New Delhi: Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton addressed her supporters in New York on Wednesday after her defeat in elections.

In her concession speech, Hillary thanked all her supporters, especially women of the United States of America.

“To everyone who sent us contribution, thank you all,” Hillary Clinton said.

Hillary Clinton congratulated Donald Trump and offered to work with him on behalf of the country. She said Donald Trump is going to be the President of India and Democrats owe him an open mind and a chance to lead.

“Donald Trump is going to be our President and we owe him an open mind and a chance to lead,” Hillary Clinton told her supporters.

Praising Donald Trump, Hillary said, “Our responsibility as citizens is to keep doing our part to build a better, stronger and fairer America we seek. And I know you’ll.”

The maverick outsider Donald Trump stunned the world by winning the US Presidency, the most powerful global job, as voters revolted against a smug, condescending establishment, rejecting Hillary Clinton – seen as the face of the status quo.

His victory plunged the nation and the world into an abyss of uncertainty.

At his victory rally Wednesday morning, Trump called for national reconciliation, saying: “It is time for us to come together as one united people.”
