Donald Trump wins the US’s 45th presidency

Update 22 Dec 2016: Congratulations, Trump. Welcome to hell
Dear Mr. Trump
You won. Welcome to hell.

And to think, I thought you’d become president when hell froze over.

Now that the election is finally behind us, may I ask a tiny question: Why did you want this job? Was it on your bucket list? After so many square miles of golf courses, trophy wives, gilt mirrors and crystal chandeliers, was there nothing left to mess with?

Donald Trump wins the presidency in stunning upset over Clinton

Donald Trump was elected the nation’s 45th president in the stunning culmination of a campaign that defied expectations and conventions at every turn and galvanized legions of aggrieved Americans in a loud repudiation of the status quo.

Hillary Clinton’s quest to make history as the first female president was thwarted by the Republican nominee’s breathtaking performance at the polls. He was carried to victory by voters fed up with the political system and mistrustful of Clinton, a former first lady, senator and secretary of state.

Trump, a 70-year-old celebrity businessman who had never before run for office, is poised to become the oldest president ever elected to a first term.

Trump beats Clinton to take White House
'I will be president for all Americans'

Donald Trump will become the 45th US president after a stunning victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

The Republican nominee defied pre-election polling to claim swing states, winning the key battlegrounds of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

He told cheering supporters that Americans must now unite and "bind the wounds of division", after a gruelling, acrimonious campaign.

Immigration Canada website crashes as desperate Americans try to escape Trump presidency

The website of Canada’s immigration ministry crashed as many Americans sought to emigrate to their northern neighbour to escape a Donald Trump presidency.

Access to the site became progressively more difficult during Tuesday evening as the Republican candidate picked up key states essential to winning the White House over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

The site displayed an error message at 11pm on Tuesday when the swing state of Florida went to Trump, a major step toward the 270 electoral votes he needed to succeed President Barack Obama.

Hollywood celebrities and recording stars in shock over Donald Trump win

There was misery for Hillary Clinton's band of Hollywood megafans as Donald Trump emerged victorious.

Many of them, including Lena Dunham, Miley Cyrus and Amy Schumer, have said they will leave the United States if Trump was elected.

Canada took to Twitter to welcome them, writing that immigrants are "encouraged to bring their cultural traditions with them and share them with their fellow citizens".

Cheer up, Canada — President Donald Trump just might be good for you

Take heart, Canada! Don’t let the dour faces on American television, journalist Twitter, and our own CBC get you down. They might all be miserably contemplating the next four years under the ethically challenged but transformational Donald Trump, instead of the ethically challenged establishment-entrenched Hillary Clinton they clearly hoped would win. Tuesday might have delivered a huge loss to the political class, intellectual class and left-leaning media. But, economically speaking anyway, Donald Trump’s victory is looking like a big win for Canada.

To be sure, we can’t be entirely certain — the NAFTA question looms large. But here’s one thing we can be sure of: A Clinton win virtually guaranteed that one big loser in the 2016 election would have been us.

It’s still impossible to tell which of Trump’s often-wild promises he will actually keep, given how unpredictable he has demonstrated himself to be. But the risk with Clinton was always the opposite. It was her political determination. Had she been allowed to govern as she was resolved to, Canada would have paid the price for as long as eight more difficult years — probably more than they will under even a loose-cannon amateur like Trump. A president Hillary Clinton would have implemented policies that would have been sure to drag down the economic growth of an economy upon which Canada overwhelmingly relies for its own.

Trump-fleeing Americans crash Canadian migration website

Some Americans joked about crossing the border to Canada if Donald Trump became the president, but it is not a joke anymore.

"Citizenship and Immigration Canada," the country's immigration website, crashed with high traffic volumes at 10:30 p.m. Tuesday (local time) as Americans who feared a Trump win rushed the site to seek an exit to Canada.

Twitter lit up in the U.S. with news of the crash and the error message. Netizens on Facebook also shared the news.

Trump win throws a monkey wrench into Canada-U.S. relations

Suddenly, a monkey wrench has been thrown into the works of Canada-U.S. relations. For so long, Canadian governments worked to make sure relations would be relatively predictable. The U.S. electorate changed that on Tuesday night.

Donald Trump, the surprise winner of the U.S. presidential race, has promised to rip up many of the things Canada has tried to nail down.

The threat of protectionist U.S. moves that would cut off crucial trade links? Canadian leaders signed free-trade agreements to blunt that danger – but Mr. Trump pledged to tear up the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Why I will vote for Donald Trump

At the beginning of the primary season, Donald Trump was the last on my list.  I knew this election would be crucial because the Democrat politicians were determined to merge America into the socialism of Europe, subjugating our national sovereignty to “greater globalism.

Trump’s bluster and the harsh words in the primary gave me doubts.  Sealing our borders was appealing, but demanding that Mexico pay for a wall seemed unreasonable.  Yet, Trump had a groundswell of support.

Over time, I realized millions of angry voters want jobs, opportunity, and honesty. Washington increasingly has regulated their every action, raised taxes, and increased the National Debt, yet failed to protect them from lawlessness or terrorism.  They are sick of Washington insiders getting fat and rich at the expense of ordinary Americans.  They see a dimmer, poorer future for our children.

Unhappy with election result? Canadians say come over

Usually when Gabe Valente is trying to sell a house, he highlights features like a new kitchen or bathroom, a recently redone roof or windows or community amenities.

But the Windsor-based broker hasn't had to dip into the hardwood-floors-and-plenty-of-sunlight playbook to attract home-buyers recently.

During these heated presidential election season, queries from Americans -- and Canadians transplanted across the Detroit River now concerned enough to consider heading back home -- have spiked 20%.

Congratulations to President-Elect Donald Trump!

Congratulations to President-Elect Donald Trump! His candidacy took many by surprise. At each stage he defied expectations, and his journey has ultimately taken him to the White House.

It has been a contentious, ugly election season, that has exposed a bitter divide in the American people. Many will celebrate this result, while others will understandably be surprised and disappointed. But like the Brexit referendum in June, Mr Trump’s victory is part of a broader pattern in developed countries – reflecting a deep frustration with the way things are, and a strong wish to reassert a sense of identity, and somehow to change the status quo.

US voters have elected a President whom they feel best represents them. Singapore fully respects their decision. We will continue to work together with the United States to cultivate our strong ties. – LHL
