Hillary Clinton lost the US Presidential election against Donald Trump. On the night between Tuesday and Wednesday, she conceded her defeat to her rival but she has not made a speech to her supporters.

The polls had been predicting the victory to the former Secretary of State against the billionaire businessman. However those polls are not elections: the Republican candidate won 276 votes, while the Democratic candidate garnered only 216 votes.

Hillary Clinton would be the change but has failed to mobilize her electorate. At the announcement of Trump’s victory, she conceded her defeat by calling her rival. During this night, Hillary Clinton did not speak to her supporters. In her headquarters in Manhattan, her campaign manager John Podesta ordered the supporters to go home because the results were uncertain. Many celebrities exoressed their disappointment to the Democratic candidate’s defeat as the singers Katy Perry, Madonna, Lady Gaga and the actress Eva Longoria.

Before the election result, Hillary Clinton tweeted a message of thanks to her supporters: “This team has so much to be proud of. Whatever happens tonight, thank you for everything.”
