Republican Donald Trump won Tuesday’s general election to become the 45th president of the United States.
Trump won key states such as Florida and Ohio, surprising experts that had expected Democrat Hillary Clinton to defeat the political outsider in Tuesday’s US election.
Trump surged to wins in Florida, Ohio, Iowa and North Carolina, and in Wisconsin. With voting completed across the country, he also narrowly led in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Arizona, pushing him into the White House.
Shortly after Fox called Wisconsin for Trump, celebrating supporters at his election night rally in New York began to chant “lock her up” — a common refrain on the campaign trail for the former US secretary of state repeatedly dubbed “Crooked Hillary” by the volatile Trump.
In a speech following the victory, Trump said it is now time for the nation to come together.
