Valerie Jarrett on Thursday said that she didn't see President Trump's win coming.

"It's a big, complicated democracy, and one of the strengths of our country is ... its rich diversity," Jarrett, who served as senior adviser to former President Obama, said during an interview on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "I actually didn't see the election coming out the way it did. I wouldn't have predicted it."

Jarrett also called on Americans to move past the election results and focus on "creating a big and inclusive tent."

"The question is, like, where do you go from here? And what do we do to just rebuild and focus on creating a big and inclusive tent, where we're focusing on making sure every child gets that fair shot, that every woman gets to compete on a level playing field, that we are true to the core values of our country and we're making sure that we honor those values?" she said.
