Despite the efforts of Democrats and two faithless electors in Texas, Trump is now the 45th President of the United States!
Texas was the last state won by Trump to tally their votes. Which meant they were the state that put Trump over 270 electoral votes in the 2016 Presidential election.
Watch the moment when the final tally was announced:

From the video:
“Our votes for President have been tallied. We have, for President, Donald Trump: 36 votes. For Ron Paul, 1 vote. For John Kasich, 1 vote. By the way, Texas now puts President Trump over the top.”
And the crowd went nuts! Cheers and a standing ovation!
