Republican Donald Trump is set to become the 45th president of the United States of America with official numbers showing an insurmountable lead against Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
Hours before it was made official, supporters from both sides were giving each other hell on social media and mostly Twitter was filled with worries of what will happen to the U.S.A. if and when Trump finally takes over.
“We owe (Hillary Clinton) a very major debt of gratitude to her for her service to our country,” Trump said in his post-victory speech via CNN.
“I say it is time for us to come together as one united people. I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be president for all Americans.”
Donald Trump’s win over Hillary Clinton is considered one of the major upsets in US politics history.
Here are some of the top tweets, some funny, some sad, some in denial of the impending Trump presidency.
