Republican President-elect Donald Trump has officially been confirmed as the 45th President of the United States of America after his victory was established by the required vote in the Electoral College.
Trump’s victory was rubber stamped and he has been confirmed as America’s 45th President in a usual routine selection via votes cast by the institution’s 538 electors, generally chosen by state parties.
Trump, who is set to take office on Jan. 20, garnered more than the 270 electoral votes required to win, even as at least half a dozen U.S. electors broke with tradition to vote against their own state’s directives, the largest number of “faithless electors” seen in more than a century.
His emergence has now dashed a long-shot push by a small movement of detractors to try to block him from gaining the White House.
