- Misogyny: Hillary Clinton said some people had problems with a woman being their President, something that was beyond her control.
"People have asked me, 'Why do you think he did that to you?' and, I don't think it's too complicated", Clinton said.
Her remarks came two days after a poison gas attack in Syria that killed at least 70 people, many of them children.
Trump said on Thursday that "something should happen" with Assad after the attack, as the Pentagon and the White House studied military options. Current U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson mirrored the claims of the President, saying that a plan is in place for an global coalition to move towards removing the dictator. "Who benefits, if chemical weapons were used and America weighs in on the side of the rebels, or wades into a war against Assad?" "It requires a serious response". In an extensive interview with New York Times reporter Nicholas Kristof, Clinton covered a range of issues, including US intervention in Syria and the bipartisan investigation into Russian Federation election interference. "As an American, I'm pretty anxious", said Clinton. Kerry was a leading proponent of the 2013 USA invasion of Syria, which was scrapped because of Congressional opposition. Clinton made it clear that her focus is on exacting change in whatever way she can that doesn't involve campaigning for public office and subjecting herself to that again.
Turkey's Health Ministry on Thursday said that autopsies of some of the victims revealed that they were exposed to sarin, a deadly nerve agent that is banned by the United Nations. "We don't know. We just know the impact".
The former presidential candidate shared her thoughts on president Donald Trump's latest airstrikes on Syria.
Clinton did not shy away from criticizing the president and his policies.
"The combination of the Comey letter and WikiLeaks, which played a much bigger role than many people understand yet, had a determinative effect", Clinton said. "What [Vladimir] Putin wanted to do was sow distrust and confusion as well as influence our election", she said and added that its time USA political leaders act like "patriotic Americans".
