It is already clear that Donald Trump won the presidential election and became the 45th President of the USA. Hillary Clinton had to acknowledge Trump’s primacy. In her speech she thanked her voters and closest co-workers. You may be confused, why Trump emerged victorious while he had less amount of votes. But as I mentioned in my previous article, elections in America are not direct. Citizens cast their votes on electors. Trump achieved the minimum of 270 electors – accurately 306 votes and it was over 70 more than Clinton had.
