It looked impossible. It looked like a joke. It looked pretty much a one way ticket for Hillary Clinton. But Donald Trump defiled all odds. Donald Trump won the US presidential election in a way many never expected or predicted.
Donald Trump won the US presidential election early this morning in a stunning victory that sent shockwaves around the world. The Republican took the key swing states of Florida, North Carolina and Ohio early this morning, as he marched towards the White House.
Mr. Trump pledged that he would be "president for all Americans" in his New York victory speech.
He said he was "reaching out" to the people who had not supported him to "unify the country".
"Now it's time to bind the wounds of division. I say to Democrats and Republicans it is time come together as one united people," he said.
"I pledge to be president for all Americans," he said, adding: "The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer."
He said it was not a campaign but a movement that had won him the White House, comprised of "all people of different backgrounds and beliefs".
He said victory had been "tough". "This political stuff is nasty and it's tough," he said, while thanking his family.
It was an extraordinary election night. Mr. Trump won some early east coast states and did not look back. When he secured the key swing state of Florida, a clear path to the presidency was laid out. He went on to win Ohio and South Carolina.
In a conciliatory speech Mr. Trump added: "We will get along with all other nations willing to get along with us. We will deal fairly with everyone. We will seek common ground, partnership not conflict.
"America will no longer settle for anything less than the best. We must reclaim our destiny."
While Nigerians were busy shouting and campaigning for Hillary Clinton, we the Indigenous people of Biafra stood firm with Donald Trump.
Congratulations to the next President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. We the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) are very pleased and excited to see the outcome of your well fought Victory, after so much prayer and support for him. IPOB would also like to say, we believe that the new elected president of the United States of America, would surely make a difference in Africa and also make freedom of speech/expression towards Self-determination a reality in Africa.
So Biafrans would like to say to you Donald Trump, welcome to the white House, Mr. President!
