Donald Trump has won the 2016 Presidential Election, defeating Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
After the results of the election, the Republican candidate delivered a victory speech at the Hilton Hotel in New York City. Trump revealed that Clinton called, and extended her wishes.
"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," Trump told his supporters. "I mean she fought very hard. Hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time, and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country."
The results came as a shock as celebrities including Beyonce, Jay Z, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez, and more had publicly supported Clinton. Meanwhile, many in music and entertainment took to social media to share their thoughts.

I truly cannot visualize the rambling, incoherent creature I saw at the debates now addressing the nation from the Oval Office.— Seth MacFarlane (@SethMacFarlane) November 9, 2016
I still believe in us. Despite this evident, great divide. It's time to come together. Hear each other. Not give up, cry, or gloat. Unite.— Sophia Bush (@SophiaBush) November 9, 2016
