I'm Reuters reporter Mia Womersley at the US Embassy in central London, where it really has been an extraordinary evening.
We began the night with hamburgers aplenty, live DJs and a free-flowing bar, but over time, that was converted into shock, disbelief and concern.>> I can't help but despair at the whole state of things, really.

>> Everything Trump espouses is hateful and against humanity. He's not for people.>> I just think mainly his views as a person, they shouldn't be promoted. I think if he gets to be in that powerful seat, people will think, it's okay, I can be against women because he is, and he's the most powerful man in the world.
>> But for those championing the Republican, it's all about going back to basics.>> I think Trump is great for the country and for the world because it allows us to have a honest discussion and debate about the merits of nationalist policies and a real debate on globalist policies.
