Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Wednesday conceded her election loss to Republican Donald Trump and said she offered to work with the president-elect. “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 told supporters and staff at a Manhattan hotel.

An emotional Clinton told her supporter that “Donald Trump is our president and we owe him an open mind and a chance to lead.” “I know how disappointed you feel because I feel it too, this is painful and it will be for a long time,” said Clinton adding “Our responsibility as citizens is to keep doing our part to build better, stronger, fairer America we seek. And I know you’ll.”

The 69-year-old former secretary of state and the First lady was aiming to become the first woman president in the country’s history, but fell short. After the results were out, Clinton called her Trump in the wee hours to concede defeat.

In his victory speech, Trump said he also congratulated Clinton and her family on a very, very hard-fought campaign.

“I mean, she fought very hard,” he said. “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.”

        Captain America star Chris Evans called Trump’s victory embarring. “This is an embarring night for America. We’ve let a hatemonger lead our great nation. We’ve let a bully set our course. I’m devastated. Many felt the same way when a m murderer was elected to lead another great democratic nation for which the great forefathers gave supreme sacrifices with their and their families' lives.
