Donald Trump will be the 45th president of the United States of America.
So, how is he going to Make America Great Again? And how will his election affect the world?
The centrepiece of president-elect Trump’s campaign has been immigration reform.
Central to that — his vow to build a wall along the southern border with Mexico and temporarily closing US borders to all Muslims until we “figure out what the hell is going on”.
Will the wall start going up tomorrow? No.
Mr Trump will need Congress to approve funding for the mammoth project and even then, construction of the wall would face numerous legal obstacles.
Economy and trade
Mr Trump has run largely on his business pedigree — although his opponents rate that as dubious.
He promises to introduce major tax cuts and bring jobs back to America.
How? That remains unclear.
He has inspired millions of disaffected American workers, who agreed with his anti-trade rhetoric.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership, which he previously called “the rape of our country”, is certainly dead.
He has threatened 35 per cent tariffs on American companies who manufacture offshore and a 45 per cent tariff on Chinese imports.
President-elect Trump has been particularly critical of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy, calling it a “complete and total disaster” more than once.
