Last Ditch Effort To Deny Donald Trump The White House Crumbles

By Ikenga Chronicles December 20, 2016

The frantic effort to sway last November’s U.S Presidential victory by Republican Billionaire Donald Trump crumbled as the US Electoral College has on Monday certified the president-elect the true winner of the presidential race.

Before the certification by the Electoral College, Electoral College electors were flooded with emails and phone calls urging them not to vote Donald Trump.

The movement to block Trump had fought hard to convince Republican electors to abandon their party’s candidate.

Millions of Americans signed an online petition to that effect, while thousands of anti-Trump protesters gathered at state capitols across the country.

Reacting to his win, Trump promised to “work hard to unite our country and be the president of all Americans”.

“I thank the American people for their overwhelming vote to elect me as their next president of the United States” Trump said in a statement after the result came in.

“With this historic step we can look forward to the bright future ahead. I will work hard to unite our country and be the president of all Americans” he added.

Vice president-elect Mike Pence hailed his boss on Twitter, writing: “Congratulations to @realDonaldTrump; officially elected President of the United States today by the Electoral College.”

He added that he was “honoured & humbled to be officially elected today as the next Vice President of the United States of America” – drawing thousands of “likes” and retweets.
