U.S. didn’t de­serve Trump, Clin­ton says

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - INTERNATIONAL -

MUM­BAI, In­dia — Hil­lary Clin­ton told an au­di­ence in In­dia that the United States did not “de­serve” Don­ald Trump’s pres­i­dency and these are “per­ilous times.”

The 2016 Demo­cratic pres­i­den­tial can­di­date spoke over the week­end at In­dia To­day Con­clave 2018, in Mum­bai, for­merly known as Bom­bay.

Clin­ton said the Repub­li­can pres­i­dent has “quite an affin­ity for dic­ta­tors” and said Trump “re­ally likes their au­thor­i­tar­ian pos­tur­ing and be­hav­ior.” But she said she thinks it’s “more than that” when it comes to Rus­sian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin and Rus­sia.

Clin­ton was crit­i­cal of what she de­scribed as Trump’s re­al­ity-tele­vi­sion-style cam­paign tac­tics and ques­tioned whether she should have pro­vided more en­ter­tain­ment to vot­ers who re­sponded to Trump’s brash meth­ods.

She also said she be­lieves that for­mer FBI Di­rec­tor James Comey’s Oct. 28, 2016, let­ter to Congress about her pri­vate email server cost her sup­port from white fe­male vot­ers.


For­mer U.S. Sec­re­tary of State Hil­lary Clin­ton ar­rives Tues­day in Jodh­pur, In­dia.
