Donald Trump defied the polls and pundits until the very end, defeating Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in Tuesday’s presidential election.

His win comes as a “wake-up call” to establishment politicians, as his win exposes the dissatisfaction with the way politicians have run things in the past.

Trump acknowledged during his acceptance speech early Wednesday morning saying America will “get along with all other nations willing to get along with us.”
