NEW YORK (WHDH) - President-elect Donald Trump spoke to a crowd of supporters near 4 a.m. Wednesday morning at New York City headquarters saying it is time to “bind the wounds of division.”

His son, Eric Trump followed closely behind Trump, praising his father and his route to victory.

“He’s incredible, the man is absolutely incredible, I’m so proud of him,” Eric Trump said. He added that his father won the election by speaking directly to the people.
