How world media covered news of Trump’s triumph
The Huffington Post declared “Mourning in America” while The New Yoker simply called it an “American Tragedy.”
With different majority of media outlets worldwide having endorsed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump’s victory shocked not just the world – but the media too.
Most of the polls were wrong and early predictions of a Hillary Clinton victory proved very wide of the mark.
After Mrs Clinton called him to concede, Trump told his supporters: “I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be a president for all Americans, this is so important to me.”
Media outlets across the world reacted differently and here are some of them:
