New York [U.S.], Nov. 9 (ANI): The Indian-Americans have expressed their delight on the election of Republican candidate Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States.

"Satisfied and happy that outcome of all the efforts was good," said Shalab Kumar, Indian-American industrialist.

Talking about the relationship between India and the United States post Trump's victory, Kumar said the first effort should be to remove trade barriers so that both nations benefit.

Former Miss India Manasvi Mamgai, who campaigned for Trump, said: "Happy that our efforts have finally paid off, we cannot be happier.'

Trump was today elected as the 45th president of the United States.

Trump's surprising performance at the polls ended Hillary Clinton's quest to make history as the first female president of the United States.
