President-elect Donald Trump vowed on Wednesday to unify a deeply divided nation, having scored a stunning victory backed by extraordinary support from working-class America.

“I say it is time for us to come together as one united people,” Trump told supporters gathered in a Manhattan hotel near his Trump Tower campaign headquarters.

“For those who have chosen not to support me in the past, of which there were a few people, I’m reaching out to you for your guidance and your help so we can work together and unify our great country,” he said, the stage crowded with family and his most loyal allies.

Trump addressed the nation after sweeping most of the nation’s top battlegrounds.

He praised Clinton and urged Americans to “come together as one united people” after a deeply divisive campaign.
