Donald J. Trump becomes 45th US President
(Washington) – The Republican nominee, Donald J. Trump defied pre-election polling to claim swing states, winning the key battlegrounds of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
He told cheering supporters that Americans must now unite and “bind the wounds of division”, after a gruelling, acrimonious campaign.
“Hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time, and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country,” he said. He added: “It is time for us to come together as one united people.”
