WASHINGTON (AP) – Hillary Clinton is reflecting on her devastating defeat, acknowledging the difficulty of her loss for her supporters and urging them to persevere through the Donald Trump era.

She is encouraging her backers to “never, ever give up.”

Making her first public appearance Wednesday evening since her emotional concession speech a week earlier, Clinton said: “It’s up to each and every one of us to keep working to make America better and stronger and fairer.”

The former Democratic candidate never cited the president-elect by name in her remarks, making only an oblique reference to the controversial policies that fueled his rise to the White House.

Instead, she focused on the future, asking her backers to “stay engaged on every level.”
