Hillary Clinton says she won’t run for president in 2020, but vows she’s “not going anywhere.”

The former secretary of State, senator and first lady ruled out another campaign during an interview posted Monday by New York TV station News12.

Clinton, who lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump, said, “I’m going to keep on working and speaking and standing up for what I believe.

“What’s at stake in our country, the kind of things that are happening right now, are deeply troubling to me.”


She said she had spoken with several of the candidates seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, and told them, “Don’t take anything for granted, even though we have a long list of real problems and broken promises” from the Trump administration.
