Donald Trump elected as America’s 45th president


By Our Diplomatic Affairs Bureau

WASHINGTON:Donald Trump was elected America’s 45th president on Wednesday, an astonishing victory for a celebrity businessman and political novice who capitalised on voters’ economic anxieties, took advantage of racial tensions and overcame a string of sexual assault allegations on his way to the White House.

When Donald Trump takes the oath of office on January 20, the fact he will be the oldest person to do so in America’s 240-year history will be something of an afterthought.

On that day a business tycoon, reality TV celebrity and architect of one of the most divisive and incendiary campaigns in memory – a campaign that has raised comparisons to Hitler and Mussolini – will become the most powerful person on the planet , his finger on the nuclear trigger.
