In her first interview since losing to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton says she doesn’t intend to run for office again.
Hillary was hinting towards her election loss when discussing that she didn’t want to get out of bed some days.
“The aftermath of the election was so devastating,” Clinton said during the Women in the World Summit at New York’s Lincoln Center. “I had to make up my mind I was going to get out of bed, yes; I was going to take walks in the woods, yes.”
“As a person, I’m OK. As an American, I’m pretty worried,” said Clinton.
At the top of Clinton’s list of concerns include the election meddling by Russia, Syria, and Trump’s attitude toward healthcare and women.
Hillary struggled to explain her defeat in the election, pointing towards the FBI, Wikileaks, and misogyny. Although misogyny couldn’t explain why 53% of white women voted for Trump, which Clinton acknowledged. She did warn that young women should be prepared for more abuse than their male counterparts when entering public service.
“Every woman who enters the public arena needs to grow skin as thick as a rhinoceros. Boy, do I relate to this,” said Clinton, paraphrasing Eleanor Roosevelt. “By the time they were finished with me, I was Typhoid Mary.”
Hillary vowed that she would still be active in public service and help Democrats take back Congress in 2018.
