Hillary Clinton delivered a compassionate concession speech. A speech with a tone that many pundits are saying she should have had much earlier. Clinton made the concession speech at a New York hotel in Manhattan, where she attempted to hide her disappointment.
I hope that he will be a successful president for all Americans,” “I still believe in American, and I always will,” Clinton said.
Just prior to giving her concession speech, Clinton called president-elect Donald Trump, congratulating him on becoming the 45th president.
Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and a chance to lead,” “This is not the outcome that we wanted and we worked so hard for, and I am sorry that we did not win this election.”
Clinton showed her disappointment for not making the historic achievement, which she has attempted twice, losing both presidential campaigns. This election, despite pollsters and pundits calling it early for Clinton, Trump was declared the president-elect. Clinton’s loss comes after major polls in battleground states including Pennsylvania and Michigan, showed her leading.
Then he broke the blue wall of Wisconsin, which was as much about Speaker Paul Ryan and Governor Scott Walker’s efforts, as Trump. Despite opposition by John Kasich, Trump took Ohio. He took North Carolina.
All those in the media and the intellectuals who said Trump never would, are eating a bit of humility laced crow today. What we all learned is that Americans are done with the political class, the lack of jobs, a stagnant economy, working harder and making less than they did in the mid-1990s, and political correctness.
