Hillary Clinton Concession Speech Highlights
Hillary Clinton's Message to Little Girls: "Never Doubt That You Are Valuable and Powerful and Deserving"
Hillary Clinton delivered her concession speech in New York City on Wednesday morning, congratulating Donald Trump and wishing him a successfully presidency.
"I'm sorry that we did not win this election," she said. "But I feel pride and grateful for this wonderful campaign that we build together."
"I know how disappointed you feel because I feel it too," she continued. "This is painful, and it will be for a long time."
Clinton, the predicted winner of the presidential election, was poised to make history as the first woman president in the nation's history. She ran on an agenda that put women's rights at the front and center of her platform, proposing paid family leave for men and women, raising the minimum wage, and supporting Planned Parenthood and abortion rights. Her opponent, Donald Trump, boasted about sexually assaulting women and has been accused of sexually assaulting over a dozen women, and proposed racist and xenophobic policies like stop-and-frisk and a ban on Muslims from entering the United States.
"We have seen that our nation is more deeply divided than we thought. But I still believe in america and I always will," Clinton said. "Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and a chance to lead." Clinton mentioned that she offered to work with Trump in his administration.
"This loss hurts," Clinton said. "But please, never stop believing that fighting for what's right is worth it."
She also had a special message for women and girls inspired by her. "We have still not shattered that higher and hardest glass ceiling. But hopefully someone will, and someday sooner than we might think," she said. "And to all the little girls who are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and chieve your own dreams."
"Our best days are still ahead of us," Clinton said.
