This election has been particularly contentious. Over the past few weeks, Trump has raised suspicions of a rigged election and voter fraud.
But with the call that he won, it appears Trump has dropped those concerns.
At this time, its unclear if democratic nominee Hillary Clinton will contest the results of the election.
This result was very much unexpected, as Clinton had been beating Trump in the polls for several weeks.

A dozen women have accused him of assault after a disturbing video was released where he said he grabs women by the pussy.
