000Donald Trump, the Republican businessman who challenged the political status quo with promises to turn Washington upside down, scored a stunning upset Tuesday to win election as the nation's 45th president.

Choosing the bombastic billionaire who centered his campaign on "draining the swamp" over establishment politician Hillary Clinton, voters signaled a desire to shake up Washington at a time when the country is experiencing anemic economic growth, questions about its place on the global stage and deeply conflicting visions of its future.

0001In running the most unorthodox race for the White House the nation has seen, the 70-year-old real estate developer and realty television star expanded the electoral map, winning battleground states that polls had given to Clinton.

Maryland, which has voted Democratic in every presidential election since 1992, went heavily for Clinton. Democrats also won the state's open seat in the U.S. Senate, seven of eight House seats and the Baltimore mayoral and City Council races.

Elsewhere, Republicans had a far better night than expected. Trump won the key states of Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and North Carolina, and the GOP retained control of the House and Senate.

Donald Trump stunned America and the world, defeating Hillary Clinton in the race to become the 45th president of the United States.

In the end, voters made their decisions based on the perceived trustworthiness of two historically unpopular candidates. Sixty percent of voters said Clinton is not honest or trustworthy, exit polls showed. Sixty-five percent felt that way about Trump.
