Donald Trump has won the United States presidency in a shocking and unprecedented turn of events, and what will follow is both unnerving and unknown. Hillary Clinton has yet to concede the presidency to him (she is set to give a speech at 9:30 a.m. ET), but presidential campaign chairman John Podesta had this to say:
"They're still counting votes and every vote should count. Several states are too close to call, so we're not going to have anything more to say tonight. So listen to me, everybody should head home. We should get some sleep. We'll have more to say tomorrow...Goodnight. We will be back. We will have more to say. Let's get those votes counted and let's bring this home."
Meanwhile, Trump mentioned that his political rival had called and offered congratulations:
"I've just received a call from Secretary Clinton, she congratulated us, it's about us, on our victory," he said upon winning. "And I congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard-fought campaign. She fought very hard."
