November 2016

 Republican candidate Donald Trump was elected as the next US president on 9 November. His rival, Democrat Hillary Clinton, conceded the election overnight shortly after losing the pivotal state of Pennsylvania. Narrow margins separated the two candidates in many states, as well as in the nationwide vote, underscoring the polarisation of the electorate after a lengthy and often divisive campaign. Due in part to Trump’s strong showing, Republicans also retained a slim majority in the US Senate (upper house), as well as a strong majority in the House of Representatives (lower house).
