US State House, Capitol Hill

Thank you. Thank you very much, everyone. Sorry to keep you waiting. Complicated business, complicated. Thank you very much.

I’ve just received a call from secretary Clinton. She congratulated
us. It’s about us. On our victory, and I congratulated her and her
family on a very, very hard-fought campaign.

I mean she fought very hard. Hillary has worked very long and very
hard over a long period of time, and we owe her a major debt of
gratitude for her service to our country.

I mean that very sincerely. Now it is time for America to bind the
wounds of division, have to get together, to all Republicans and
Democrats and independents across this nation I say it is time for us to
come together as one united people.

It is time. I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be
president for all of Americans, and this is so important to me. 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 that we can work together and unify our great country. As I’ve said
from the beginning, ours was not a campaign but rather an incredible and
great movement, made up of millions of hard-working men and women who
love their country and want a better, brighter future for themselves and
for their family.

It is a movement comprised of Americans from all races, religions,
backgrounds and beliefs, who want and expect our government to serve the
people, and serve the people it will.

Working together we will begin the urgent task of rebuilding our
nation and renewing the American dream. I’ve spent my entire life in
business, looking at the untapped potential in projects and in people
all over the world.

That is now what I want to do for our country. Tremendous
potential. I’ve gotten to know our country so well. Tremendous
potential. It is going to be a beautiful thing. Every single American
will have the opportunity to realize his or her fullest potential. The
forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.

We are going to fix our inner cities and rebuild our highways,
bridges, tunnels, airports, schools, hospitals. We’re going to rebuild
our infrastructure, which will become, by the way, second to none, and
we will put millions of our people to work as we rebuild it. We will
also finally take care of our great veterans who have been so loyal, and
I’ve gotten to know so many over this 18-month journey.

The time I’ve spent with them during this campaign has been among my greatest honors.

Our veterans are incredible people. We will embark upon a project
of national growth and renewal. I will harness the creative talents of
our people and we will call upon the best and brightest to leverage
their tremendous talent for the benefit of all. It is going to happen.
We have a great economic plan. We will double our growth and have the
strongest economy anywhere in the world. At the same time we will get
along with all other nations, willing to get along with us. We will be.
We will have great relationships. We expect to have great, great
relationships. No dream is too big, no challenge is too great. Nothing
we want for our future is beyond our reach.

America will no longer settle for anything less than the best. We
must reclaim our country’s destiny and dream big and bold and daring. We
have to do that. We’re going to dream of things for our country, and
beautiful things and successful things once again.

I want to tell the world community that while we will always put
America’s interests first, we will deal fairly with everyone, with

All people and all other nations. We will seek common ground, not
hostility, partnership, not conflict. And now I would like to take this
moment to thank some of the people who really helped me with this, what
they are calling tonight a very, very historic victory.

First I want to thank my parents, who I know are looking down on me
right now. Great people. I’ve learned so much from them. They were
wonderful in every regard. I are truly great parents. I also want to
thank my sisters, Marianne and Elizabeth who are here with us tonight. Where are they? They’re here someplace. They’re very shy actually.

And my brother Robert, my great friend. Where is Robert? Where is Robert? My brother Robert, and they should be on this stage but that’s okay. They’re great.

And also my late brother Fred, great guy. Fantastic guy. Fantastic family. I was very lucky.

Great brothers, sisters, great, unbelievable parents. To Melania
and Don and Ivanka and Eric and Tiffany and Barron, I love you and I
thank you, and especially for putting up with all of those hours. This
was tough.
