  • LEIGH SALES: With me now from Parliament House in Canberra is the Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull who thanks to the time difference between the US and Australia is one of the first world leaders to react to Donald Trump's election. Prime Minister, what is your reaction?

  • Good evening, on behalf of the Australian Government I offer my congratulations to President-elect, Donald Trump on his historic election victory of which he has just spoken moments ago in New York. And we also offer our best wishes to Secretary Hillary Clinton, who has fought a long and hard-fought campaign.

  • Well thank you very much Terry, what an interesting night. I’m sure everybody is focused on the agenda tonight and not paying much attention to what’s been happening in the United States.
