Donald Trumps wins US election : Hillary concedes defeat

Donald Trump sensationally won the White House race this morning as Hillary Clinton phoned him at 2.30am to concede she had lost.

CNN gathered that She made the private call shortly after sending her campaign chairman to give her supporters exactly the opposite message, that it was not over - a humiliating and bizarre end to a political career which had put her on the verge of being the first female president.

Instead a jubilant Trump headquarters erupted in cheers as the news broke.
At Trump headquarters, running mate Mike Pence was first to take the stage and said: 'This is a historic night. The American people have spoken and the American people have elected their new champion.'

To chants of USA he said: 'I come to this moment deeply humbled, grateful to God for his amazing grace. I am mostly grateful to our president-elect, whose leadership and vision will make America great again.

'Let me say, it's my high honor and distinct privilege to introduce to you the President-Elect of the United States of America - Donald Trump.' 

Trump took to the stage at 2.38 am.

'Sorry to keep you waiting. Complicated business,' he said.
'I just received a call from Secretary Clinton. She congratulated us on our victory and I congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard fought campaign. She fought very hard.

'Hillary has worked very long and very hard over a very long period of time. We owe her a debt of gratitude and I mean that very sincerely.' 
Trump went on: 'For those who have chosen not to support me in the past – of which there were a few people – I am reaching out to you for your guidance and your help so that we can unify our great country.

'As I have said from the beginning, ours is not a campaign but a great movement, made up of millions of hard-working men and women.'

'No dream is too big. No challenge is too great. Nothing we want for our future is beyond our reach. America will no longer settle for less than the best,' he added.

'We must reclaim our country's destiny and be brave and bold and daring.
