Trump cruises to electoral college victory
There were many protesters but few faithless electors as Donald Trump won the electoral college vote on Monday—ensuring that the billionaire will become America's 45th president. An effort by anti-Trump forces to persuade Republican electors to abandon the president-elect came to practically nothing, and the process unfolded largely according to its traditions. Even one of Donald Trump's fiercest Republican rivals, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, said it was time to get behind the president-elect. "We did it!" Trump tweeted on Monday evening.
