Clinton: Trump's Campaign Was Successful in Comforting 'Millions of White People'

"I am done with being a candidate".

Over the next few weeks, Hillary Clinton will be making the rounds to promote her new book What Happened.

Clinton also criticised Trump's address at his inauguration, which she attended in January out of what she deemed a sense of duty, as a speech that spoke to the anger of some white voters. "I felt like I had let everybody down", she said.

"Yeah, millions of white people", Clinton replied.

Clinton told Pauley she was so certain of victory over the eventual victor, President Donald Trump, that she had only drafted a victory speech, not a concession speech.

Basically. she thinks Trump squandered an opportunity to unite the country, and instead played to his base with harsh rhetoric. and, apparently, white nationalist sentiments.

Indeed, in excerpts of her book that have leaked, Clinton takes swipes at many Democrats, including rivals like Sen. "And, you know, Bill (Clinton) just kept saying, "Oh, you know, that was a terrific speech", tryin' to just kinda bolster me a little bit".

Hillary Clinton speaks during the Women in the World Summit in NY last April.




"I just went into the bedroom, laid down on the bed, i just thought 'Okay".

Still, in her time away from the political spotlight, she has come to accept the harm her own gaffes may have caused, including calling some Trump voters a "basket of deplorables", a comment she called a "political gift" to Trump.

"But I am not done with politics".

'It was a gift, ' Pauley noted.

CLINTON: Well, I thought Trump was behaving in a deplorable manner... I thought his behaviour, as we saw on the Access Hollywood tape, was deplorable. "There were a large number of people who didn't care". It did not matter to them, ' Clinton said.

So effective that his win still seems to shock Clinton, 10 months after election night.

HILLARY CLINTON: I think I am good, but that doesn't mean I'm complacent or resolved about what happened. Pauley claimed that energized Trump's base, as if the decades of Clinton corruption wasn't energizing enough. It still is very painful. "It hurts a lot". And when asked later, he goes, "Well, it was too close to the election". "I had been working on a victory speech". But she writes that her campaign had more staff and spent more on advertising in both MI and Pennsylvania, two states she lost, than President Barack Obama did when he won them in 2012.

And, she added, "Yes, I had my fair share of Chardonnay". "It was a very hard transition, and I make no bones about it".
