WATCH: Hillary Clinton Concedes Election To Donald Trump After Hard Fought Campaign

2 min

Hillary Clinton finally conceded the Presidential race to her victorious opponent, Donald J. Trump, earlier today (Wednesday) after losing the hard fought election to Donald Trump.
Trump won a shock victory Tuesday night, defying all polls and handing Hillary another blow to her seemingly never ending quest to enter the White House.
Clinton cancelled a planned victory speech on the night – her supporters left in tears – but reappeared in the hours of the new day to deliver a gracious concession speech.
“Donald Trump is going to be our president,” she said, speaking at the New Yorker hotel in Manhattan. “We owe him an open mind and a chance to lead.”
“To all the women, and especially the young women, who put their faith in this campaign and in me, I want you to know that nothing has made me prouder than to be your champion.” Clinton added, addressing the women who had fought so hard to get the nation’s first female leader.
“I know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling but I know someday someone will and hopefully sooner than we might think right now,” Clinton said.
“And to all the little girls who are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable … and deserving of every chance … to pursue your own dreams.”
“This is painful and it will be for a long time,” she said, “but I want you to remember this, our campaign was never about one person or even one election. It was about the country we love.”
