Donald John Trump, real estate developer and former reality tv personality, has been elected the 45th President of the United States. He won under the banner of the Republican party; becoming  the first person to win the presidency without having held any public office or served in the U.S. military. He is 70-years old. notes that Trump’s November 8 defeat of former First Lady of the U.S., Hillary Clinton, stunned the predictions of many analysts and has, for now, rattled the financial/stock markets here in the U.S. and around the world.

He has been congratulated by Mrs. Clinton.

Trump vowed during the campaign to undo “all” of the executive orders and legacy of President Barack Obama — especially ObamaCare, which has benefitted the under-insured minorities and poor Whites across America.

He also promised to deport “undocumented” immigrants.

Neither Trump nor Clinton made any mention of Africa during their campaigns and three debates.
