Clinton said, “I’m not going anywhere. What’s at stake in our country, the kind of things that are happening right now is deeply troubling to me. And I’m also thinking hard about how do we start talking and listening to each other again.”
Clinton continued stating: “We’ve just gotten so polarized. We’ve gotten into really opposing camps, unlike anything I’ve ever seen in my adult life.”
CNN has reported that Clinton has met with a range of candidates and individuals to consider a presidential run in 2020. She also met with Democratic candidate Amy Klobuchar and ex-vice president Biden, considering to launch 2020 presidential election campaign in February.
Clinton said, “People need to understand that in many cases, they were sold a bill of goods. We can’t take anything for granted. We have to work really, really hard to make our case to the American people, and I’m gonna do everything I can to help the Democrats win back the White House.”
