WASHINGTON (AP)—President-elect Donald Trump is calling for unity in a Thanksgiving address posted on social media.
In the message released Wednesday, Trump says the nation has just finished a “long and bruising” campaign and that “tensions don’t just heal overnight.”
Trump says he is praying that on Thanksgiving the country will “begin to heal our divisions and move forward strengthened by shared purpose.”
He adds that with the political campaign over, it’s time for a “great national campaign to rebuild our country.”
Trump did not detail any of his plans in the holiday address. He is appointing top administration officials as he readies for the January inauguration.
Let us give thanks for all that we have, and let us boldly face the exciting new frontiers that lie ahead. Happy Thanksgiving. pic.twitter.com/yH6LYdS2ts
