Trump Kicks Off ‘Thank You’ Tour: ‘We Are Going to Bring Our Country Together’

trumpPresident-elect Donald Trump kicked off his first post-election victory rally tonight by thanking the people of Ohio and basking in his big, historic win.

He told the crowd that they “propelled a victory a grassroots movement the likes of which the world has never seen before.”

At one point, reflecting on the campaign, Trump asked, “We did have a lot of fun fighting Hillary, didn’t we?” There were cheers and shouts of “lock her up!” from the crowd in response.

Trump struck a unifying tone, saying Americans must cast aside their differences and telling the crowd, “We are going to bring our country together, all of our country. We are going to find common down, and we’ll get the job done properly… America will start winning again.”

The president-elect also went out of his way to condemn bigotry, racism, and “the language of separation.”
