"I hope that you will all take some time to regroup. It's important that you understand that, you know, there's still a lot to be done in our country, by people like you, who are so, so important to us," she said. "This is a hard loss for all of us because we know what was at stake in this election, and we have to do everything we can to continue to support the causes we believe in. When you're ready, I hope you will get up and back in there and keep fighting."
Clinton was spotted walking her dog Thursday, and a photo of the Democratic nominee with a hiker who was "heartbroken" about the election results gained attention online.
"I hope that, you know, you'll take some time with friends and family, or do what I've been doing, take your dogs for a walk, if you have dogs, or, you know, whatever else gives you some real pleasure," she said Friday.
At an all-staff event Friday, Clinton distributed a red rose to each of her staff members to show her appreciation for their work on her campaign. She said the 1,200 roses were delivered to her by an aide in the wake of the election results.
