Donald Trump Elected 45th US President, Changed Twitter Status…

After a rigorous and well fought election campaign, Donald Trump won the US election early this morning in a stunning victory that sent shockwaves around the world.
Mr Trump pledged that he would be "president for all Americans" in his New York victory speech. 
He said he was "reaching out" to the people who had not supported him to "unify the country".
"Now it's time to bind the wounds of division. I say to Democrats and Republicans it is time come together as one united people," he said.
"I pledge to be president for all Americans," he said, adding: "The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer."

The Republican took the key swing states of Florida, North Carolina and Ohio early this morning, as he marched towards the White House.
Very few people thought Trump would actually run, then he did. They thought he wouldn't climb in the polls, then he did. They said he wouldn't win any primaries, then he did. They said he wouldn't win the Republican nomination, then he did.

He has also updated his Twitter profile to reflect his new status as president-elect.  

President Obama has called Donald Trump to congratulate him and invite him to a meeting at the White House on Thursday to discuss the transition of power.
Obama also phoned Hillary Clinton to congratulate her on her campaign.
The president will make a statement on Wednesday at the White House "to discuss the election results and what steps we can take as a country to come together after this hard fought election season", the White House press secretary said in a statement.
