The people have spoken. Donald J. Trump has been elected the 45th president of the Unites States of America. Many are waking up in shock and disbelief that the businessman turned politician was able to pull out a victory over career politician Hillary Clinton .
Trump’s win over Hillary Clinton, not declared until well after midnight, will end eight years of Democratic control of the White House. He’ll govern with Congress fully under Republican control and lead a country deeply divided. He faces fractures within his own party, too, given the numerous Republicans who either tepidly supported his nomination or never backed him at all.
President Trump will officially be sworn in on January 20th, 2017.
