Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton offered some bizarre insights into the 2024 race for the White House; saying Republicans will try and win the Oval Office by winning in the Electoral College.
“These states were run by Republicans so there was no way to find out the truth about any of them. I also believe in peaceful succession and transition and all of that,” said Clinton.
“I think if he can he’s going to run again,” Clinton told the Financial Times. “Follow the money with Trump — he’s raised about $130mn sitting in his bank account that he used to travel around, to fund organising against elections . . . I don’t know who will challenge him in the Republican primary.”
From the FT:
“These states were run by Republicans so there was no way to find out the truth about any of them. I also believe in peaceful succession and transition and all of that.” At that point she says she was unaware of Cambridge Analytica and the role of social-media algorithms — “all of the stuff that was convincing people that I was a murderer or a child trafficker”. She reminds me that she won the popular vote by nearly 3mn but lost the electoral college by 78,000 votes. Biden won the popular vote by more than 7mn but barely scraped the electoral college by 43,000 votes. “That tells you everything you need to know about Republican strategy for 2024. Even in his reptilian brain, Trump has to know that he lost this time. He refuses to accept it because it wasn’t supposed to happen.”
