Donald Trump Wins the US Elections

Donald Trump won the US presidential election early this morning in a stunning victory that sent shockwaves around the world.

The Republican took the key swing states of Florida, North Carolina and Ohio early this morning, as he marched towards the White House.

Mr Trump pledged that he would be "president for all Americans" in his New York victory speech.

He said he was "reaching out" to the people who had not supported him to "unify the country".

"Now it's time to bind the wounds of division. I say to Democrats and Republicans it is time come together as one united people," he said.

"I pledge to be president for all Americans," he said, adding: "The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer."

Mrs Clinton’s hopes of a swift victory faded as the Republican picked up a series of states early on and maintained his momentum.

Financial markets around the world plummeted as votes for Mr Trump stacked up.

Mr Trump's threats to rip up a free trade agreement with Mexico and tax money sent home by migrants to pay for building a wall on the southern US border if elected president caused the peso to hit a record low.

Nigel Farage, the leader of Ukip, described the result as "bigger than Brexit".

He told The Telegraph that Mr Trump's election will represent a "massive result" for Britain.

He said that the UK would have a "friend in the White House" who will prioritise trade relations with the UK.
