🗳Decision 🇺🇸2016: Hillary Clinton Concedes

  |   World News

Hillary Clinton just addressed the country and conceded the election to Donald Trump. She was surrounded by her family and introduced by her running mate Tim Kaine. She thanked everyone for their support and said she was honored to have been the candidate representing them. She hoped that Trump would be a successful President for all Americans and promised to work with him and support him. She said she she believed in America and would accept the result and look to the future. She also took the opportunity to remind Trump of the Constitutional guarantees of rule of law, freedom of speech and religion, and that the American dream extended to all people regardless of race, religion, gender, sexuality or ability. She exhorted Americans to participate in American democracy all the time, not just every 4 years and to never stop believing that fighting for what's right is worth it.

This is perhaps the last public speech that Clinton will give. It brings a 30 year career in public service to a disappointing close.

President Obama will be addressing the country later today.
