‘I think that could be the end of our democracy. Not to be too pointed about it, but I want people to understand that this could be a make-or-break point. If he or someone of his ilk were once again to be elected president, especially if he had a Congress that would do his bidding, you will not recognize our country.’
Secretary Clinton warns that with Donald Trump trying to hang on to the presidency by any means, our country is at a vital “turning point.” She believes that we should be prepared for a 2024 Donald Trump run for the presidency, and that will just make the situation more complex in a worse way. But all hope is not lost.
Appearing on a taped TODAY Show, she said in the interview:
‘If I were a betting person right now, I’d say Trump is going to run again, But I want people to understand that this is a make-or-break point.’
‘2024 is a make-or-break point for the continuation of American democracy. No one who believes in the power of voters to choose their leaders, and the continuance of multiracial democracy, can sit this one out.’
Clinton tweeted that Americans should “press your senators to pass the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.” And the Indivisible Team will even give you a brief script on what to say:
‘There’s still time to press your senators to pass the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to save our democracy. Call them this morning.’
has a script for you.’
In her MasterClass video, The Power of Resilience, she talks about her mother and reads the speech she had prepared for a presidential election win. She said:
‘I think about my mother every day.’
The interview will air this weekend on Sunday TODAY, but TODAY gave us a sneak peek inside of it. Secretary Clinton said that she was so confident of a win in 2016, she did not even write a concession speech:
‘Even though we had a lot of bumps those last 10 days, I still thought we could pull it out so I worked on a speech that really was about my journey and had a real emphasis on my mother’s life and journey as a way of making it clear that, yes, I would be the first woman president, but I like everybody stood on the shoulders and lived the lives and experiences of those who came before us.’
Clinton held top positions in American’s government as U.S. senator from New York, secretary of state in President Barack Obama’s administration, and the 2016 presidential candidate against the ex-president. Trump told us that he would “lock her up,” if she lost. Another false promise.
