Do not sit still. Do not weep. MOVE. We are not a nation that will let HATE lead us.

Some didn't like Bush. Some didn't like Obama. But this is different. Forget dislike. Many are genuinely fearful now. This is new.

America just elected a man who said to "grab em by the pussy" over the first female president. This is really sad.

We are so sad to see these tweets and to know how much the hearts of Americans all across the country are breaking. Hillary’s defeat is a devastating loss for those who were hoping that the the Democratic nominee would become our first female president.
As we previously reported, Hillary called Donald to officially concede the election during the early hours of Nov. 9. Thousands of supporters at her campaign party in NYC’s Javits Center were in tears when her campaign manager, John Podesta, addressed the crowd to let them know Hillary would not be speaking to the crowd on election night. However, those who are still itching to hear from the Democratic nominee will get their wish, as she’s expected to publicly give her concession speech later in the day.
Following his victory, Donald vowed to be a President to “all Americans,” and even thanked Hillary for a hard-fought election. He will officially begin his term as president on Inauguration Day, January 20.
