Final tally: Trump officially wins Michigan as recounts on horizon 01:59

Michigan has certified Donald Trump the winner over Hillary Clinton in Michigan, twenty days after Election Day. 

The final margin separating the two was 10,704 out of the approximately 4.8 million votes cast, or 0.2 percent, the closest presidential race in Michigan in over 75 years. Trump is the first GOP nominee to win Michigan since 1988.

The victory gives him another 16 electoral votes, bringing his total up to 306 electoral votes, compared to 232 for Clinton.

The Green Party’s Jill Stein has said she intends to ask for a recount, and she has until Wednesday to make the request. Mr. Trump, however, has seven days to file his objections to her request.
