Donald Trump will become the 45th US president after a stunning victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton.
The Republican nominee’s projected victory came down to a handful of key swing states, despite
months of polling that favoured Mrs Clinton.
The battlegrounds of Florida, Ohio and North Carolina cleared the way for his Brexit-style upset.
Mr Trump’s victory in Wisconsin put him over the 270 out of 538 electoral college votes needed to win the White House.
The US president-elect took to the stage at his victory rally in New York and said: “I just received a call from Secretary Clinton. She congratulated us on our victory.”
“Hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time, and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country.”
He added: “It is time for us to come together as one united people.”
