WASHINGTON (AP) —  President-elect Donald Trump says Hillary Clinton called him to congratulate him on his victory.

Trump, addressing supporters at his victory party in New York City, said Wednesday that he “congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard-fought campaign.”

He added that “we owe her a major debt of gratitude” for her service.

The gracious sentiment was a far cry from Trump’s usually heated rhetoric about Clinton. He has suggested that she should go to jail and chants of “Lock her up!” were a staple at his campaign rallies.

Pence, Indiana’s governor, addressed Trump’s victory party in New York City early Wednesday.

Trump’s running mate said “the American people have spoken and the American people have elected their new champion.”
