US President Donald Trump has claimed his bid to hold on to the presidency is looking “really good” across the country.
Despite early suggestions to the contrary, Trump has vowed in an interview on Fox News that he will not “play games” by declaring an early victory if the results are not clear on election night.
WE ARE LOOKING REALLY GOOD ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. THANK YOU!

Voting in all of the key battleground states remains open. The first in-person polls of the US election closed in parts of the Republican strongholds of Indiana and Kentucky at about 10am AEDT. The states straddle time zones.
