    Donald Trump has been elected the 45th President of the United States, shocking the world as he defied pre-election polling to take the White House this morning.

    The Donald’s unexpected triumph marks the end of his 10-month presidential race against Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton – one of the meanest and most divisive campaign battles of all time.

    Millions tuned in this morning to watch the events unfold, with Trump taking the key states in the early hours. His victory has unsurprisingly blown up the internet, even crashing the Canadian immigration website with an influx of US citizens prepared to denounce the flag and prompting #RIPAmerica to begin trending on Twitter.
