Against all the odds, Republican nominee Donald J. Trump has been elected as the 45th President of the United States. After shockingly picking up Wisconsin and Michigan (along with delivering in Pennsylvania), Trump surpassed the 270 electoral requirement to obtain the presidency.
Originally, when it became clear that he was the winner, none of the media networks immediately declared Trump President-Elect. The call came officially when a memo was sent to the media, stating that Hillary Clinton called the Republican nominee to concede.
Her call came after Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta addressed attendees at Hillary’s Victory Headquarters and told them to go home.
