of Congress, will also likely put a new conservative Supreme Court justice in the seat vacated by the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
