After her defeat in the presidential election, Hillary Clinton delivered her concession speech Wednesday morning, speaking from the New Yorker Hotel’s Grand Ballroom in New York City.
Clinton called to congratulate Republican winner Donald Trump late Tuesday night, but was reportedly too upset to address her supporters at the Jacob Javits Center after her loss.
Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta did finally come out to briefly speak to her supporters Tuesday night, telling them to all go home and get some sleep and that they would have more to say after the votes were counted. “I have to say this tonight: goodnight,” Podesta said. “We will be back, and we will have more to say. Let’s get those votes counted, and let’s bring this home.”
In her concession speech, Clinton said she offered to work with Trump on behalf of our country. “I hope he will be a successful president for all Americans,” she stated.
“Donald Trump is going to be our president – we owe him an open mind and the chance to lead,” she added.
In Trump’s victory speech, he generously praised Clinton for her “service to our country” and called for Americans to unite and work together.
