US President Barack Obama has called Republican Donald Trump to congratulate him on securing the election victory, the White House said in a statement on Wednesday.

Obama also invited Trump to visit the White House on Thursday to discuss the details of the power transition.

"Ensuring a smooth transition of power is one of the top priorities the president identified at the beginning of the year and a meeting with the president-elect is the next step," the statement said.

On Election Day, November 8, United States citizens cast their ballots and elected their 45th US President, Donald J. Trump.

By securing more than the needed 270 electoral votes, Trump, the Republican candidate clinched his presidential victory.

The election outcome was a spectacular culmination to a heated Presidential race between the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate, Donald Trump.

The former First Lady conceded to her rival by phone once the needed votes were in.
