in a new interview for the Financial Times, Hillary Clinton claims the U.S. is at the “precipice” of losing democracy.
Hillary also predicted President Biden will run for re-election in 2024 despite his dismal approval ratings.
“We are standing on the precipice of losing our democracy, and everything that everybody else cares about then goes out the window,” Clinton said.
“Look, the most important thing is to win the next election,” she continued “The alternative is so frightening that whatever does not help you win should not be a priority.”
Clinton later pointed to the far left’s progressive wing of the party’s movement to “defund the police” as hurtful to Democrats.
“You need accountable measures. But you also need policing,” Clinton said. “It doesn’t even pass the common-sense politics test not to believe that.”
“Some positions are so extreme on both the right and the left that they retreat to their corners. … Politics should be the art of addition not subtraction,” she added.
Discussing Biden’s 2024 prospects, Hillary said “He certainly intends to run.”
She said the idea she would run is “out of the question.”
