Clinton tells backers they must accept outcome
NEW YORK (AP) -- Hillary Clinton says America "is more deeply divided than we thought," but she is urging her supporters to accept the outcome of the presidential election.
In a speech conceding the presidency to Republican Donald Trump, Clinton said, "I still believe in America, and I always will."
She noted that "our responsibility as citizens is to keep doing our part to keep building that better, stronger, fairer America."
Clinton says losing the election "is painful, and it will be for a long time." But she said of Trump, "We owe him an open mind and a chance to lead." Clinton says American democracy depends on "peaceful transition of power."
