Last night, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 Presidential Election to GOP nominee Donald Trump. Though she called to concede the election to Trump last night, this will be the first time she will publicly address her supporters following the defeat. Clinton was expected to give a speech last night, but campaign manager John Podesta told an assembled crowd to wait until morning.
“Well folks, I know we’ve been here a long time,” he said, “and I know it’s been a long night and I know it’s been a long campaign. But I know we can wait a little longer. We will have more to say tomorrow.”
Donald Trump defeated the first female nominee for President last night in a stunning upset, garnering over 279 electoral votes and expected to gain even more as more ballots come in. Trump won key swing states in Florida, Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin to ensure his victory. He defied all the early polls that showed Clinton with a consistent lead, and defied skeptics and doubters everywhere who believed that he could not win. The former reality TV star is 70 years old.
Clinton is expected to take the stage at 10:30 a.m. ET. Watch the speech via ABC News below.
