Clinton: ‘I Meant No Disrespect’ to Trump Supporters

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton claims that she “meant no disrespect” to supporters of President Trump following controversial comments Clinton made during a recent trip to India.

During a discussion at the India Today Conclave, Clinton suggested that women who voted for Trump did so out of some sort of “pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.

Clinton also said that Trump supporters didn’t like African Americans “getting rights” or women “getting jobs.”

Top Democrats, including Sens. Dick Durbin (D-IL), Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), and Claire McCaskill (D-MO) all expressed displeasure with Clinton over her remarks.

“I understand how some of what I said upset people and can be misinterpreted,” Clinton wrote in a lengthy Facebook post on Saturday. “I meant no disrespect to any individual or group. And I want to look to the future as much as anybody.”

Clinton attempted to explain away her comments regarding women who voted for Trump:

“Do I believe that some women look at a powerful woman and question whether she can lead, maybe voting for the man their husband is voting for instead? It may not be universally true or easy to hear, but yes, it’s a dynamic still at play in our society.”

Clinton also didn’t seem to think that it is yet time for her to stop talking about the 2016 election writing, “Our future requires us to learn from 2016.”

“So to those upset or offended by what I said last week, I hope this explanation helps to explain the point I was trying to make,” Clinton wrote.

It appears that Clinton is not willing to stop talking about the 2016 election, which might frustrate Democrats running in 2018.
