Donald Trump addresses nation as president-elect, congratulates Hillary Clinton on her campaign

Donald Trump spoke his first words as president-elect early Wednesday morning, apologizing to the audience for keeping them "waiting." "Complicated business," he joked.

Trump humbly proceeded to congratulate Hillary Clinton on a hard fought campaign, adding that he had received her call conceding the election and congratulating him in turn on his win.

"I say it is time for us to come together as one united people," Trump said, adding that "for those who have chosen not to support me in the past, I am reaching out to you for your guidance and support so we can unify our great county." Jeva Lange
