Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton gave a stern and straightforward response during a 2014 CNN interview about how she thought the country's immigration laws should be executed, particularly when it came to children of undocumented immigrants, according to Mediaite. "It was a flawless storm".
Clinton even openly questions the actions taken by former President Obama and former Vice President Biden during and after the campaign. "I understood that there were many Americans who, because of the financial crash, there was anger and there was resentment", she said. "And it never stopped".
Indeed, in excerpts of her book that have leaked, Clinton takes swipes at many Democrats, including rivals like Sen.
"I am done with being a candidate", she said. They wanted me to share their anger.
Clinton said she realizes her campaign strategy was all wrong for the moment.
Though the interview did not mention Clinton's perspective on the 2016 Democratic primary, many Democrats have privately and publicly grated at the release of the former candidate's book, noting that it reopens numerous intraparty fights that Democrats have been attempting to put behind them since the election.
Clinton expressed some regrets, including what she described as a failure to appeal to the outrage of the American worker. And she writes in her book that Sanders' populist attacks on her opened the door to Trump's "crooked Hillary" strategy.
But I'm a former first lady, and former presidents and first ladies show up. She felt "directionless and sad".
The Women's March in January was organized in response to the election of Mr. Trump, and many marchers were Hillary supporters.
For poor Hillary Clinton, some things just never change. "I find this fairly remarkable, considering that Joe himself campaigned for me all over the Midwest and talked plenty about the middle class".
Ten months after her loss, the former secretary of state and first lady said she's still coping with it. She also discusses at length alleged Russian interference in the election, Trump's ties to Russia, and developments through the first half of 2017. In the interview, Clinton said she knew she was going to have to "have to work extra hard to make women and men feel comfortable with the idea of a woman president". "But our job is really not to go backwards".
"Bill [Clinton] just kept saying, 'Oh, you know, that was a terrific speech, ' trying to just bolster me a little bit".
