‘This is painful, and it will be for a long time,’ Clinton says

NEW YORK — Hillary Clinton saw a rancorous campaign through to its bitter end on Wednesday, conceding the presidency to a man she had called unfit for the office and a threat to the fabric of the country. In defeat, Clinton turned one of her central attacks on Donald Trump into a charge for the presidency she was denied, urging the next president and her disheartened supporters to respect the peaceful transfer of power. “We have seen that our nation is more deeply divided than we thought,” Clinton said hours after losing a presidential election she had been widely seen as sure to win. “But I still believe in America, and I always will. And if you do, then we must accept this result and then look to the future.”
