Donald Trump is elected president of the United States.
The Republican nominee won after capturing Wisconsin's 10 electoral votes, putting him over the 270 threshold.
Voters eager to shake up the nation's political establishment picked the celebrity businessman to become the nation's 45th president. Trump rode an astonishing wave of support from voters seeking change and willing to accept a candidate loose with facts and accused of sexual misconduct.
