: Donald Trump defeated Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton to become the 45th President of the United States on Wednesday.

Following this, Trump was called to the podium to give his victory speech, by Vice-President elect Mike Pence.

"I am sorry to keep you waiting, complicated business, thank you very much. I just received a call from secretary Clinton, she congratulated us on our victory and I congratulated her and her family on the very hard fought election," Trump began.

"I say it is time for Americans to come together as one united people. I pledge to be President for all Americans. I am reaching out to those who did not support me, for your guidance and your help," Trump said.

 

“Ours was not a campaign but rather an incredible and great movement made up of hard working men and women,” the President-elect said.

"Every American will have the opportunity to realise his or her potential. The forgotten Americans will no longer be forgotten," Trump said.

"We should become second to none. We will put millions of our people to work," he added.

"Working together, we will begin the unfinished business of rebuilding our nation," Trump said.

“I want to tell the world community that while we will always put America’s interest first, we will work with everyone. It will be a partnership, not a contract,” Trump said.

Earlier, US vice-president elect Mike Pence said that ‘the American people have spoken, and the American people have elected a new president’.

 

“I come to this moment deeply humbled, and grateful to God. I am deeply grateful to the American people for giving us this opportunity to serve.”

Pence congratulated the President-elect Donald Trump, whose leadership he said would make America great again. He then called on Donald Trump to take the stage, to loud cheers.
