Hillary Clinton, the defeated presidential candidate, says US President-elect Donald Trump must be given a chance to lead.
Appearing in public for the first time since conceding defeat, the Democrat said she hoped Mr Trump would be a successful president for all Americans.
“We have seen that our nation is more deeply divided than we thought,” she said.
Donald Trump will become the 45th US president after a stunning victory.
Mrs Clinton urged her supporters to respect the election result.
