Hillary Clinton made history Tuesday night when she became the first female presidential nominee from a major party in U.S.
Clinton secured the delegates needed to win the nomination and even offered Bernie Sanders and his supporters an olive branch.
“I want to congratulate Sen. Sanders for the extraordinary campaign,” she said. “He has spent his long career in public service fighting for progressive causes and principles and has excited millions of voters, especially young people.”
Clinton also had a few words for Donald Trump.
“Whether you supported me or Sen. Sanders or one of the Republicans we all need to keep working toward a better, fairer, stronger America.”

“We believe that cooperation is better than conflict, unity is better than division… and bridges are better than walls,” she continued. “The stakes in this election are high and the choice is clear: Donald Trump is temperamentally unfit to be president of the United States… He’s not just trying to build a wall between America and Mexico, he’s trying to wall off Americans from each other.”
