Donald Trump Wins US Presidential Election.
Donald John Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States on Tuesday .
After a long and bitterly-fought campaign, Trump today wins 276 electoral votes from 27 states, six more than the 270 needed to win the Presidency. His opponent, Hillary Clinton, won a fewer-than-expected 218 votes. Results are still coming in from some states, but they no longer matter.
