Hillary Clinton says her election loss to Donald Trump took an emotional toll, but hopes her campaign staff and volunteers when "ready… will get up and back in there and keep fighting."

In a conference call-pep talk Friday night, Clinton admitted: "I’m not going to sugarcoat it. These have been very, very tough days," the Huffington Post reports.

"This is a tough time for our country. I think we have seen how people have been reacting to the events of this election and I know we have got to be reaching out to each other to keep it clear in our own minds that what we did is so important."

The remarks were the first since the Democratic presidential nominee conceded the race in an emotional speech Wednesday.

"It looks like we are on the path to winning the popular vote, and that says volumes about the importance of your work and the lasting impact it will have," she said.

She also called her campaign "one of the greatest honors of my life."

"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," she said.

"When you're ready, I hope you will get up and back in there and keep fighting."

Clinton was photographed Thursday taking a walk with her husband, Bill Clinton, and their dog – and on Friday encouraged those feeling down about her election defeat to find their own remedy.

"Take your dogs for a walk if you have dogs," she advised.
