This is the state of #ElectionNight at 2:31 am ET: Donald Trump will be the next United States president.
🔴 Trump: 276
🔵 Clinton: 218
Trump, 70, will be the 45th president of the United States. A real-estate developer and former reality-TV star, Trump is the first person to win the presidency without having previously held public office or served in the U.S. military.
Mike Pence, 57, will be vice president. Pence was a longtime member of the House of Representatives and is now the Republican governor of Indiana.
Trump’s victory could produce significant repercussions, both economic and political if he tries to follow through on aggressive campaign promises: to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, to impose tougher trading conditions on China, and to force U.S. manufacturers not to move operations overseas.
