Senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett on Wednesday described Donald Trump’s stunning Election Day victory as a “punch to the stomach,” but said the White House morale “is a lot better today” than it was nearly a month ago.

“Obviously we were surprised by the outcome of the election,” Ms. Jarrett said of Hillary Clinton’s defeat, Politico reported.

“It kind of was like a, I’m not sure what the right analogy would be, but like a punch in the stomach, let’s say.
