Republican Donald Trump wins the race against his rival Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential race in the US.

Trump surpassed the necessary 270 votes to clinch the presidency.

Speaking from Clinton's New York rally centre, Al Arabiya's Talal AlHaj reported a depressing mood, with some reporters seeing leaving the building an hour before Trump clinched the win.

Trump rode an astonishing wave of support from voters seeking change and willing to accept a candidate loose with facts and accused of sexual misconduct. Trump struck a populist tone and placed a hardline immigration stance at his campaign's heart.
