This is just as Trump supporters are up in jubilation following his projected early lead over the Democratic nominee.

Clinton, in her Twitter handle, thanked her team, saying she was proud of them.

“This team has so much to be proud of. Whatever happens tonight, thank you for everything,” Clinton tweeted as uncertainty cast over her eventual victory among her supporters.

Trump has won  in several crucial battleground states, including Florida and North Carolina, giving the Republican nominee a path to victory. He is also in the lead in democratic strongholds of Michigan and Pennsylvania.

Supporters of Clinton watched nervously as healthy leads that had been predicted in polling for much of the past several months appeared to evaporate while the votes were tallied.

A CNN reporter at the Clinton Election headquarters in New York said supporters  were crying  as they streamed out  in despair after they watched the incredible results coming in.
