It's been a historic night for international politics, with Hilary Clinton conceding the American Presidency to Donald Trump over the course of the night.
We take a look at the East Anglian reaction to the news, including the thoughts of Norfolk's Great British Bake Off finalist Kate Barmby, Harry Potter star and UEA student Rohan Gotobed, and sports presenter Jake Humphrey.
Matt Wilkins, Old Buckenham Airfield manager has American family and will be spending Thanksgiving in the United States.
He said: 'It always needs to be remembered that there is a democracy. No matter what, the country has voted and I think it could bode well for Britain.
'It appears Americans think he (Trump) offers more. We will just have to hope that America is successful. As far as I am concerned, America has always been great.'
