Hillary Clinton Bows Out as Paul Ryan Praises Trump as Unifying Force
There’s no ambiguity here. “We must accept this result,” Hillary Clinton declared in her belated concession speech. Looking grim but determined, the defeated Democratic candidate spoke about the need to defend equality and non-discrimination, emphasizing that “our nation is more deeply divided than we thought.” President Obama echoed her sentiments in a later statement, but concluded that “we’re all on the same team.” Meanwhile, Paul Ryan gave a press conference confirming his now-dominant party’s commitment to Donald Trump. He said Trump’s win proves the businessman “just earned a mandate”, and nodded to GOP plans to attack a “collapsing” Obamacare.
