Mr Trump will become the 45th US president on inauguration day on January 20, 2017. He will be sworn into office at 5pm GMT, or 12pm local time.
That's 1 am tomorrow morning here, I think.
I shan't be staying up.

He received more votes than his opponent, Hilary, so therefore HE WON. Therefore he is now President. Should be interesting.
Those causing mayhem in the streets should surely now be jailed for 4 years each. Bad losers. :?

There's actually a big flaw there pal; Hillary won more votes than Trump:

but the nominee system works on a different judgement ...

Very much the same in this country, we'd have about a dozen UKIP members if it was done on PR, and far less SNP

Not quite true, Brian.

She won more votes from the public but he won in more states and thus the majority of the electoral college votes.

That's what I said. I just tried to find it but can't. I know it appeared because it received lots of views and applause from bristle at least.
Mine was actually about Great Britain.
Somebody must have deleted it.
