BBC: Clinton wanted to curl up after Trump win

Hillary Clinton has laid bare her disappointment at her election defeat to Donald Trump in her first public appearance since she lost a week ago, according to the BBC.

The Democratic candidate said she had wanted to ”curl up with a good book and never leave the house again,” the BBC has reported.

But in a speech at a children`s charity she urged the audience to fight for American values and ”never give up.”

Mrs. Clinton won the popular vote but was beaten to the presidency in the all-important U.S. electoral college.

”Now I will admit coming here tonight wasn`t the easiest thing for me,” she said as she was honored by the Children`s Defense Fund.

She continued: ”I know many of you are deeply disappointed about the results of the election. I am, too, more than I can ever express.

”I know this isn`t easy. I know that over the past week a lot of people have asked themselves whether America is the country we thought it was.

”The divisions laid bare by this election run deep, but please listen to me when I say this.

”America is worth it. Our children are worth it. Believe in our country, fight for our values and never, ever give up.”
