Like a great many Americans, Margot Gerster has spent much of the week feeling pretty disillusioned by the result of the presidential campaign which saw Donald Trump elected 45th president of the United States.

And while countless Americans found their spirits momentarily lifted by Hillary Clinton's inspirational concession speech, Margot was fortunate enough to have a one-on-one with her in the wake of her shock defeat.

Taking to Facebook to share the moment with the public, Margot explained that she had been hiking with her baby daughter in New York when she bumped into Bill and Hillary Clinton walking their dogs.

"I've been feeling so heartbroken since yesterday's election and decided what better way to relax than take my girls hiking," Margot wrote in a post which has been liked a staggering 107,000 times in just 13 hours.

"We were the only ones there and it was so beautiful and relaxing. As we were leaving, I heard a bit of rustling coming towards me and as I stepped into the clearing there she was, Hillary Clinton and Bill with their dogs doing exactly the same thing as I was."

Explaining the impact Hillary's campaign has had on her as a mother, Margot added: "I got to hug her and talk to her and tell her that one of my most proudest moments as a mother was taking Phoebe with me to vote for her."

"She hugged me and thanked me and we exchanged some sweet pleasantries and then I let them continue their walk. Now, I'm not one for signs but I think ill definitely take this one. So proud."

Unsurprisingly, Margot has been inundated with comments from people all over the world who were touched by her impromptu meeting with Hillary.

"This is amazing!!! Can't wait for the shot 30 years from now when your daughter gets the chance to run for president because of the work Hillary did!' wrote one."That's gonna be an incredible before and after shot."

We're with them on that one.
