US Election Results: Donald Trump Defeats Hillary Clinton To Win Presidential Race

Republican Donald Trump has defeated his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in the US election, according to ABC election analyst Antony Green, and will become America's next president.

Both candidates had early victories but Mr Trump picked up the key battleground states of OhioFlorida and North Carolina.
Mrs Clinton will not be speaking publicly this evening.

"We're not going to have anything more to say tonight. So listen to me, everybody, you should head home. You should get some sleep. We'll have more to say tomorrow," Ms Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta told a room full of supporters in New York.
While Green has called it for the Republican, some US media outlets are yet to announce a Trump win.
"There are the current numbers, 259 for the Republicans, if you give Pennsylvania the Republicans, 279 and they can quote that," Green said on ABC24.
"We think the Republicans will win Wisconsin as well. So they've got two paths. But Associated Press have given Pennsylvania away and they've got 97 per cent of the votes counted of the precincts counted in Pennsylvania and the Republicans are more than 1 per cent ahead.
"It looks like that's the state that's put Donald Trump over the quota and into the White House."
Predictions say the GOP will also hold onto a majority in the House and gain control of the Senate.
The shock result came after opinion polls over the weekend showed Mrs Clinton went into polling day with the advantage over her Republican rival.
