Election 2016: Donald Trump wins, GOP keeps House, wins the Senate

The Republicans will control the White House and both chambers of Congress in January as Donald Trump successfully pulled out a big victory over Hillary Clinton. Moreover, the GOP lost some seats in the House of Representatives, but took control of the Senate.

“Now it’s time for America to bind the wounds of division — have to get together,” Trump said during a short speech in New York around 3 a.m. “To all Republicans and Democrats and independents across this nation, I say it is time for us to come together as one united people.”

Trump, who had been criticized by opponents for his heated rhetoric, pledged, “I will be president for all Americans, and this is so important to me.”

Senators Marco Rubio (Fla), Ron Johnson (Wis), Richard Burr (NC), Todd Young (IN), Pat Toomey (PA), Rob Portman (OH), Roy Blunt (MO) all won and helped propel their respective states to a Trump victory.

Trump will be the 45th President of the United States, the oldest at the swearing in, age 70 and will take aim at President Obama’s legacy, Obamacare, and a liberal leaning media.

Trump won with 289 electoral votes compared to 218 for Clinton.

CNN perpetuated the racist narrative of attacking Trump, describing “His winning coalition of largely white, working-class voters” attacking his knowledge of political issues and attempting to link stock market futures to the win: “Global markets already began tumbling late Tuesday.”

“The Trump victory also marks a rejection of the mainstream news media, which extensively covered Trump’s scandals and self-contradictions. Polls showed many of the Republican’s supporters dismissed those reports,” CNBC reported on how the media is getting their facts and polls wrong.

On the Senate, Kelly Ayotte’s race in New Hampshire against Maggie Hassan is too close to call with Ayotte leading by 1,500 votes. Expect the recount there, but Ayotte to come out on top.
