After one of the most controversial and vitriolic campaigns in recent history, Donald Trump has been elected as the 45th president of the U.S. In his victory speech, Trump had conciliatory words for his opponent Hillary Clinton: “Hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time, and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country.” He pledged that he would be “president for all Americans,” and later wrote on Twitter: “Such a beautiful and important evening! The forgotten man and woman will never be forgotten again. We will all come together as never before.”
