Trump strikes unifying tone in victory speech

Ben Kamisar, The Hill

President-elect Donald Trump sought to cast himself as a unifier in his victory speech early Wednesday morning, calling for all Americans to come together to "bind the wounds of division." "To all Democrats, Republicans, Independents across this nation, I say it is time for us to come together as one united people," Trump said, taking the stage just before 3 a.m. Eastern after walking out to the score from the movie "Air Force One."
