Trump secures victory in Electoral College

Donald Trump sealed his presidential win, with the official counting of the electoral votes… making him the 45th president of the United States.

Trump easily passed the 270 threshold Monday afternoon, securing 304 electoral votes to Hillary Clinton’s 227. Seven “faithless” electors voted for other candidates, costing Trump two votes and Clinton four.

The Electoral College results will be officially certified January 6th by Vice President Joe Biden during a joint session of Congress. Trump will be inaugurated on January 20th.
