Hillary Clinton, speaking at the Shared Valued Leadership Summit in New York City, told the crowd that her identity as a capitalist hurt her in the 2016 Democratic primaries, due to the fact that so many Democrats are socialists.

Her capitalist beliefs “probably” hurt her in the Iowa caucuses, she said, where “41 percent of Democrats are socialists.”

Clinton mocked far-left Democratic fears about her.

“[My beliefs] probably [get] lost in the ‘Oh my gosh! She’s a capitalist,'” she said, imitating socialist Democrats.
