As he basked in his victory on Nov. 9, Donald Trump made his first promise as president elect. After thanking Hillary Clinton for her ‘years of service,’ Donald swore he would work with all Americans – even those who didn’t vote for him – to bring the country together. Click to watch.
“Thank you very much,” Donald, 70, said as he was welcomed by his overjoyed supporters after winning the 2016 Presidential election. After thanking Hillary, 69, for her “service to our country,” he said that “now it’s time to bind the wound of divisions.”
“To all Republicans and Democrats and Independents, I say it’s time to come together as one united people.” Donald then pledged to “every citizen of our land that I will be President for all Americans.” Donald even said he was “reaching out” to non-supporters to work together and unify a country that had been deeply divided.
So ends a long and bitter campaign that will definitely go down in history. When Hillary Clinton, 69, announced her official presidential campaign in Apr. 2015, who knew it would end like this? “Everyday Americans need a champion and I want to be that champion,” she tweeted on the day she threw her hat into the race. She would go on to defeat Bernie Sanders, 74, to become the first female nominee for a major U.S. political party, shattering a glass ceiling by promising to make America “stronger together.”

Hillary’s announcement was downright humble compared to how Donald Trump announced his campaign. In speech that saw the former reality television host infamously call Mexican immigrants “rapists” and “drug dealers,” Donald began a bewildering campaign. Not only would he defeat candidates like Senators Ted Cruz, 45, and Marco Rubio, 45, he would secure the Republican Party’s nominee!
From there, the two butted heads in a campaign that got downright nasty. Donald threatened to lock Hillary up during a debate, days after his “grab [women] by the p*ssy” tape leaked. Hillary was cleared of any email wrongdoing while woman after woman came forth to accuse Donald of sexual assault.
Despite this, America decided they were ready to “Make America Great Again,” and chose him to be the next president. Now, as it appears from Donald’s victory speech, he’s ready to work with all Americans and try to bring them together as one.
Are you glad with the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election, HollywoodLifers? Did you want Donald to win?
