Us president-elect Donald Trump has called for national unity in an address to mark the thanksgiving holiday.
In the wake of what he called a “long and bruising” election campaign he said emotions in the country were raw.
The time had come, he said, “to begin to heal our divisions” but added that “tensions just don’t heal overnight”.
Earlier he announced the appointment of two women to his cabinet, both of whom had been fiercely critical of him during the presidential campaign
The appointments will need to be approved by the republican-controlled senate.
Mrs Haley also strongly attacked Mr trump’s proposal to ban Muslim immigrants, describing it as “UN-AMERICAN”
