Donald Trump will be the next President of the United States, after pulling off a major upset against Hillary Clinton, with just a handful of states still counting votes. The Associated Press dubbed Trump the President-Elect around 2:30am Wednesday. Clinton called Trump to concede shortly after, MSNBC reported.

Ballots in some close races in major battleground states are still being counted, but Trump has a solid lead and is now projected to have more than the 270 electoral votes needed to win. Here's how the race has played out:


Want to know what's going on with Congress? Republicans have won both chambers see if your rep is one.

Clinton cancelled her election night speech at the last-minute early on Wednesday, with campaign chairman John Podesta telling supporters at around 2am EST to go home and, before the AP called the race, declining to concede.

None of the third party candidates managed to garner any electoral votes. Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson has won 3.7 million votes so far, or about 3 percent of the national popular vote. Green Party nominee Jill Stein followed with 1 percent and independent candidate Evan McMullin came in below the 1 percent mark.

    I am 15 years old. I am a proud Trump supporter and I believe Trump has what it takes to truly Make America Great Again. Voters these days are claiming Trump is racist and sexist but he is not. He is a dignified man who can make mistakes like any normal person. Politicians are not perfect! (Especially Clinton) People need to disregard any tabloid or propaganda and actually look into what both candidates offer. I agree with Trump.

    Thank the lord 14 year olds can't vote. Trump gained most votes among those in the south who didn't graduate college. What an odd coincidence

    Donald Trump is the President Elect. It's a crazy and scary thought, I know, but don't forget that we are the only people truly in charge of our lives. We can change our communities and environment. Should Donald Trump do something dangerous or damaging, it's up to each and everyone of us to raise our voices and get congress to put a leash on him(Republican or not). Don't lose faith and don't lose hope. Let's work to make our communities more prosperous. Let's support those who already contribute. Politics and religion are secondary, let's just love our neighbors and help to make our homes safe. If we work together, we can change this nation. Government is not the answer, you are. Government cannot think for you. The President is not your conscience. The President wields too much power, something that President Obama took advantage of, but perhaps now everyone will agree that Congress needs to do its job and keep the executive branch in check. We need fewer executive orders and more legislation to limit the use of executive orders. Donal J. Trump was elected president, not King, nor dictator. There are laws and it's YOUR job to raise your voice. The liberals complaining now are the same ones that let Obama abuse his executive power without question. Obama dropped more bombs than any Bush ever did, resulting in the death of hundreds of thousands of innocents. Perhaps now you'll be willing to raise your voice and put a stop to this abuse. Fight for your Liberty. Fight for your freedom. And please stand for your brothers and sisters, even if you disagree with them. Trump supporters are not racist, don't take your anger out on them. At the end of the day, this is how it is and what you choose to do about it will define you. Don't complain. Don't be lazy. And don't let yourself be distracted. Make positive changes and take the power back. Thank you for reading my long rant. There is always hope.

    We made the mistake when we let Bernie go. Trump won bc the people wanted change in the system: even if Trump's change is for the worst, Hillary would have not brought change. Bernie, being the first socialist to make it as far as he did, would have also caused change due to his left-wing ideologies. I do not support our country's decision, but I accept it. May then best come from this, and I'll see you again at the polls in 2020.

    I'm 14 and all for trump. Trey GOWDY would made a great Attorney General, pence would be a great co. Hillary Clinton would just start war with Russia starting with that stupid no fly zone she wants to put up, which would lead to WW3 I agree with David and Sophia.

    If you are under 18 your political views dont matter. With that being said, Muslims, Latinos, the LGBTQ community, African Americans, and several other groups are now in fear for their lives because of the things trump has said. This is terrible.

    Trump has made derogatory statements about almost every single Oppressed group. He wants to defund planned parenthood, but, for the record, planned parenthood isn't just an abortion clinic, it also is a cheap way to get life saving cancer screenings, contraceptives, and general women's health, which many people rely on. Also deporting Muslims when the majority of domestic terrorism is committed by white people? It doesn't make sense, and is just a result of the bigotry that is Donald Trump.

    Pretty sad when a "stupid" 14 year old knows how to find a better presidential candidate than Hillary Clinton. Jill stein would've been great for us but she is in no way gonna win. Gary Johnson is not really fit for us. Clinton wants to build a no fly zone which means war with Russia who has more man power and nuclear war heads than us and trump wants peace with Russia. It's called common sense, it's sad when a 14 year old who can't vote has more common sense than a person who has no common sense and can vote. @Meghan
