Well, Clinton also spoke about the election, acknowledging she was “deeply disappointed” in the result.

“I know many of you are deeply disappointed about the results of the election – I am, too, more than I can ever express,” she said.

“But as I said last week, our campaign was never about one person or even one election.

“I know this isn’t easy. I know that over the past week a lot of people have asked themselves whether America is the country we thought it was.

“The divisions laid bare by this election run deep. But please listen to me when I say this: America is worth it. Our children are worth it. Believe in our country, fight for our values and never, ever give up.”
