Hillary Clinton Takes Tumble During Trip to India

Hillary Clinton Takes Tumble During Trip to India

"I won the places that represent two-thirds of America's gross domestic product", Clinton said.

The Associated Press adds that Clinton told her audience at the India Today Conclave 2018 that the US did not "deserve" Donald Trump's presidency and these are "perilous times". She told an interviewer that people should "follow the money" to find evidence of foreign influence over USA politics. She claimed that she won the successful parts of the country and that Trump won the "backwards" areas.

She said the US was home to hard-working, law-abiding immigrants from around the world, including Latin America, India and China, and that Trump's campaign of "Make America Great Again" was backward.

In fact, Clinton characterized the Trump voter as a person who, "You know, you didn't like black people getting rights, you don't like women, you know, getting jobs".

In another moment, Clinton alleged married white women voted for President Trump because they felt "pressure" from their husbands, sons, and other men.

"Yet it turns out she really believes that any woman who voted against her must have been a mental or emotional prisoner of some man, trapped in a kind of political purdah", the daily said.

Her comments were dragged on Monday's Fox and Friends where Clinton was accused of "trash [ing] America's heartland". I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward. Mitt Romney was hurt in 2012 because he suggested that 47% of the public didn't pay taxes, and so couldn't hear his call for tax decreases; Hillary lost because she thinks people who live outside big cities are idiots and deplorables. Yet this is the picture Clinton painted of Trump's support.

Explaining why, in particular, she failed to resonate with white women, Clinton did what she does best: blame someone else. You dont want to see that Indian-American succeeding more than you are. Even 47 percent of Democrats said it wasn't fair. A similar share of Obama-to-nonvoters said that they would have voted for Mrs. Clinton had they turned out to vote.

Exactly what portion of Trump supporters Clinton lumps into the categories she described is unclear. Trump made hay of the circumstance by using it against her in his presidential campaign, by making her health an issue.
