Donald Trump has been elected the 45th president of the United States. He won even after all media outlets gave Clinton a comfortable lead in their election day predictions. But, Trump had predicted his win. TIME reports that at 2:50 a.m., the Republican billionaire took the stage at the Hilton hotel in Manhattan and announced that Hillary Clinton (Democratic Nominee) conceded defeat. He stated “America will no longer settle for anything less than the best, we must reclaim our country’s destiny and dream big and bold and daring… We’re going to dream of things for our country, and beautiful things and successful things once again. I want to tell the world community that while we will always put America’s interests first, we will deal fairly with everyone, with everyone.” He added, “It’s been an amazing two-year period and I love this country.”
After his speech, he then tried to heal some wounds between him and running mate… “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 noted. “I mean that very sincerely.” At the age of 70, Trump will be the oldest president ever sworn in for a first term.
He is set to take the oath of office on January 20
