The world reacts to Donald Trump's victory

Billionaire Republican Donald Trump has been elected the 45th President of the USA, with the world closely monitoring the race to the White House - and the fallout from the shock result.

After Trump's victory was announced, social media lit up with those both for and against Trump making their views known.

Among those, staunch Hillary Clinton supporters Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. Comedian Seth McFarlane, the man behind popular animated show Family Guy, also took a swipe at the man who will lead the US for at least the next four years.
