The United States presidential election, 2016 took place on Tuesday, 8 November 2016[1][2] when Republican Donald Trump defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton by 290 electoral college votes to 228, becoming the 45th President of the United States.[3]

Nominations

Republican

Businessman and reality television personality Donald Trump became the Republican Party's presidential nominee on 19 July 2016, after defeating Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Ohio Governor John Kasich, Florida Senator Marco Rubio and several other candidates in the Republican primary elections.[4]

On 14 July 2016, several major media outlets reported that Trump had selected Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate. Trump confirmed these reports and made the announcement two days later in New York.[5][6][7][8][9] On July 19, the second night of the Republican National Convention, Pence won the Republican vice presidential nomination by acclamation.[10]

Democrat

Former Secretary of State and New York Senator Hillary Clinton became the Democratic Party's presidential nominee on 26 July 2016 after defeating Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. On July 22, three days before the start of the Democratic National Convention, the Clinton campaign announced that Virginia Senator Tim Kaine had been selected as her running mate.

Others

Two other candidates contested the election: the Libertarian Party nominee, former Governor of New Mexico Gary Johnson; and the Green Party nominee Jill Stein.[11][12] They were marginalised by the commercially-controlled media.

Big Data

Project Censored reported in October 2017 that "right-wing computer scientist and hedge-fund billionaire Robert Mercer was the top donor to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, contributing $13.5 million and helping lay the groundwork for what is now called the Trump Revolution. Mercer also funded Cambridge Analytica, a data analytics company that specializes in “election management strategies” and using microtargeting."[13]

Outcome

Jeff Schechtman has written that "the election and its aftermath has deepened a culture of fear in the United States."[14]
