Ten 'Open Letters' That Somehow Didn't Stop Donald Trump

Despite Obama's calls for unity and Clinton telling supporters Trump must be given a "chance to lead", his victory has sparked protests in several U.S. states. She won 88 percent of the African American vote, Mr. Obama had 93 percent in 2012.

After the release of the "Access Hollywood" tape, some Republican leaders un-endorsed Trump.

"This is not the outcome we wanted or we worked so hard for, and I'm sorry we did not win this election for the values we share and the vision we hold for our country", Clinton said. "They have contributed greatly to the country and the world", said Donald Fowler, a former Democratic National Committee chairman who's close to the Clintons.

Trump was strongly favored by those seeking a candidate they believe can bring about change, capturing 81 percent of those voters who saw that quality as the most important in a president.

And Trump - who was branded a bigot for his leading role in the anti-Obama "birther" movement - won 8 percent of black votes, compared to Romney's 7 percent.

In perhaps a subtle nod to bridging the red state and blue state divide, Clinton wore a purple blouse and a dark blazer with a purple lapel while her husband wore a purple tie. With Republicans now in control of two branches of American government - the executive and legislative - he has a chance to influence the third, the judiciary, by appointing a fifth conservative judge to the Supreme Court.

By factoring in states that each party always won, added to those they won most of the time ("likely states"), the forecast result was Clinton 257 vs Trump 206 - with 75 votes up for grabs among the "swing" states.

On average, Clinton voters tend to have higher education and live in states that reliably vote for Democrats like NY and California.

Trump received minority votes in his stunning win over Democrat Hillary Clinton, and he made conciliatory comments about unity in his victory speech. Mr. Obama promised a smooth handoff to a Trump administration.

Clinton's campaign was trying to make sense of a dramatic election night in which Trump captured battleground states like Florida, North Carolina and OH and demolished a longstanding "blue wall" of states in the Upper Midwest that had backed every Democratic presidential candidate since her husband won the presidency in 1992.

"We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead", she said.

Liberal scientists against TrumpAfter Trump said he would cancel US participation in the Paris climate agreement, 375 scientists wrote an open letter speaking out against Trump's stance on the matter.

Throughout his campaign, Trump was no ordinary candidate.

And for the so-called special relationship with Britain, it will nearly certainly go on in name, the trading relationship is too important for it not to, and even though Theresa May has been far more measured in her remarks about Mr Trump than her predecessor, it is unlikely that deep bonds will be formed.

Mrs. Clinton and President Obama asked their supporters to accept the results of the election. Trump has questioned the US-led NATO's key collective defense guarantee. But in the end the 2016 election looks like it will have produced the lowest voter turnout in modern American history when it comes to percentage of the voting age population that actually voted. Obama, who had declared Trump unfit for the presidency, invited him to the White House Thursday.

Nevertheless, the Latino vote has "grown in importance, and it continues to have a bigger role in a campaign". The community is geographically and politically diverse. "We can not remain silent as we witness the rise of an American form of fascism".

Yet not all Latinos are immigrants, and not all are Mexicans.

For example Cubans, who have enjoyed a special immigration status since the 1960s, were not offended by Mr Trump's talk about Mexico sending "criminals, drug dealers, rapists".

Giuliani later told CNN that Trump would still pursue a wall along the USA border with Mexico. They also tend to look favorably on people they consider "outsiders" to what they feel is a tired, corrupt and manipulated system.
