Donald Trump's win early Wednesday morning shocked much of America. Now some of the country's top Democrats are pledging to fight the hate and bigotry that seemed to follow Trump's campaign.
Outgoing U.S. Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada released a statement Friday condemning the rhetoric of Trump's campaign. He wrote, "If Trump wants to roll back the tide of hate he unleashed, he has a tremendous amount of work to do, and he must begin immediately."
Reid wrote, "I have heard more stories in the past 48 hours of Americans living in fear of their own government and their fellow Americans than I can remember hearing in five decades in politics."
