President Obama’s Post-Election Speech: Watch Live Stream Here (Video)

Hillary Clinton loss seen as blow to Obama legacy

President Obama will address the nation on Donald Trump’s historic upset of Hillary Clinton on Wednesday afternoon.

Obama campaigned hard for his former secretary of state, appearing at rallies on a regular basis and sharing the stage with Clinton at Monday night’s Philadelphia gathering.

Wisconsin pushed Trump over the top, giving him 274 electoral college votes — four more than he needed to dash Clinton’s hopes of becoming America’s first female president. The Associated Press projected him as the winner shortly after 2:30 a.m. ET Wednesday.

Clinton’s loss is considered a major blow to Obama’s legacy, as Trump plans to repeal many of his predecessor’s policies, including the Affordable Care Act, his signature piece of legislation.

“Sorry to keep you waiting, complicated business,” Trump told supporters early Wednesday morning. “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 hard-fought campaign … We owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country.”

Trump said America needs to “bind the wounds” of this election and come together. The current president is expected to make the first official step toward that end.
