Hillary Clinton is not running for President in 2020 she claimed on Sunday night.
During the interview with CNN affiliate News 12 Westchester, Clinton said: “I’m not running, but I’m going to keep on working and speaking and standing up for what I believe.”
“I want to be sure that people understand I’m going to keep speaking out. I’m not going anywhere,” Clinton added.
In an interview with Recode’s Kara Swisher in October, Clinton said “No. No,” when asked if she was going to run in 2020. But her full answer raised eyebrows, and seemed to leave open the possibility.
“Well, I’d like to be president,” Clinton said, when pressed by Swisher. “I think, hopefully, when we have a Democrat in the Oval Office in January of 2021, there’s going to be so much work to be done.”
She added, “The work would be work that I feel very well prepared for, having been at the Senate for eight years, having been a diplomat in the State Department, and it’s just going to be a lot of heavy lifting.”
Clinton also told “CBS Sunday Morning” in September 2017, “I am done with being a candidate,” while promoting her latest memoir.
CNN had reported that several former Clinton aides said she hadn’t ruled out a potential 2020 run. She made it official on Sunday.
