Donald Trump will be the new president of the United States.
Things started to look dark for Clinton after the initial poll closings, when swing states like Virginia and Pennsylvania didn't come in with the expected victory margin that the former secretary of state was hoping for, though she ultimately won Virginia. In the end, Trump was able to win the necessary 270 electoral votes to become the president-elect after he took Florida, Ohio, North Carolina and Wisconsin. The change in tide of the election caused the Canadian immigration website to crash early Tuesday evening.
While many Republicans and rural conservative voters are celebrating Trump's win, celebrities on Twitter were in utter despair over the election results. Check out some of their tweets below.
