Hillary Clinton in India Says US 'Did Not Deserve' a Trump Presidency, Calls Trump Voters Racist

During an event in Mumbai, India with Bollywood stars, Hillary Clinton was reportedly introduced as the “woman who should have been the president of the United States of America” and she told those gathered that America “did not deserve” President Trump.

She was asked if America deserved Trump after the event’s host remarked “it’s commonly said that countries deserve the governments they get.”

“Well, I would have to say no, we did not deserve that,” Clinton replied.

Clinton also managed to insult Trump voters, suggesting racism and sexism were big motivators for their vote.

"His whole campaign: 'Make America Great Again' was looking backwards. You know, you didn't like black people getting rights, you don't like women, you know, getting jobs, you don't want to you know see that Indian American succeeding more than you are, whatever your problem is, I'm going to solve it.' So it was a symptom."    

Clinton was also asked about Trump’s relationship with Vladimir Putin, and she said that “Trump does have quite an affinity for dictators. He really likes their authoritarian posturing and behavior.”

“He does have a pre-existing attitude of favorability toward these dictators, but I think it’s more than that with Putin and Russia,” she added.

“Do they have something on him?” India Today editor Aroon Purie asked.

“Well, we’ll find out, we’ll find out,” she answered. “Follow the money.”

Clinton also reflected that in a campaign against a reality TV star perhaps she should have been more “entertaining.”

“If people were looking for a reality TV campaign, maybe I should have given them more entertainment,” she said. “I’m the mother who says, ‘Eat your spinach, you’ll grow up strong.’ Someone else is saying, ‘Eat all the fast food and the ice cream you can possibly stick in your mouth.'”
