Following her speech at the Women for Women event in New York on Tuesday, President Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to comment on Hillary Clinton's campaign.
“If the election had been on Oct. 27, I would be your president,” Clinton said at the event. But she said FBI Director James B. Comey’s letter to Congress announcing that he had reopened his investigation into Clinton’s email practices, combined with the damage Russian hackers inflicted through their disclosure of campaign emails, raised just enough doubt in the minds of voters to cost her the election.
Clinton’s refusal to take full responsibility for her loss comes after a flurry of post-election critiques concluded the campaign she ran was deeply flawed, neglecting key groups of voters and failing to project a compelling message. Critics, including some Democrats, also charge Clinton brought the email troubles on herself by setting up a private server in her home on which to conduct confidential government business.
