The race to be the next President of the United States is coming to a close as Tuesday sees the end of the hard fought election.
Both Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump have been visiting key swing states in order to persuade undecided voters to put an “X” next to their name on election day.
As one of the most fiercely contested elections in recent history, the outcome is likely to welcomed with either happiness or anger depending on the political side.
The two candidates have had their various issues throughout the campaign period, with questions raised about Trump’s conduct around women and Hilary’s use of private emails.
