Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/pi/blink.py", line 1, in <module>
    import RPi.GPIO as GPIO
ImportError: No module named 'RPi.GPIO'

I am using Python (IDLE) V 3.5.3


You didn't mentioned what OS distro you are using. But if you are using Raspbian Stretch, RPi.GPIO is included in default installation of Python 2.7, but it does not seems to be included in Python 3.5 by default, you will probably have to install it either running:

sudo apt-get install python3-rpi.gpio

or if you have pip3 installed,

pip3 install RPi.GPIO
