MONROVBIA, LIBERIA-Americans have elected Representative Candidate, Donald Trump, as the 45 President of the United States of America, following a win over Democrat rival, Hilary Clinton.

The Republican Candidate’s victory came to a handful of key swing states, despite months of polling that favored Mrs. Clinton.

Mr. Trump’s shocking victory in Wisconsin put him over 270 out of 538 Electoral College votes needed to win the White House, after a grueling and rancorous campaign.

The US President-elect took to the stage with his family at his victory rally in a New York hotel ballroom and said he received a call from Secretary Clinton.

The real estate tycoon, former reality TV stars and political newcomer, who was universally ridiculed when he declared his candidacy in June last year, said his victory had been tough.

Mr. Trump has so far won 28 US States, smashing into Mrs. Clinton’s vaunted electoral firewall in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, states that have not supported a Republican Presidential candidate since 1988, respectively.

He also prevailed in Iowa, which has not elected a Republican since 2004.

Mr. Trump held on to solidly Republican territory, including in Georgia, Arizona and Utah, where the Clinton campaign had invested resources in the hope of flipping the States.
