Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton vowed Wednesday to work with President-elect Donald Trump, and urged fellow Democrats to allow him the chance to lead the deeply-divided country.
“Last night, I congratulated Trump and offered to work with him on behalf of our country,” the defeated candidate told supporters, holding back tears in her first public remarks since the Republican’s upset victory. “I hope that he will be a successful president for all Americans.”
“We have seen that our nation is more deeply-divided than we thought,” she said. “We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead.” Trump will become the 45th US president after a stunning victory.
Clinton urged her supporters to respect the election result. And addressing the nation last night, outgoing President Barack Obama termed Clinton’s candidacy as historic. -AFP & BBC
