The world was shocked Wednesday to learn that businessman Donald Trump was elected the next president of the United States over longtime politician Hillary Clinton.
Projections predicting a Clinton win turned to “too close to call” late Tuesday, before news outlets started to report Trump’s victory overnight.

European leaders said the tumultuous impact of Brexit in Europe just months ago paled in comparison to the “disaster” the election outcome would lead to.
