Donald Trump becomes 45th president of the United States: US election as it happened.
  • Trump won crucial swing states to win the White House.
  • Clinton called Trump to concede the election
  • Markets tumble on prospect of Trump presidency.
  • Republicans take control of both the Senate and House of Representatives.
  • An interactive look at the campaign.
  • Global markets hold their breath.
Donald Trump was on the move?

It appears more likely than ever real estate magnate Donald Trump has secured the White House in the 2016 presidential election. That means some Democrats are looking back on their party's primaries with a certain nostalgia, pondering the thought of whether Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders would have been able to trump the Republican nominee in the general election, had he defeated Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton earlier this year.

It looked like Trump had it sewn up in Pennsylvania, but now it seems that just 89% of the votes have been counted - not 99%.
That has given Clinton's team hope and a look at the detailed breakdown of districts shows why: many of them are in Democrat areas.
  • Reuters reporting that Donald Trump has won Wisconsin
  • Various media outlets saying that Donald Trump is the new US president.
Our full report ahead of Donald Trump's speech is here.
“Donald Trump has sent shock waves across the world, sweeping to an unprecedented victory in the US election. The 70-year-old billionaire defeated his bitter rival Hillary Clinton after a ugly campaign that was dogged at every turn by racism, bigotry and scandal.

A political outsider who alienated Republicans as well as Democrats during his campaign for the nomination and then the White House, Trump demolished Clinton in key swing states including Florida, North Carolina and Ohio, in which he won 52.2% of the vote to her 43.3%.”

He is introduced by Mike Pence, his VP.

In his acceptance speech, Donald Trump congratulated Hillary Clinton not just for her campaign but for her service.

He struck a conciliatory tone, speaking of Americans of all races and religions and building consensus in a divided country.

"It is time for us to come together as one united people. I pledge that I will be president for all of America and this is so important to me," he said.
He also pledged to double growth and get along with all other nations "willing to get along with us."
"We must reclaim our country's destiny," he said.

He finishes with: 'I. Love. This. Country' and applause.

And there goes the next President of the United States. Strap in everyone.
