President-Elect Donald Trump preached national unity and vowed to "reclaim our country's destiny," in his victory speech, which was delivered around 3:00 a.m. in New York City. Rival candidate Hillary Clinton had already called Trump to concede, he told the crowd.
Trump complimented Clinton on running a "hard-fought campaign."
"She fought very hard," he said. "Hillary has worked very long and hard over a long period of time, and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country. I mean that very sincerely."
Trump then turned to the business of healing the vast political divide. He promised to be a president for all Americans.
