Trump has surpassed all expectations by fighting his way to the brink of being elected as President. The Republican firebrand is neck-and-neck with Hillary Clinton as the knife-edge US election race comes to a close today. Trump has beaten the odd by leading an inflammatory campaign and denouncing his rival as a “crooked” member of the political establishment. His radical policies, such as a vast Mexico border wall and the mass deportation of illegal immigrants, have sparked controversy. Donald Trump has been elected president of the United States in a stunning victory over Hillary Clinton. Trump carved his path toward the White House Tuesday through crucial battleground states of Florida, North Carolina and Ohio.

Wisconsin’s 10 electoral votes put Trump over the 270 threshold. The victories were stunning for a candidate long seen as unlikely to win the presidency. Hillary Clinton’s campaign was confident it was competitive in places like Florida and North Carolina, and even sought to expand the map with recent visits to traditionally Republican states such as Arizona. An election season that has defied expectations from the very beginning stayed true to form to the very end.
