Clinton says she didn't want to leave house again after electoral defeat

The former Democrat candidate for the White House, Hillary Clinton, confessed on Wednesday that after losing the election on Nov. 8 to Republican Donald Trump, she has faced moments in which she did not want to leave her home again.

"There have been a few times this week when I wanted to curl up with a good book or our dogs and never leave the house again," Clinton said during a speech in Washington, her first public appearance since her electoral defeat.

Clinton participated in a gala at the Children's Defense Fund, but admitted that coming there "wasn't the easiest thing" for her.

During her 20-minute speech, the former candidate to the United States presidency urged her supporters to "believe in our country", "fight for our values", and "never, ever give up."

"I know many of you are deeply disappointed about the results of the election - I am, too, more than I can ever express," said the former first lady.

"But as I said last week, our campaign was never about one person or even one election. It was about the country we love, and building an America that is hopeful, inclusive and big hearted," she added, as she urged her backers to "stay engaged on every level."

"We need you. America needs you, your energy, your ambition, your talent. I know this isn't easy. I know that over the past week a lot of people have asked themselves whether America was the country we thought it was. But please listen to me when I say this: America is worth it. Our children our worth it," she said.
