Donald John Trump has been projected as the winner of the presidential election, according to The Associated Press, after election returns showed that Trump had won stunning come-from-behind victories across a swath of contested states.
Trump, 70, will be the 45th president of the United States. A real-estate developer and former reality-TV star, Trump is the first person to win the presidency without having previously held public office or served in the U.S. military.
Mike Pence, 57, will be vice president. Pence was a longtime member of the House of Representatives and is now the Republican governor of Indiana.
