Donald J Trump was elected as the 45th president of the United States of America Wednesday defeating pollster predictions and upsetting the Hillary Clinton campaign, which was expected to have an edge. The election to the world’s most powerful office was followed diligently by most newspapers across the globe. While many criticised Trump’s election to the presidency, others backed it up by solid data that spoke volumes about the rise of the white voter. Trump was able to go past the electoral college half-way mark quite easily by seizing majorities in key swing states like Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Ohio.

Here are some of the front pages:

Trump will be meeting President Barack Obama later Thursday at the White House.
