Wells Fargo CEO Tim Sloan said Wednesday that the company looks forward to working with President-elect Donald Trump and Congress to create strong fiscal policy.

After the surprising results, Sloan said the country will need its leadership to bring people together.

"Now with the election behind us, the American people are looking to our policymakers to bridge the divide and focus on matters important to the country and our future," he said in a statement to CNBC.

Sloan added that America's fair and free elections are the foundation of the democratic process, and he looks forward to working with Trump to help all Americans.

"Creating strong fiscal policy that promotes economic growth and greater opportunity for all Americans should be at the top of that list," he said. "We at Wells Fargo look forward to working with the new Administration and Congress to do all we can to help achieve this goal."
