Hillary Clinton entered the venue along with her husband Bill Clinton and her daughter Chelsea, with tears rolling down her cheeks and in a shaky voice, she thanked her supporters. Addressing a huge gathering of her staff she said “We must accept the result and look to the future”. Clinton said that she called Donald Trump yesterday and offered to work with him for the country. “This is not the outcome we wanted but I hope Donald Trump will be a successful President”, she added.

Trump’s victory marked a crushing end to Clinton’s second quest to become the first woman president of the US. She also failed in a White House bid in 2008 losing to outgoing President Barack Obama. “Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead,” Clinton, the Democratic nominee in the US Presidential election, said in a concession speech in New York before noon on Wednesday, where she was joined by her husband, former President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea. With a row of American flags in the background, she told supporters her loss was painful “and it will be for a long time.” She also underlined her willingness to work with Trump as he prepares to begin his four-year term on January 20 next year.

1. I am sorry that we were not successful. American dream is big enough for everyone. I congratulate Donald Trump and hope he will be a successful President for the nation.

2. This defeat is painful and will be for a long time. Our campaign was not about one person. It was for the entire country.

3. We cherish peaceful transfer of power. And we must defend US values.

4. I have had successes and I have had setbacks. Some have really hurt, like this one but remember fighting for what is right is worth it.


5. For all women, particularly young women, nothing has made me more prouder than to be your champion.

6. I know we have not shattered that glass ceiling, but someone will do so soon.

7. I am grateful for the country and what it has given to me. I believe our best days are still ahead of us.

8. Let us not grow weary, let us not lose heart.

Hillary Clinton, Wednesday lost the US presidential elections to Republican candidate, Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton’s election event not very far from Donald Trump’s victory party saw disappointed supporters who were desperately waiting to see Hillary Clinton become the first ever woman president. Clinton cancelled her concession speech overnight and instead asked her campaign chairman John Podesta and other supporters to go home. The democratic nominee however, did call Donald Trump and wished him on his victory.

Clinton went on social networking site Twitter to extend her congratulations to Republican nominee and President elect Donald trump on his victory. In a series of tweets that followed, Clinton thanked President Barack Obama, First LAdy Michelle Obama and Senator Tim Caine for their unwavering support.

Earlier in the day, the Democratic nominee posted a picture of herself with a young girl saying that it doesn’t matter what happens on the results night. People pointed out that Hillary Clinton’s image represented the role-model young American women today need but after losing the elections, the image stands for the role model that let the young women down.


According to TV reports, there was an atmosphere of sadness at the White House. Although Barack Obama graciously called Donald Trump for his victory and invited him over for talks, it cannot be ignored that President Obama and the first lady, Michelle Obama had openly endorsed for Hillary Clinton as the President.
