The U.S. Presidential Election is officially over.
Last night, at approximately 2am EST, it was announced that Republican candidate Donald J. Trump won, meaning that when he is inaugurated in January he will become the 45th president of the United States.
Whether you’re American or not, this election impacts the entire world, which is why the shock of this major upset was even felt right here in Montreal.
From marriage proposals to feeling thankful to be Canadian, we’ve compiled a list of tweets from Montrealers that epitomizes how our city feels about Donald Trump’s big win.

This is how Obama's story ends.
A historic win.
Faces unprecedented opposition but moved U.S. forward.
It will all be erased now😔#Election

Almost all ballots have been counted. Trump won the #election even though he got ~125,000 *less* votes than Clinton. Let that sink in.
