Election Night: Fears of a Trump Presidency

The night is drawing on as we hit 3:30am UK time and a President Elect Donald. J Trump is looking more and more likely by the minute. Hopefully I will look at this post in a few hours time and feel complete relief but I am not getting my hopes up.

ABC news and CBS have now both called the swing State of Ohio for Donald Trump, the state has predicted the correct result in 28 out of 30 contests. It's not a dead certainty especially due to the unpredictable nature of this election, but it is not looking good for the Clinton campaign.

Meanwhile Florida is a complete nightmare, with the race way too close to call still but looking more likely for Donald Trump at this moment in time.

Latest Trump wins:
Arkansas, Ohio, Louisiana.

Latest Clinton wins:
Virginia, Colorado.

Electoral college as of 3:35am (GMT):
Clinton: 131
Trump: 169

All eyes are still on Nevada, Minnesota North Carolina, Michigan, vital states which are still too close to call.

But the markets are rattled at the thought of Donald Trump hitting the magical 270 figure. The Mexican Peso have fallen to its lowest ever level against the dollar, dropping by 10% in value.
