“He’s being given a mandate,” Kellyanne Conway told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on “New Day.” “And that mandate is going to be somewhat different than what we’ve had, it’s a repudiation of some of the things we’ve had.”
After it became apparent that the reality-star-turned-politician was elected the 45th president of the United States, Conway said she received a call from Clinton aide Huma Abedin, letting her know that the former secretary of state wanted to talk to Trump.
“I handed him the phone and they had a maybe one-minute conversation, very gracious, very warm. I heard Mr. Trump’s side of it,” Conway said. “He commended her for being smart and tough and running a very hard-fought campaign. And I am told Secretary Clinton congratulated Donald Trump on his victory, and conceded to him.”
