2016-Election-Popular Vote Story

Their last interaction was at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner in 2011, when Obama relentlessly mocked Trump, who had then been fanning the flames of the so-called "birther" conspiracy.

Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president, speaks to supporters in NY on Wednesday, after losing the election to Republican Donald Trump.

The meeting was particularly on edge due to the vitriol Trump has hurled at Obama in the past.

"This needs to be a time of redemption, not a time of recrimination", Ryan said in a news conference. He also said Trump had earned a "mandate" to enact his agenda.

The results were startling to Clinton and her aides, who had ended their campaign with a whirlwind tour of battleground states and had projected optimism that she would maintain the diverse coalition assembled by President Barack Obama in the past two elections. The Electoral College map was considered favorable to Clinton, who was said to have several paths to the winning threshold of 270 electoral votes.

If Clinton maintains the lead in the popular vote, this will be the fifth time that a presidential candidate has won the popular vote but lost the election.

The speech was supposed to be her crowning achievement, adding another honor to a decorated career as former first lady, US senator and secretary of state.

Stock markets began dropping to their lowest limits Tuesday evening as Trump's win became more evident. The Dow Jones industrial average was up nearly 1 percent in midday trading in NY.

Although most polls throughout the 2016 campaign showed Clinton running ahead of Trump, in the final two weeks of the campaign her advantage narrowed in many national surveys, as well as in states such as Pennsylvania and MI.

"We have seen that our nation is more deeply divided than we thought", Clinton said in a speech she never hoped to deliver. "I hope that he maintains that spirit throughout this transition, and I certainly hope that's how his presidency has a chance to begin".

Global stock markets and US stock futures plunged early Wednesday but later recovered. Also Thursday, the first lady Michelle Obama and future first lady Melania Trump met in the White House residence. "I just had the opportunity to have an excellent conversation with president-elect Trump".

Obama promised a smooth change of leadership.

"I want to make sure that handoff is well executed because ultimately we're all on the same team", Obama said.
