Hillary Clinton, who has already run for president twice and been unsuccessful both times, made it clear on Tuesday that she has no desire to run for office again, even if Donald Trump were to enter the race.
When Norah O’Donnell from “CBS Evening News” prodded Hillary Clinton for an answer, Clinton responded with “No, no.” She did declare, though, that she would continue to be active in politics.
Clinton proceeded by stating that she is going to do all in her power to ensure that the next president of the United States values our democracy, the rule of law, and our institutions and that she is going to do whatever it takes to make that happen.

O’Donnell posed the hypothetical question to her: “What if Donald Trump runs again?” Clinton stated that in such a scenario, she hopes Trump suffers a crushing loss.
She went on to say that it ought to begin within the Republican Party. That they need to develop some sort of spine. And resist the influence of Donald Trump. Adding that even if by some miracle he were to get the nomination, he must be soundly destroyed and driven back to Mar-a-Lago as soon as possible.
In addition to this, Clinton made several remarks that raised eyebrows regarding the “peaceful transfer of power.”
She stated that she would not be honest if she didn’t say that on January 6, there was a treasonous conspiracy against the federal government of the United States and that it was wrongdoing that was supposedly led by Donald Trump. That has to be a joke, right? Trump represents exactly what the values of this nation stand for, and Clinton wants him to be pushed aside!
“You know, I was the secretary of state. I spent, you know, many days on airplanes, flying from place to place, encouraging people to have a real democracy. And one of the hallmarks of a real democracy is the peaceful transfer of power,” Clinton continued. “Was I happy when I beat Donald Trump by nearly 3 million votes but lost the Electoral College? No, I was not happy. Did I ever for a nanosecond think, ‘I’m gonna claim victory and try to get the Democrats to refuse to certify the election? ‘ No.”
However, after the election in 2016, she adopted a tone that was very different from before.

Earlier this week, Hillary blamed her loss in the 2016 election on the “Comey letter,” rather than expressing gratitude for the fact that she was not indicted. Hillary Clinton asserted that James Comey, former Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation was wrong about her classified emails. In September of 2016, Hillary claimed to reporters that the situation surrounding her emails was “another conspiracy theory” while her team worked to destroy evidence.
