In the wake of the riots and protests after the presidential election, Dr. Phil shares his thoughts with America.

“I think it’s really a time for all people to really come together peacefully and give this *newly elected president a chance to govern,” Dr. Phil says, adding that he believes this to be true no matter which candidate had won. “What makes America the best country in the world is that we have a democracy that usually works very well and allows citizens to hold politicians accountable.”

He encourages all citizens to keep an open mind and a watchful eye. “Let’s continue to make this country that is already the best, even better,” he concludes.
