US Election 2016: Donald Trump On The Brink Of The Us Presidency
Donald Trump won the key swing states of Florida, North Carolina and Ohio early this morning, giving him a clear path to the White House.
The Republican surpassed expectations and confounded pollsters in Florida, where Hillary Clinton had been expected to win following a surge in the Hispanic vote.
Hillary Clinton’s hopes of a swift victory faded as the Republican picked up a series of states.
Mr Trump’s unexpected success in Florida meant that the US election was likely to come down to a small handful of swing states.
Mrs Clinton managed to win the battlegrounds of Virginia and Colorado, but she needed to take Michigan, Nevada, Iowa and Pennsylvania to have any chance.
Opinion is divided across Asia, with strong support for Clinton in Afghanistan, Indonesia, India, South Korea, Pakistan, Taiwan and Thailand, and equally strong Trump support in the Philippines, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Sri Lanka, Times of Malta reported.
