NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Donald Trump (R) defeated Hillary Clinton (D) to capture the office of the President of the United States on Tuesday.
"Last night I congratulated Donald Trump and offered to work with him on behalf of our country, I hope that he will be a successful president for all Americans," Clinton said during her concession speech in NYC on Wednesday, aired on BloombergTV.
While it is obviously not the outcome Clinton imagined, she feels a tremendous amount of pride in her campaign and supporters.
"I'm sorry that we did not win this election for the values we share and the vision we hold for our country. But, I feel pride and gratitude for this wonderful campaign we built together," she said.
Her campaign support represented the "best" of America, and she said that being their candidate was one of the greatest honors of her life.
"I know how disappointed you feel because I feel it too, and so do tens of millions of Americans who invested their hopes and dreams into this effort," Clinton stated.
While the loss is painful, she takes solace in the goals her campaign fought to accomplish.
"I want you to remember this; our campaign was never about one person or even one election. It was about the country we love and building an America that's hopeful, inclusive, and big-hearted," Clinton said.
Although she ultimately lost the presidency, Clinton's faith in America remains unwavering.
"I still believe in America and I always will, and if you do, then we must accept this result then look to the future. Donald Trump is going to be our president; we owe him an open mind and the chance to lead," Clinton said. "Never stop believing that fighting for what's right, is worth it."
