Share via Email Donald Trump: Thank you, thank you very much, everyone. Sorry to keep you waiting, complicated business. Thank you very much. I mean she, she fought very hard. Hillary has worked very long and very 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 began his victory speech in a vastly different register from his stump speeches of the past eight months. Gone were the calls for a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton, or any mention of supposed criminality or the FBI, which twice cleared Clinton of intentional or criminal wrongdoing in her use of a private email server.
Instead, Trump struck the most moderate tone of his entire campaign: To all Republicans and Democrats and independents across this nation, I say it is time for us to get together as one united people. I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be president for all Americans, and this is so important to me.

The movement Trump has urged to the polls is deeply at odds with tens of millions of voters who like Barack Obama, and exposed divides not only along racial lines but those of education, inequality and simple geography.
Democrats were unable to capitalize on the legacy of a popular president, and Republican leaders succeeded by letting revolt spread within their own ranks and capitalizing on the dysfunction of Washington in general. Every single American will have the opportunity to realize his or her potential.
The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. We are going to fix our inner cities, and rebuild our highways, bridges, tunnels, airports, schools, hospitals. And we will put millions of our people to work as we rebuild it. We will embark upon a project of national growth and renewal.
We will call upon the best and brightest to call upon their tremendous talent for the benefit of all. We have a great economic plan.
We will build … and have the strongest economy of anywhere in the world. We will get along with all other nations willing to get along with us … great, great relationships.Nov 09, · Donald Trump delivered this victory speech at Manhattan's Hilton Midtown hotel after winning the election to become the 45h President of the United States.
