Donald Trump wins the presidency, delivers gracious victory speech

Seventeen month of hard work and campaign has finally paid off, history has been made. Congratulate him so you can at least have a seat in united state.

 Donald John Trump is now the 45th president of the United States, capping a historic and boisterous run by an outsider who captured a loyal following across a swath of America fed up with establishment politics, the news media and elected officials.

His success was only part of a larger, crushing victory for the Republican Party, which retained the House and appeared poised to maintain Senate control.

The brash New York businessman who won at least 270 electoral votes, will take his Republican ticket to the White House in January. Trump had trailed Democrat Hillary Clinton in polling averages for nearly the entire election cycle, but he bucked prognostications by picking up states many pundits deemed out of his reach.

The 70-year-old real estate mogul who is now the oldest person ever elected to a first presidential term declared victory early Wednesday, saying...

Clinton had conceded the election and that it's time for the nation "to come together as one united people."

The Republican congratulated his Democratic rival, saying that she waged 

"a very very hard-fought campaign." He also commended her for having "worked very long and very hard" over her political career.

"Now it's time for America to bind the wounds of division — have to get together," he said. 

"To all Republicans and Democrats and independents across this nation, I say it is time for us to come together as one united people."

Trump, who had been criticized by opponents for rhetoric characterized as divisive and racist, pledged, "I will be president for all Americans, and this is so important to me."

Trump has never before held public office, but he will be joined in the executive branch by Vice President-elect Mike Pence and a host of politicians and business executives who rallied around the GOP nominee.
