Democratic candidate from the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton, faced major backlash earlier this month for her latest comments against President Donald Trump and his supporters — specifically Trump’s female supporters.
While traveling in India to promote her new book “What Happened,” Clinton claimed that she lost the election because white women caved into “ongoing pressure” to vote the same way that the men in their lives did. Additionally, Clinton accused Trump of running a presidential campaign that catered to "racists and misogynists," negatively targeting people of color and working women. See what she said below:
Clinton finally responded to the backlash, but she did not apologize for her anti-conservative women remarks. Instead, the Democrat doubled down on her previous comments by claiming that “there is anecdotal evidence and some research to suggest that women are unfortunately more swayed by men than the other way around.”
“I understand how some of what I said upset people and can be misinterpreted,” she continued. “I meant no disrespect to any individual or group. And I want to look to the future as much as anybody...So to those upset or offended by what I said last week, I hope this explanation helps to explain the point I was trying to make.”
In her statement, she also slammed Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign theme (again), brought up Russia’s interference with the election (again), and claimed that the President has done “nothing positive to ease the pain” of his supporters.
