Donald Trump, 70, was elected as the 45th President of the United States after one of the most mind-blowing turnarounds the nation has ever seen.

And I will give you a very, very good and definitive answer the next time we do 60 Minutes together.” Donald pulled off the upset after he winning the battleground states of Florida, North Carolina and Ohio.

Donald also revealed how the concession call went. “[I]t was a lovely call and it was a tough call for her. I can imagine. Tougher for her than it would have been for me. I mean, for me, it would have been very, very difficult. She just said, ‘Congratulations, Donald, well done.’”
The businessman-turned-politician also received a call from former President Bill Clinton on Nov. 10 and Donald said he couldn’t “have been more gracious.” He added, “Bill said it was an amazing run. One of the most amazing he’s ever seen.
