America has voted for Republican Donald Trump to be the 45th President.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton has conceded the Presidential election with a phone call to the President-elect.

This comes shortly after Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta, took to the stage at the Javits Convention Center to tell Clinton supporters that several states remained too close to call and that Clinton would not comment on the race until later in the day.

 “We can wait a little longer, can’t we?” Podesta said. “They’re still counting votes and every vote should count. So we’re not going to have anything more to say tonight. . . . Everybody should head home. . . . We’ll have more to say tomorrow.”

Meanwhile, Trump promised to do a good job as president as he thanked his supporter.

Voters have given Republican Donald Trump the key to the White House as they elected him America’s 45th President.

According to reports Trump secured 276 electoral seats with a total number of 56,959,821 votes, while Clinton was only able to get 218 seats.

The Republican nominee's projected victory came down to a handful of key swing states, despite months of polling that favoured Clinton.

The battlegrounds of Florida, Ohio and North Carolina cleared the way for his Brexit-style upset, as Donald Trump took a dramatic step toward the White House with crucial battleground victories in the three states.

Meanwhile, at the US Embassy in Colombo, US Ambassador to Sri Lanka Atul Keshap said the final winner of the US presidential election is democracy.
