Hillary Clinton is traveling around India promoting her book "What Happened," and she's using it as an opportunity to bash those who didn't vote for her in the 2016 election.

For not the first time, Clinton made the claim that she lost the election because white women wouldn't stand up to their husbands or other men in their lives. She claimed that those women didn't follow their own opinions but instead caved to pressure and voted Republican.

During her appearance in India over the weekend, Clinton claimed she lost the 2016 presidential race in part because white women didn’t stand up to the men in their lives pressuring them to vote for Donald Trump.

“We do not do well with white men, and we don’t do well with married, white women,” Clinton said at a conference in Mumbai, India reported Fox News. “And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.”

Clinton was responding to a question about why 52 percent of white women voted for Trump rather than for her. They especially questioned this in the light of the “Access Hollywood” tape of Trump, which many believed would lose Trump the election.

Clinton also framed Trump's voters in a negative light. She said he ran a “backwards” campaign that appealed to "racists and misogynists."

"I won the places that represent two-thirds of America's gross domestic product,” Clinton said. “So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward. And his whole campaign, 'Make America Great Again,' was looking backwards."

She continued, claiming that this was now President Trump's message: “You know, you didn't like black people getting rights, you don't like women, you know, getting jobs. You don't want, you know, to see that Indian American succeeding more than you are, whatever your problem is, I'm going to solve it."

During the campaign, Clinton apologized for her "basket of deplorables" remark, where she argued Trump’s supporters were driven “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic" beliefs, said Fox News.

During the India trip, Hillary also slipped and almost fell down stairs twice. Read more about her fall and see the video.
