“The first thing I’m going to do is tell you that if I’m elected president, I’m accepting no salary, OK?” Trump said. “That’s no big deal for me.”

Donald Trump Delivered the Victory Speech After His Victory, Check Out the Video

Donald Trump Delivered the Victory Speech After His Victory, Check Out the Video

Republican Candidate Donald Trump claimed victory in the presidential election against all odds, polls, and projections on Tuesday. After his victory been announced, Trump delivered a speech at the Hilton Hotel in New York City on Tuesday to a cheering crowd of supporters.

Although the victory of Donald Trump was an unexpected outcome for the Republican candidate, who beat out not only a stacked GOP primary field but also an even more formidable opponent in Hillary Clinton.

The same Hilary Clinton, who was consistently ahead of him in the polls up and was in a much stronger position on the electoral map. Also, not to mention the fact that Trump has been mired in scandals and gaffes throughout the election.

More than a dozen women have accused him of sexual assault after a hot mic tape revealed him bragging about “grabbing” women by the genitals; he has made vague insinuations connecting President Obama and Clinton to terrorist groups; he led a campaign built on wild inaccuracies and vague to nonexistent policy proposals; and he built his campaign on divisive anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim rhetoric, garnering even the support of white nationalists.

Despite all this, however, Trump managed to strike a chord with the American people as an unorthodox candidate without a political background, selling a call for a Southern border wall, a temporary ban on Muslim immigrants, and his strong opposition to trade deals, among his other bombastic talking points.

All the worry over Trump’s possible refusal to concede the election is now moot. He is the one who got to accept Clinton’s concession.

Trump started his speech by thanking all his supporters and also he appreciated Hilary Clinton for a hard fought contest.

He said that “Thank you. Thank you very much, everyone. Sorry to keep you waiting. Complicated business, complicated. Thank you very much.

I’ve just received a call from Secretary Clinton. She congratulated us. It’s about us. On our victory, and I congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard-fought campaign.

I mean, she fought very hard. Hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time, and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country.”

In a narrowly fought contest to become the successor of Barack Obama, Trump beats Hillary with a considerable margin and breaks the dream of Hilary to become the next United States President.

Clinton’s dream to make history as the first female president was thwarted by the Republican nominee’s breathtaking performance at the polls. He was carried to victory by voters fed up with the political system and mistrustful of Clinton, a former first lady, senator and secretary of state.

Trump, a 70-year-old celebrity businessman who had never before run for office, is poised to become the oldest president ever elected to a first term. Also he created history by becoming the only president who has no experience into handling the public office or any experience in politics.

After running a divisive campaign, Trump sounded a magnanimous note of reconciliation as he claimed victory shortly before 3 a.m. Wednesday. He faced many allegations during his campaign of being a racist, disrespectful to women, having hatred for muslims and tons more.

But despite all these odds, Trump emerged as the ultimate winner and  will join the White House from January next year.
