To the relief of pretty much everyone, Hillary Clinton said she will not run for president again in 2020. However, she promised to continue being a thorn in the side of President Trump (and the public).
“No, I’m not going to run again,” Clinton told BBC Radio 4 (via CNBC). But she said she will continue to criticize Trump and will stay involved in politics.
“I think I’m in a position where my voice will actually be magnified because I am not running,” she said. “As we watch Trump’s support shrink, people will say, ‘Well, what she said was right. And now, where do we go from here?'”
Clinton made the remarks shortly after President Trump tweeted that he hopes she will run again since she was widely viewed as a disastrous candidate.
“I was recently asked if Crooked Hillary Clinton is going to run in 2020? My answer was, ‘I hope so!’” Trump wrote.
At a press conference later, Trump doubled down on his hopes that Clinton runs in 2020. “Oh, I hope Hillary runs!” he said. “Hillary, please run again.”
Clinton, who’s currently shilling her new book “What Happened,” vowed to stay involved in politics to defeat Trump and other GOP candidates.
“I’ll also be raising money and support for candidates and causes I believe in,” she said. “I’ll be supporting the Democratic Party in the elections this year, next year and 2020.”
Not surprisingly, Clinton expected to win the 2016 election. So did everyone else: the media, the polls, and the pundits. That’s what happens when you feel entitled to something but don’t put in the work (like ignoring Wisconsin and other Rust Belt states).
“I thought I was going to win,” she said. “I had not worked on a concession speech, I had worked on a speech celebrating a victory. And it all came crashing down.”
Clinton had amassed a whopping $1 billion in donations and enjoyed the backing of the mainstream media, the Democratic Party, some of the GOP, Hollywood, and billionaire mega-donors. Yet still she lost.
In June 2017, CNN pundit Van Jones, a Clinton supporter, slammed Hillary and the Democratic National Committee for wasting $1 billion on themselves while paying lip service to helping minorities and other “needy” groups.
“The Hillary Clinton campaign did not spend their money on white workers, and they did not spend it on people of color,” Jones said. “They spent it on themselves, let’s be honest. They took a billion dollars — a billion dollars — and set it on fire, and called it a ‘campaign!’ That wasn’t a campaign.”
