"I hope that he will be a successful president for all Americans".

"As final results continue to be tabulated it would be inappropriate for us to participate in conjecture", the association said.

Mr Trump sought to give reassurance to global leaders about his intentions: "I want to tell the world community that, while we will always put America's interests first, we will deal fairly with everyone - all people and all other nations".

If she had won, Clinton would have become the first female president of the United States.

Clinton "has lived a extraordinary life of public service" as the First Lady, the senator of NY and the Secretary of State, Obama recounted. "I could not have been more wrong about this election". Trump had 59,428,493. That difference of almost 200,000 is razor-thin considering the nearly 120 million votes counted so far.

Obama says he's instructing his team to make sure there is a peaceful transfer of power to Donald Trump.

But the president, standing in front of the Oval Office, downplayed the notion that Mr Trump's presidency would mean an about-face for the nation.

In closing her remarks Clinton made a direct appeal to young people and women of all ages.

The sitting President spoke from the White House rose garden the afternoon after one of the most startling upsets in modern USA politics, and ensured the American people of a peaceful transition of power. "Now, I know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling, but someday someone will and hopefully sooner than we might think right now".

"Never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world, to pursue and achieve your own dreams".

During his acceptance speech to supporters early Wednesday, Trump congratulated Clinton on her campaign effort. Instead, she lost it by one.

Clinton's campaign was trying to make sense of a dramatic election night in which Trump captured battleground states like Florida, North Carolina and OH and demolished a longstanding "blue wall" of states in the Upper Midwest that had backed every Democratic presidential candidate since her husband won the presidency in 1992. And, according to a comment Hillary Clinton made in September and later apologised for, "deplorables". "I'm sorry that we got here a little bit late and a little bit short", Kerry said.

But Trump obliterated Clinton's firewall, picking off unexpected wins in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, as well as sweeping swing states like North Carolina, Florida and Ohio.

A few weeks ago, Clinton's lead was even more pronounced.

That fact was obscured by national exit polls that showed Obama faring worse among white voters than any Democratic nominee since 1984.

It is possible that "shy Trump" voters didn't want to admit their support to pollsters.

In the meantime, news organizations must reckon with the missteps.

But the markets were panicked by the Trump victory, with London's FTSE 100 Index dropping as much as 2% on opening.

Democrats will now begin a long process of soul searching.
