Donald Trump pledged to work for unity after winning the presidential race on Tuesday.
“It is time for us to come together as one united people,” the president-elect said after news organizations declared him the winner. “I pledge I’ll be a president for all Americans.”
Trump, a Republican, said Democrat Hillary Clinton had called him to concede the race.
Earlier in the night Clinton was declared the winner in New Mexico. At 1 a.m. Wednesday she was ahead in the state by more than 8 percentage points.
But also at 1 a.m. The New York Times had Trump leading nationwide with 279 electoral votes — over the threshold of 270 for victory — to Clinton’s 218.
The newspaper predicted that Clinton would win the popular vote nationwide.
