Hillary Clinton may not be president, and she may not be running again, but that’s beside the point (at least for now).
President Trump frequently likes to bring up the election over and over again, as well as Hillary Clinton and her supposed “crimes.” So, do her voters.
Well, Hillary has a response to that one, and it’s a good one.
While speaking in India, Mrs. Clinton engaged with a video audience in a very rare appearance since losing out in the 2016 presidential election and dropped a little-known factoid that hasn’t been discussed before.
“If you look at the map of the United States, there’s all that red in the middle where Trump run. I won the coast, I won Illinois, Minnesota, places like that. But, what the map doesn’t show you is that represent two-thirds of America’s GDP. So, I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward.
His whole campaign: ‘Make America Great Again’ was looking backwards,” said Clinton. “‘You didn’t like black people getting rights? You don’t like women, you know, getting jobs? You don’t want to, you know, see that Indian American succeeding more than you are? Whatever your problem is, I’m going to solve it.”
Yeah, she just called Trump voters ‘ backward.’ We love it!
For those of you who say ‘who cares what Hillary thinks? She lost,’ you’re missing the point.
Hillary isn’t trying to re-litigate the presidential election. She’s merely making a statement to audience-goers who are interested in the subject. To the contrary, Trump has consistently used his win over Hillary to gloat since being in office for over more than a year now.
The Washington Post even crunched the numbers and found that Trump has mentioned the presidential race at least once out of every five days. That’s a lot.
Vox did a study of their own, too, and found that Trump has tweeted Clinton’s name a total of 75 times since Inauguration Day (January 20, 2017). Trump having an infatuation with her is an understatement.
Here’s Hillary giving a little more context about the election:
Winning the election wasn’t enough for him. After it was announced that he lost the popular vote by more than 2.7 million people, Trump had to try and vindicate his name as the better man by launching a Voter Fraud Election Panel, which was later disbanded after it was determined a lost cause. Trump claimed millions of people voted illegally but wasn’t able to prove those claims.
We’re sure this latest statement from Clinton is going to get under Trump’s skin even more. Expect some more late-night or early tweeting on this.
Let’s grab ’em by the midterms!
