Here's What Hillary Clinton Said After Learning She'd Lost to TrumPutin

by Linda Olson April 19, 2017, 1:50

Hillary Clinton reportedly apologised to Barack Obama on the night of the USA election after conceding to President Donald Trump, according to a new book documenting the Democratic candidate's campaign.

In their new book, Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign, Amie Parnes and Jonathan Allen (writers forThe Hill andSidewire respectively) break down the failed presidential campaign. Steve Schale, among the most reliable Democratic strategists in the state, informed Clinton's campaign they were short on votes.

And Clinton herself hasn't given a definitive answer as to whether or not she'll make another attempt to move back into the White House.

After finally admitting defeat, Clinton said "give me the phone" and called Trump to congratulate him.

In fact, almost everyone in the business of politics thought she would win --including many of Trump's own people.

However, the book claims that Obama urged Clinton to declare defeat and not to "drag it out".

She phoned from the Peninsula Hotel in Manhattan and said: 'Congratulations, Donald. Bill had reportedly expressed concern before the election that Hillary's campaign was underestimating Trump.

Sullivan then tried to coax Clinton into giving a more fiery speech than a mere concession.

Alaskan oil well leaking gas
In 2006, a corroded pipeline released almost 5,000 barrels of crude oil, the largest oil spill in the North Slope at the time. The ADEC also said that two leaks have been identified at the well, one near the top and one further down the well assembly.

According to the authors, if Clinton carried the blame on her own shoulders that night, it didn't take long, in the aftermath of her loss, for her to unload it on those around her - including Obama.

According to Yahoo News, the authors thought that they would be watching the glass ceiling above women being "shattered" when they embed into Clinton's campaign. I asked why, thinking perhaps Clinton was going to meet off-the-record with reporters, but she was vague.

Clinton eventually did apologize to the public in August 2015, six months after the server issue was first brought to light. It says: "Obama's legacy and her dreams of the Presidency lay shattered at Donald Trump's feet".

"Mr President", she said softly.

'She had let him down.

Obama reportedly wanted to avoid Clinton - who was dealt her first major blow on November 8 around 7:45 p.m. when a top pollster informed her she was going to lose Florida, The Washington Post reports.

The world does not often clamor for a book about the losing presidential candidate, though Clinton may be the exception, given her celebrity and all the weighty questions for Democrats that still shroud her devastating loss.
