Donald Trump Won the 2016 Presidency Elections

On November 9th, 2016, 2:52 am (U.S timing), Donald Trump won the United States presidency elections with 57, 144, 469 votes.

The tedious and unnerving U.S elections finally conclude as voters of Donald Trump, the Republican Party nominee, overpower Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party nominee, by 948, 376 votes.

Donald Trump had been the subject of extensive scrutiny for his racial bias, sexist comments, and his approach to controversial topics. Numerous footages have leaked regarding his behavior which earned him scowls and opposition.

On the other hand, Hillary Clinton’s supporters included numerous leading celebrities, such as Katy Perry, Beyonce, and Lady Gaga.

However, the support from Florida, North Carolina, and Ohio tipped the victory to Trump.

Shortly after the election, CNN reported that Clinton had called Trump to congratulate.

“I have just received a call from Secretary Clinton. She congratulated us – it’s about us and our victory – and I congratulated her on a very hard fought campaign,” Trump said.

The final results of the 2016 presidential elections shock millions around the world while, simultaneously, serves as a reason to rejoice for many Trump supporters.
