CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Donald Trump became president-elect Wednesday, in a victory over democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

The results brought mixed feelings to early morning diners at the Waffle House on Highway 17, near the Ashley River Bridges. Art Field, a retired Charlestonian who closely identifies with the GOP, says he went to bed uncertain and woke up to a “big finish” and “good news.”

Nancy, a Waffle House employee, says she was not stunned by the election results. She says America is moving backward after what she calls a progressive eight years of success under the Obama administration.

Trump urged American’s to “come together as one united people” after a deeply divisive campaign, during a victory speech Wednesday morning.

Trump will be inaugurated Jan. 20, 2017.
