Hillary Clinton never took the stage on election night at the Javits Center in New York, where she planned to declare its giant glass ceiling had been symbolically shattered. Instead, hours later she stood solemnly alongside Bill Clinton and running mate Tim Kaine at a nearby hotel, where she privately conceded the election.
On Wednesday morning, she offered some words of inspiration to the millions who supported her.
“I congratulated Donald Trump and offered to work with him,” Clinton said. “I hope he will be a successful president for all Americans.”
