US Election: A Trump Win Is Increasingly Likely
No no no no no no no.
It’s looking like Donald Trump could be the next US president. Here’s how.
The ABC is currently reporting that the share market is indicating that a Trump win is likely, however it’s still too close to call.
Trump has captured crucial victories over Hilary Clinton in Florida and Ohio, showing remarkable strength in two of the nation’s most fiercely fought battleground states.
Clinton carried Virginia and Colorado. Her campaign had expected easy victories there, but the states took on new urgency as Trump picked up botes elsewhere.
The uncertainty sent Dow futures and Asian markets tumbling, reflecting investor concern over what a Trump presidency might mean for the economy and trade.
As Clinton’s team anxiously waited for results to roll in, the candidate tweeted to supporters, “Whatever happens tonight, thank you for everything.”
