Hillary Clinton concedes race to Donald Trump

Hillary Clinton is conceding defeat to President-elect Donald Trump, capping off one of the biggest upsets in modern political history.


The Democratic nominee is speaking from the New Yorker Hotel in midtown Manhattan — a much different venue from last night where she'll give a much different speech than she had hoped to deliver.

The former Secretary of State and first major female party presidential nominee had planned to deliver her election night speech on a stage shaped like the United States of America underneath a glass ceiling in a massive convention hall. Instead, she will deliver her concession speech in a small nondescript ballroom in Manhattan where there isn't enough room for hundreds of supporters and staff who have gathered to see her.
