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