US Elections 2016: Dream over for Hillary Clinton; Donald Trump new American President
This year’s Presidential Elections will be remembered for the cusp between divisive and diabolical politics of one of its kind. The ugly 2016 presidential campaign changed country’s demographics, shifted coalitions of the two major parties and created an environment of hate and accusations.
Ahead of the results, Trump said, “I would do “very well” in the crucial battleground states of Florida, North Carolina and Ohio, and acknowledge that after nearly a year and a half of campaigning the only thing left for me to do was wait and see. We’re going to win a lot of states. Who knows what happens ultimately?”
Meanwhile, Hillary was surrounded by other voters when her and former President Bill Clinton voted in Chappaqua, New York.
Speaking to reporters after registering her vote, she said, “It’s a humbling feeling. Will wait and watch what the people of America have decided for me.”
In a battle of the belts, voters are expected to witness a clear outcome tonight as total 538 votes will be declared by 1 AM.
