Hillary Clinton addressed her supporters and campaign workers in New York on Wednesday, and has conceded the presidential race, and said that the Constitution requires a peaceful transfer of power. "Our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power and we don't just respect that, we cherish it. It also enshrines other things: the rule of law, the principle that we are equal in rights and dignity, freedom of worship and expression.

We cherish and respect these values too and we must defend them." she said. Millions of Americans thought that they were going to witness the history that they had envisioned: to see Hillary Clinton as the first female president of the United States. But much to their dismay and disappointment, it was not to be. After months of campaigning, debates, investigations and political mudslinging, the presidential race is finally over with not so good news for the Democrats.

The Democratic nominee expressed regret

In her emotional concession speech, Clinton apologized to her supporters who already experienced fear and anxiety about Donald's Trump's victory. "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." she said. Although she admitted that her defeat was indeed painful, Clinton remained composed and spoke respectfully and with dignity.

She highlighted her achievements as a way of being optimistic and looking at the bright side, and offered the following words of encouragement: "I know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling, but someday, someone will, and hopefully sooner than we might think right now."
