Donald trumps Clinton to become America’s 45th President
Republican Donald J. Trump floored Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton to become the 45th President of the United States of America.
Trump won the hotly contested race to White House after surpassing the 270 electoral college votes.
Trump’s series of shocking wins in battleground states such as Florida and Ohio were compared to Britain’s unexpected historic vote to leave the European Union in June this year.
Polls in both U.S. election and Brexit poll predicted the opposite.
70-year old Trump, a wealthy real-estate developer and former reality TV host, rode a wave of anger towards Washington insiders to challenge Clinton, whose gold-plated establishment resume includes stints as a First Lady, U.S. Senator and Secretary of State.
Ms Clinton immediately called Trump to concede defeat.
THIS MAN TRUMP
Donald John Trump was born on June 14, 1946 in Jamaica Estates, Queens, a neighborhood in New York City.
Trump is the chairman and president of The Trump Organization, which is the principal holding company for his real estate ventures and other business interests.
During his career, Trump has built office towers, hotels, casinos, golf courses, and other branded facilities worldwide.
From 1988, the business mogul kept shifting between the Democrats and the Republicans but finally settled on Republicans after the election of President Barack Obama with whom he quickly established a vicious enmity.
Trump propagated conspiracy theories that Obama had lied about being born in the U.S., therefore, invalidating his right to the presidency.
Trump has also survived public outrage regarding his pledge to ban Muslims entering the U.S., calling immigrants from Mexico rapists, attacking the family of a U.S. soldier killed in Iraq, mocking a disabled New York Times reporter as well as leaks detailing boasts of unsolicited sexual advances in graphic detail.
