The 2016 election has come and gone, but that hasn’t stopped Hillary Clinton from relentlessly discussing it during her events.
On Saturday night, Clinton and her husband, Bill Clinton appeared at an event on their Evening with the Clintons tour. During their stop in Los Angeles, Clinton opined that the 2016 presidential election was “stolen” from her, as documented by Fox News.
Clinton’s Statements on the 2016 Presidential Election
Clinton’s claim that the most recent presidential election was stolen to her came as a warning to current Democrats who are hoping to take on President Trump in 2020.
In her own words:
“I think it’s also critical to understand that, as I’ve been telling candidates who have come to see me, you can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you.”
During this event, Clinton also took jabs at the economy under President Trump before discussing the need to win over the Electoral College. This is something which Clinton failed to do in 2016, yet apparently still sees fit to give advice on.
Her statement reads as follows:
“So part of our challenge is to understand what it will take to put together not only the popular vote but the Electoral College.”
Why Clinton Really Lost the 2016 Presidential Election
Despite Clinton’s claims otherwise, the 2016 presidential election was not “stolen” from her. Clinton lost the election because of her poor policies and subpar campaign tactics. The reality is that what Clinton was offering didn’t appeal to the people of this country. Americans didn’t want a third term of President Obama.
As a matter of fact, Clinton’s inability to accept her loss just goes to further prove that Americans made the right call in not electing her.
