Donald Trump won the key swing states of Florida, North Carolina and Ohio early this morning, as he marched towards the White House.
The Republican surpassed expectations and confounded pollsters in Florida, where Hillary Clinton had been expected to win following a surge in the Hispanic vote.
Mrs Clinton’s hopes of a swift victory faded as the Republican picked up a series of states early on and maintained his momentum.
Mr Trump’s unexpected success in Florida was backed up by wins in the key states of Ohio, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.
Mrs Clinton managed to win the battlegrounds of Virginia and Colorado, but she needed to take Michigan, Nevada, Iowa and Pennsylvania to have any chance.
CLINTON NOT READY TO CONCEDE
John Podesta, Mrs Clinton’s camapaign manager has said: “She is not done yet.”
He has told the Clinton election night party that the campaign is not ready to concede yet because too many states are “too close to call”.He told the crowd to go home – the campaign will not be saying anything more tonight.
“I know you’ve been here a long time,” he said.“We’re still counting votes, and every vote should count.
“Several states are still close to call, so we’re not going to have anything more to say tonight.
“Everyone should head home. You should get some sleep. We’ll have more to say tomorrow.
“We are so proud of you, and we are so proud of her. She has done amazing things and she’s not done yet.”
Boos and chants of “lock her up” rang around Mr Trump’s election night event after it was announced Mrs Clinton would not be conceding defeat.
One by one, all their predictions, all their forecasts, their obsessively mined data, their experience at calling previous elections fell apart. It all counted for nothing. Trump was demolishing the pollsters, just as he demolished his rivals to be Republican nominee, just as he – at the time of writing – looked set to demolish Hillary Clinton’s chances of assuming the presidency. Mr Trump’s unexpected success in Florida was backed up by wins in the key states of Ohio, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.
>His view on INDIA??
Donald Trump the businessman thinks of India as a potential market— a place where he can locate a hotel or pursue a similar business opportunity. Contrary to his persona as a politician, Trump the businessman doesn’t mind doing business in countries where the population are of another color or religious faith; he mainly cares about whether the project will be profitable. There is absolutely no evidence he has negative attitudes about India. Like most businessmen and businesswomen competing in our global economy, he wants America to be successful, but he also sees the benefit of utilizing some of India’s growing educated workforce.
As the president, I believe his desire to cut good deals for the US would make him continue to forge positive ties with India. But as someone who claims to be about protecting American jobs, I think he would try to walk the fine line between being pro-US while also living in the real world of globalization. He would undoubtedly promote trade and commerce between the two countries, while not openly encouraging the shipping of more American jobs to India.
Contrary to what many people say, I feel like India would be one of the big winners of a Trump presidency.
Clinton, who took twice as many trips to Pakistan as to India during her tenure at the State Department, worked hard to keep Pakistan onside during the Obama presidency. Trump, on the other hand, has declared Pakistan “the most dangerous country in the world other than Iran.”
My feeling is he does not have any anti-Indian feelings. But US is currently planning to reduce H1B visas so they can employ more Americans, this process will happen irrespective of whoever becomes the president. In conclusion Trump is not anti-Indian than any other US citizen.
Donald Trump. The president of United States of America.
