Melania paired her chic suit with a simple white button-up, and a pair of pointed-toe heels, and she went all out with the glamour for the evening, rocking her trademark smokey eye and peachy-pink lip combination, while her hair was coiffed into loose waves. 

The majority of the Trump women opted to follow in Melania's fashionable footsteps by donning sharp suits for the event, with Ivanka, 39, mirroring her step-mother in a black ensemble, while her younger sibling Tiffany, 27, showed her support for the Republicans by wearing a bold red number.  

Mother-of-two Lara, 38, chose a blue suit with a white turtleneck sweater underneath, as Kimberly, 51, broke with the sartorial suit trend by wearing a dark navy dress. 


The Trumps, who had joined the president for many of his final rallies throughout the week leading up to election day, watched on as he said: 'This is a fraud on the American public, this is an embarrassment to our country, we were getting ready to win this election, frankly we did win this election.'

Trump claimed that a 'very sad group of people is trying to disenfranchise' his voters. 'They can't catch us,' he complained several times, as he rattled off the current set of vote totals. 

Throughout the evening, the President's children showed their support for their father on social media, with Don Jr earlier sharing an Instagram snap of the First Family's elaborate viewing party, posing with his siblings Eric and Ivanka and their children saying: 'In the game. Let's do this.'

Lara also shared a snap with Kimberly, posting the black-and-white photo along with a celebratory emoji. 

Outside the White House chaos erupted as hordes of protesters from various groups and Trump supporters descended upon Black Lives Matter Plaza.

Video footage from Black Lives Matter Plaza shows tensions overflowing into physical altercations as thousands gather to demonstrate despite a heavy presence from Metropolitan police. 

Meanwhile Joe Biden held an election night rally outside the Chase Center Tuesday evening in Wilmington, Delaware before a socially distanced crowd who stayed in their cars.

'It's not my place or Donald Trump's place to declare who has won this election. That's the decision of the American people. I'm optimistic about this outcome and I want to thank every one of you who came out and voted in this election,' Biden said.

But Trump set the stage for a titanic struggle over the millions of ballots which are still to be counted and which might not be fully counted until as late as Friday.   

He said: 'We will win this and as far as I'm concerned we already have won it.

'We'll be going to the U.S. Supreme Court — we want all voting to stop.' 

The outcome of the election had effectively ground to a halt just after midnight with Donald Trump on 213 electoral college votes and Joe Biden on 224, and seven battleground states too close to call.

Biden's failure to land a knockout blow by taking Florida, Ohio or Texas means that the race comes down to Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin – the 'blue wall' which Hillary Clinton lost in 2016.

But it will take days to determine the results from those states, setting the scene for a battle which was headed to the courts.

Shortly after Trump's address Biden was said to have won Arizona and its 11 electoral votes, flipping a critical battleground state. 

The victory by Biden was a huge blow to Trump's chances for reelection. Arizona has backed a Democratic presidential candidate only once in the last 72 years.
