#DonaldTrump is the 45th President of the United States of America! [details]

After a LONG, ugly election it appears that the 45th president of OUR United States is Donald J. Trump!

Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton called Trumo to concede sometime after 2AM EST, effectively ending the contest.

Trump beat Clinton in several key battleground states, in stark contrast to polls that had Clinton on track to win by a landslide at best, and a four-point margin at worst. Trump gained an early advantage by winning Florida, and Clinton's path to victory disappeared after the Republican candidate took Pennsylvania and Ohio.

President-elect,Trump made his victory speech from a hotel ballroom in New York City, just blocks away from the cleared-out Javits Center where Clinton was to hold her own victory rally. Surprisingly, Trump began his speech with some uncharacteristically kind words about his opponent.

"I've just received a call from Secretary Clinton. She congratulated us — it's about us — on our victory, and I congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard fought campaign. She fought very hard," he said. "We owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country."

He continued, "Now it's time for America to bind the wounds of division. It's time for us to come together as one united people. I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be president to all Americans. For those who have chosen not to support me in the past, of which there are a few people, I'm reaching out to you for your guidance and your help."

He offered unusually warm words for Mrs. Clinton, who he has suggested should be in jail, saying she was owed “a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country.”

Bolstered by Mr. Trump’s strong showing, Republicans retained control of the Senate. Only one Republican-controlled seat, in Illinois, fell to Democrats early in the evening. And Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina, a Republican, easily won re-election in a race that had been among the country’s most competitive. A handful of other Republican incumbents facing difficult races were running better than expected.
