Donald Trump is elected president of the United States (/r/worldnews discussion thread)
AP has declared Donald Trump the winner of the election: https://twitter.com/AP_Politics/status/796253849451429888
quickly followed by other mainstream media:
Hillary Clinton has reportedly conceded and Donald Trump is about to start his (livestream).
As this is the /sub/worldnews subreddit, we'd like to suggest that comments focus on the implications on a global scale rather than US internal aspects of this election result.
realistically, there were two forces at play here:
the force that really wanted Trump for president, and the force that really did not want Clinton for president
both pushed Trump to the right direction...

"Yeah that's me, you're probably wondering how I got myself into this situation"
Fuck those who blame voters for voting for their conscience. The dnc handed us a candidate who lost to fucking trump. That is HOW FUCKING BAD clinton was. 3rd party voters aren't to blame. They got less than 5% of the popular vote cumulatively. Nationwide. Democrats you did this to yourself. Own it and change.
Edit to add u/whatiobserve 's commentary
Clinton vs Trump generated something like 115 million votes. 20 million less than 2008. Blame the 5% all you want, but it's the shit candidates that lead to low turn outs.
I'm not sure how much of this is improv but it sure feels like speaking from the cuff and the heart.
It's so quiet in the Hillary camp you can hear an email get deleted...
