President-elect Donald Trump says Hillary Clinton congratulated him on his victory.

He said it's "time for us to come together," and has pledged to be president "for all Americans"

Addressing supporters at his victory party in New York City, Trump said that he congratulated Clinton "and her family on a very, very hard-fought campaign."

"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, very hard fought campaign."

He added that "we owe her a major debt of gratitude" for her service.

The gracious sentiment was a far cry from Trump's usually heated rhetoric about Clinton.

Vice President-elect Mike Pence declared Donald Trump's victory "a historic night."

Pence, Indiana's governor and Trump's running mate said "the American people have spoken and the American people have elected their new champion."
