Election 2016 Trump wins presidency, defeats Clinton in historic election upset Published 1 year ago on November 9, 2016 By Trevor Decker Facebook TwitterDonald Trump, defying the pundits and polls to the end, was projected to defeat Hillary Clinton in Tuesday’s presidential election and claim an establishment-stunning victory that exposes the depth of voter dissatisfaction – and signals immense changes ahead for American policy at home and abroad. Seventeen months after the billionaire tycoon’s Trump Tower entrance into the race, the first-time candidate once dismissed by the political elite will become the 45th president, Fox News projects. Speaking to cheering supporters early Wednesday morning at his victory party in New York City, the Republican candidate and now president-elect said Clinton called to congratulate him, and Fox News confirms she has conceded. Despite their hard-fought campaign, Trump praised Clinton for her service and said “it is time for us to come together as one united people.” “I will be president for all Americans,” Trump vowed, after a brief introduction by running mate Mike Pence. Sounding a call to “reclaim our country’s destiny,” Trump declared: “The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. … America will no longer settle for anything less than the best.” Related Topics:Donald TrumpElection 2016featured postTrump Advertisement You may like LIVE Stream: The Inauguration of Donald J.
