Business Mogul, Trump Wins US Presidential Election

Republican candidate, Donald Trump has been elected the 45th president of the United States.
Trump has won 289 electoral votes, 71 more than her Democratic Party’s challenger, Hillary Clinton, who has garnered 218 electoral votes. Trump, a real estate mogul, seized a wave of wide support from evangelicals and working class Americans to defeat his major challenger and Democratic Party candidate, Hilary Clinton.
Trump’s astonishing White House victory over Democratic favorite Hillary Clinton produced another demonstrably clear loser in the process: US polling. Such was the scope of pollsters’ and forecasters’ failures Tuesday night that the future of the entire industry was being thrown into question.  Clinton has telephoned her Republican Party rival, Donald Trump, conceding defeat and congratulating him for winning the election, the CNN said.
“She has called him to say she believed he (Trump) will emerge president,” a CNN anchor said a while ago.
Trump admitted that he received a congratulatory phone call from Hilary Clinton and congratulated her for running a though campaign. He also thanked her for her service to the U.S. and pledged to unite the country.
In his victory speech, Trump said: “I say it is time for us to come together as one united people,” he said.
“I pledge… that I will be president of all Americans,” he said, adding that “America will no longer settle for anything less than the best.”
