 It's time for the nation "to come together as one united people," - US president-elect Trump delivers victory speech

The newly elected U.S. president Donald Trump says his major election rival Hillary Clinton called him to congratulate on the victory.

"Now it's time for America to bind the wounds of division - have to get together," he said in a victory speech, Censor.NET reports citing CNBS.

"To all Republicans and Democrats and independents across this nation, I say it is time for us to come together as one united people."

Trump, who had been criticized by opponents for rhetoric characterized as divisive and racist, pledged, "I will be president for all Americans, and this is so important to me."
