Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton is currently trailing Republican Party nominee Donald Trump as he is inching closer to the Oval office. Trump surprisingly won key swing states such as Florida, Ohio and North Carolina, denting Clinton’s chances of becoming the first woman Commander-in-Chief. She was initially ahead of Trump, when the first set of votes trickled in. However, Trump clawed his way back and took a commanding lead over her once the key states were called by most US networks. As things stand at the moment, Clinton has won in 17 states and Trump in 23.
