- Hillary Clinton, the former senator, secretary of state, first lady and presidential candidate published her memoir, “What Happened,” about the 2016 presidential election in which she lost to Donald Trump.
- Clinton called the Trump presidency “a clear and present danger to our country and to the world.”
- Clinton said that President Trump has given “a lot of encouragement” to white supremacy groups and that he should have reacted differently to the actions of neo-Nazi and the Ku Klux Klan in Charlottesville.
- On the matter of foreign policy, Clinton says Trump “gives aid and comfort to people like Kim Jong Un and Vladimir Putin,” and that currently the U.S. does not have a real foreign policy team.
