Hillary Clinton gave a speech on Wednesday, conceeding her defeat and the victory of now President-elect Donald Trump.

Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine, introduced her. He praised her passion to help children and families, and said that there was no doubt she would accept the results.

And then came Clinton, speaking to the crowd gathered to hear her words, apologizing right off the bat. “I know you feel disapppointed, bacause I feel it, too, ” admitted Clinton. “It is painful, and will be for a long time.” But she stressed that the campaign was always about more than one person or one election.

Speaking of people of all races, the LGBT community, immigrants and people with disabilities, she urged her supporters to “do all we can to keep advancing causes.” She added that Americans must continue to “do their part by building a better America.”

She thanked POTUS and FLOTUS Barack and Michelle Obama, saying the country owes them an enormous debt of gratitude. She asked that people give Donald Trump “a chance” as president, asking for unity post-election.

 

 

Appealing to young people, she said, “This loss hurts, but never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it.”

“I still believe, more than I ever have, that if we stand together, ” added Clinton. “Our best days are ahead of us.”

Though polls showed she had narrowly won the popular vote, Clinton lost out in the electoral vote, while Trump racked up state after state on his way to victory.

During his victory speech delivered shortly after his win had been announced, Trump broke with his usual campaign rhetoric of slamming Hillary Clinton and hyperbole, instead choosing to congratulate his opponent on her election campaign and telling his raucous audience “we owe her a major debt of gratitude” for her prolonged period of time in civil service.

One of Donald Trump’s in-house detractors, House Speaker Paul Ryan offered his own congratulations to Trump, saying the president-elect “just eearned a mandate” by tapping into the voice and of those in America who have felt ignored for a long time.
