Trump has won key swing states including Ohio, North Carolina and Florida to move toward the 270 electoral votes needed to claim the White House.
The New York Times began predicting Trump would win the election at around 2.45am – having rated his chances at just 20% when the first polls closed.
Meanwhile, Vice President elect Mike Pence has taken to the stage ahead of Donald Trump.
He says “This is a historic night. The American people have spoken and elected their new champion.”
He says it’s hard for him to express the honour he and his family will feel to serve as Vice President.
