Trump heads for White House after shock defeat of Clinton


President Barack Obama, who campaigned hard against Trump, telephoned the Republican to congratulate him on his victory and invited him to the White House for a meeting on Thursday, the White House said in a statement. "Ensuring a smooth transition of power is one of the top priorities the President identified at the beginning of the year and a meeting with the President-elect is the next step," the White House said. Worried that a Trump victory could cause economic and global uncertainty, investors were in full flight from risky assets. Despite losing the state-by-state electoral battle that determines the US presidency, Clinton narrowly led Trump in the nationwide popular vote, according to US media tallies. Clinton did not immediately make a concession speech, instead sending campaign chairman John Podesta out to tell her supporters to go home.
