Republican Donald Trump elected US president, calls his campaign a movement


New York: Upsetting the Democrat apple cart led by Hillary Clinton and stunning the world with a historic and almost an unpredictable win, Republican nominee Donald Trump was elected president of the United States on Tuesday.

Riding on the resentment among working class Americans, Trump pulled off a spectacular victory ending an eight year old Democrat rule fighting a poll which was highly polarized and marked with mud-slinging and various allegations against each other.

“To be really historic [as the win is called historic] we have to do great job,” he said in a speech at the Trump headquarters in New York, while not forgetting to thank his rival Hillary Clinton who also called him and congratulated him on his historic win.

“It is a movement,” he called his gruelling campaign and even called it nasty and urged all to come together.

“Time for us to come together….we will become second to none,” he said, urging all to build America. “I love this country,” he said amid applause.

“We have a great economic plan, we will double our growth,” he said, adding that it will create job for all and said “we will get along with all other nations who are willing to get along with us.”

“No dream is too big, no challenge too great,” he said, adding that America will settle for only the best.

“We will deal fairly with everyone,” he assured,

Trump crossed the 270 mark electoral votes required to win and is predicted to win around 289 seats. 435 seats were up for grabs.

An election for President of the United States occurs every four years.

The election process begins with the primary elections and caucuses and moves to nominating conventions, during which political parties each select a nominee to unite behind.

The nominee also announces a Vice Presidential running mate at this time.

The candidates then campaign across the country to explain their views and plans to voters and participate in debates with candidates from other parties.

During the general election, Americans head to the polls to cast their vote for President. But the tally of those votes—the popular vote—does not determine the winner. Instead, Presidential elections use the Electoral College.

To win the election, a candidate must receive a majority of electoral votes.

In the event no candidate receives the majority, the House of Representatives chooses the President and the Senate chooses the Vice President.

A candidate needs the vote of at least 270 electors—more than half—to win the Presidential election.
