We all know that Donald Trump loves Twitter — and he didn’t waste any time after he was officially announced the next President of the United States, to send out his 140 characters! In it, he made a promise to forgotten Smericans. Read his message here!
“Such a beautiful and important evening,” the new President of the United States wrote at 6:36 AM ET on Twitter. “The forgotten man and woman will never be forgotten again. We will all come together as never before.” Additionally, he changed his Twitter bio to read, “President-elect of the United States.”
Of course, the race was a huge upset for Hillary Clinton, who officially conceded via a phone call to Trump.
“I’ve just received a call from Secretary Clinton. She congratulated us on our victory, and I congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard-fought campaign,” Trump said on stage at the New York Hilton around 2:40 AM ET. “Hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time, and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country. I mean that sincerely.”
Such a beautiful and important evening! The forgotten man and woman will never be forgotten again. We will all come together as never before

President Obama also reached out to Donald after the votes came through, to congratulate him, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said on Wednesday morning.
“The president invited the president-elect to meet with him at the White House on Thursday, November 10th, to update him on the transition planning his team has been working on for nearly a year,” he said. “Ensuring a smooth transition of power is one of the top priorities the President identified at the beginning of the year and a meeting with the President-elect is the next step.” He also added that he called Hillary as well, “and expressed admiration for the strong campaign she waged throughout the country.”
