House Speaker Paul Ryan called for unity following the election of Donald Trump Wednesday morning, saying the Republican nominee “just earned a mandate.”

“Donald Trump will lead a unified Republican government,” Ryan said, noting that he believed Trump heard the voices of those who felt they were no longer being listened to.

“This is the kind of unified Republican government that we set out to deliver,” he said.

“We all need to reeducate ourselves to making America great,” he said, echoing Donald Trump’s campaign slogan.
