  • Ah, hard time.

  • We've had a hard campaigns before.

  • We faced hard times before.

  • So once this election is finalized and behind us, it will be time for us to do what we've always done as Americans to put the harsh rhetoric of the campaign behind us.

  • The presidency itself is not, ah, partisan institution.

  • It's the one office in this nation that represents everyone, and it demands a duty of care for all Americans.

  • That is precisely what I will do.
