Clinton Says Trump Won On Vows To Take Country "Backwards"

Clinton Says Trump Won On Vows To Take Country

Philippe Reines, one of the Clinton campaign's chief lieutenants in 2016, for instance, said earlier this month that he understands "why that man (Trump) won in 2016".

"I think the party has moved on from Hillary Clinton", the former senior Clinton aide said.

"If your messaging is that you want to go back in time, that women can't think for themselves, that our husbands, bosses, and sons tell us what to do, that's quite the message going forward into midterms and [the] general election", she said.

On the same India trip, Hillary Clinton suggested that the states that voter for her were more economically advanced than those that voted for President Trump. "The Clintons are a virus in the Democratic Party". Her remarks, which have been seized upon by conservative commentators as "dismissing America's Heartland", were made to an audience in Mumbai, India, on Saturday. Fox & Friends slammed her for "trash [ing] America's heartland", and the research arm of the Republican National Committee wrote on Twitter, "Bitter Hillary Clinton trashes America's Heartland, calls states that didn't vote for her 'backwards".

If you look at the map of the United States, there's all that red in the middle where Trump won.

Congress is of the opinion that where the government builds walls, we will build harmony and ways of walking together. Mr Kumar added that Congress president Rahul Gandhi went overseas because he could not face defeat in the elections.

She received backlash from the right, but now Democrats and even her former aides have come out against her comments.

Clinton added that America doesn't deserve a Trump presidency, and highlighted the people and businesses in the country that were standing up for their ideals.

"I was on the way to winning until the 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, but got scared off", she told an global women's summit in NY in May of a year ago. "I can't sugarcoat it", she said. I may not have agreed with their choice, but I certainly respect them. "That's a lot of states". Now, I win the coasts, I win Illinois, Minnesota, places like that.

She famously lost to President Donald Trump in the crucial, historically Democratic-leaning states of Ohio, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.

Refusing to be beaten Clinton then kicked off her sandals and continued barefoot without issue.
