Hillary Clinton made yet another public appearance this week at Women for Women event in New York. She talked about a myriad of issues and had a ton of criticism for President Trump including treatment of women’s issues, Syria, North Korea, and others.
The comment that you need to take away, and thank god for is how she believes, and stated, that “if the election had been on October 27th, I would be your president.” Obviously there is no way to qualify that statement, but let’s all thank our creator that we can’t find out.
“If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president,” she told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour at a Women for Women event in New York.
“It wasn’t a perfect campaign, there is no such thing, but I was on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me and got scared off,” she said. “The evidence for that intervening event is, I think, compelling, persuasive, and so we overcame a lot in the campaign.”
She also agreed that misogyny played a role in her loss.
“Yes, I do think it played a role. I think other things did as well. Every day that goes by, we find out more about the unprecedented inference, including from a foreign power whose leader is not a member of my fan club,” Clinton said, referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin. “It is real, it is very much a part of the landscape, political and socially and economically.”
“I am hoping that because of voices like Jim Mattis and others that that will begin to influence the administration,” she said.
Clinton also responded to Trump’s comments on being open to meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jung Un.
“I take this threat very seriously. But I don’t believe that we alone are able to really put the pressure on this North Korean regime that needs to be placed,” she said. “Now the North Koreans are always interested … in trying to get Americans to try to come to negotiate to elevate their status and their position and we should be very careful about giving that way. We should not offer that in the absence of a broader strategic framework to try to get China, Japan, Russia, South Korea to put the kind of pressure on the regime (that will bring them to the table).”
“A foreign power meddled with our election and did so in a way that we are learning more about every single day,” she said.
She also added that it was “somewhat gratifying” to see Trump mystified about how complex health care is.
“You know, health care is complicated. Right?” Clinton said in a jab at Trump. “That was somewhat gratifying.”
