Donald Trump won the general elections 2016 and is set to be the next President of the United States of America.

"I have just received a call from Secretary Clinton. She congratulated us on our victory and I congratulated her on a very hard fought campaign," he said in his victory speech in New York. "Hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service."

"It is time for us to come together as one united people. I pledge to every citizen in our great land that I will be a president for all Americans. This is so important to me," Trump said.

The Senate and the House were also won by the Republicans for the first time in decades.

Christian leaders expressed their hopes for the future of America.

"We have joined in prayers and watched with keen interest the US elections, it is now over and one person Donald Trump is elected. The parties may be different but the overriding interest is the nation of America. America has a God-given place in the history and affairs of the world," said Ben Kwashi, Archbishop of Jos in the Anglican Church of Nigeria. "We have high hopes that the plight of troubled parts of the world will be priority of foreign policy, we hope that terrorism around the world and especially in Africa will be of concern to America."

"We also hope that freedom of religion and thought will be upheld and seen to be in practised in all democratic nations in the world. America has another chance to show its best in generosity, sacrifice, excellence and leadership in all goodness and faith," Kwashi added.

Trump called on Americans to come together to "bind the wounds of division."

He said that the new government will work to "fix our inner cities and rebuild our highways, bridges, tunnels, airports, schools, hospitals," and rebuild the country's infrastructure.

"As I've said from the beginning, ours was not a campaign but rather an incredible and great movement," he added.

"It is a movement comprised of Americans from all races, religions, backgrounds and beliefs, who want and expect our government to serve the people, and serve the people it will."
