US election result: Trump Deserves A Chance to Lead America – Clinton

0

Hillary Clinton, the defeated presidential candidate, says US President-elect Donald Trump must be given a chance to lead.

Appearing in public for the first time since conceding defeat, the Democrat said she hoped Mr. Trump would be a successful president for all Americans.

“We have seen that our nation is more deeply divided than we thought,” Mrs. Clinton said.
Donald Trump will become the 45th US president after an astounding victory.

He will hold his first transition meeting with outgoing President Barack Obama at the White House on Thursday.

Mr. Obama, who congratulated his successor in a phone call in the early hours of the morning, said it was “no secret” that he and Mr. Trump had pretty significant differences.

“Ultimately we’re all on the same team,” he said, and people had to remember that “we are Americans first, patriots first, we all want what’s best for this country”.

Mr. Obama was heartened by what he heard in Mr. Trump’s remarks last night, he said.
Mrs. Clinton also urged her supporters to respect the election result, saying the constitution enshrines the peaceful transition of power.

“I’m sorry that we did not win this election for the values we share and the vision we hold for our country,” Mrs. Clinton told her supporters in her address in New York.

“We have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling. But some day, someone will,” Mrs. Clinton said, referring to her failure to become the first female US president.

“To all the little girls watching… never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world,” she said.
