Americans are also hoping their own country 'rests in peace' after Trump's shock win

Donald Trump will be named the next US President today after passing  270 electoral votes.

And the world is already mourning the 'death' of the United States.

Thousands of people are taking to Twitter with the hashtag #RIPUSA to express their shock at Trump's shock win.

One thing everyone can agree on is that history was definitely made yesterday.

Here are just some of the reactions as the world wakes up to the news.

The 'series finale'

This is it yall, the series finale of America. It was nice to know you. 

"It's over"

It's over. I can't believe Trump will become our president. 

US 'in flames'

How people will find the US when they wake up to see that Donald Trump won the election  

"He's not my President"

Others compared Michelle Obama to Melania Trump

Am truly a disappointed woman.From  to ? Really  ?You've disappointed the world.  

One person even noted a 9/11 similarity

"Jesus will be here"

Well, if you're looking for me, i'll be somewhere repenting... cos i'm damn sure Jesus will be here in a few hours... 

"Impending apocalypse"

Actual conversation I had to have with my sister tonight. What is happening?! We had hope and promise for 8 years. 

"Can't believe it"


The New York Times and the bookmakers are predicting Republican candidate Trump will win the election - having rated his chances at just 20% when the first polls closed

Hillary Clinton went into election day with a lead in the polls, but confidence in her becoming America's first female President rapidly disappeared as results started coming in.
Trump has won key swing states including Ohio, North Carolina and Florida to move toward the 270 electoral votes needed to claim the White House.

The New York Times began predicting Trump would win the election at around 2.45am - having rated his chances at just 20% when the first polls closed.
