I was for Hillary Clinton - Samira Bawumia

Samira Bawumia has said she was all out for defeated Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton in the US presidential race.

According to the wife of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the Vice Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party, she supported Bill Clinton’s wife because she was the suitable candidate in the race to the White House.

“I was rooting for Hillary in some sense, she is a woman and she positioned herself well,” Mrs. Bawumia said on #RYTHMZSLIVE, ONE ON ONE on GHOne TV Wednesday.

She confessed that Mrs. Clinton’s defeat came as a surprise to her.

“At the end of the day, the people want jobs. People really want jobs, people want to have a better experience,” she told host Berla Mundi.

Trump becomes the 45th US president after a stunning victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

The US president-elect took to the stage at his victory rally in New York and said: "I just received a call from Secretary Clinton. She congratulated us on our victory."

"It is time for us to come together as one united people."

Mrs. Clinton had been seeking to make history as the first woman to win the White House, but instead the 70-year-old Mr. Trump made history of another sort, becoming the first person elected to the top job without having held a high government office or military command.

His victory upends a Washington establishment that voters said had lost touch with folks back home, and is a searing rebuke to President Obama, who had pleaded with voters that his hope-and-change agenda was at stake in this election.
