November 9, 2016: Donald Trump has managed to pulled a surprising victory over his opponent Hillary Clinton to win the U.S presidency. Many experts had expected a Clinton landslide based on polls which had shown her leading in every corner of most States. No one has an answer of what really went wrong with Clinton losing the election with high expectations that she would win easily.
Trump wins by taking over the swing States including Florida and Pennsylvania. No one saw it coming as a Hillary Clinton easy win was expected. Clinton called Trump to concede the race, and is expected to address her supporters later today. During his victory speech, Trump thanked Clinton and called for those who did not support to come and unite with him.
“Now it’s time for America to bind the wounds of division,’ he began his victory speech just before 3am. ‘I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be president for all Americans – and this is so important to me.”, he said. “For those who have chosen not to support me in the past – of which there were a few people – I’m reaching out to you for your guidance and your help, so we can work together and unify our great country…..I promise you that I will not let you down,’ Trump said.
Trump now has 289 of the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency. There is still three States left to be called.
