Donald Trump is the 45th President of the United States.
After a hard fought campaign, the Associated Press officially called Trump’s victory at 1:30 a.m. EST. Hardest hit? Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton and the media blasted Trump for weeks, after he said he would only accept the election results if he won.
Irony of ironies, Hillary Clinton declined to immediately give a concession speech.

So Hillary's plan is to concede, but not give a concession speech. A perfectly and fittingly pathetic and stupid end to her political career

Hillary Clinton's concession is the aggregate pain of every woman who has had no choice but to accept a preference for an inferior man.

One question left…
Will Hillary's concession speech be delivered via email?

It was initially reported that Clinton wasn’t going to concede. Her campaign chairman, John Podesta told their supporters the race was “too close” to call and to “go home” after Trump’s continued surge.
But it seems Clinton was hit with a reality check after more battleground states were called.
While Clinton declined to give a concession speech right after her defeat, she did call The Donald to congratulate him.

It's a damn shame that I can't properly enjoy the thought of a Hillary Clinton concession call.

Hillary Clinton's 3AM phone call turned out to be a concession. #ElectionNight
