Everything has been so chaotic ever since the election process concluded. People rejoiced, people suffered, it has been a very had time for the losing side especially.
Hillary Clinton did her best to hold in her disappointment and the tears that threatened to fall during her concession speech, but according to Donald Trump, what was even “tougher” for the Democratic candidate was calling to congratulate him
In an interview for CBS News, the president-elect sat down and talked more in depth about what he thinks Hillary must’ve felt when the electoral votes revealed the results of the election. He tried to show how empathetic he was to his losing opponent by saying that “It was a lovely call and it was a tough call for her. I can imagine. Tougher for her than it would have been for me.”
He went on by explaining what he meant, the fact that he might not have been able to accept defeat so graciously if he was the one losing.
“I mean, for me, it would have been very, very difficult,” Trump said. “She couldn’t have been nicer. She just said, ‘Congratulations, Donald, well done.’”
Trump chose to give the same praise to Bill Clinton who also congratulated him. “He couldn’t have been more gracious. He said it was an amazing run. One of the most amazing he’s ever seen.”
As we all well remember, Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta went on stage on election night and advised supporters to go home and rest considering the vote counts would take a long time. About an hour later, the news that Donald Trump gathered enough electoral votes to win office surfaced. Despite the unavoidable victory, Hillary chose not to give her concession speech until the next day around noon, when news of her being inconsolable by the loss appeared.
