NEW YORK (AP) -- Hillary Clinton delivered what were expected to be her final remarks of the presidential election Wednesday afternoon after a devastating loss to Donald Trump.
The speech was what her campaign billed as a concession speech to Republican Donald Trump after his upset victory in Tuesday's election. She spoke at a New York hotel.
Clinton says she's "sorry" she didn't win the election, adding "this is painful, and it will be for a long time."
She urged her supporters to accept the results, saying they owe Trump an "open mind" and a "chance to lead" and that American democracy depends on "peaceful transition of power."
Ashen-faced aides sat in the front row as supporters in the audience sobbed at the emotional event.
With her onstage were husband Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea Clinton.
