Clinton Says White Women Voted for Trump Because of Their Husbands But Not Everyone is Buying It

MUMBAI, India (AP) — Hillary Clinton told an audience in India that the United States did not “deserve” Donald Trump’s presidency and white women voted for him because they were following their husbands.

The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate spoke over the weekend at a conference in Mumbai.

Clinton said the Republican president has “quite an affinity for dictators” and said Trump “really likes their authoritarian posturing and behavior.” But she said she thinks it’s “more than that” with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Russia. The former presidential candidate was also critical of Trump’s supporters summing up what drove them to vote for Trump.

“His whole campaign: ‘Make America Great Again’ was looking backwards,” said Clinton. “‘You didn’t like black people getting rights? You don’t like women, you know, getting jobs? You don’t want to, you know, see that Indian American succeeding more than you are? Whatever your problem is, I’m going to solve it.

Clinton also believes former FBI director James Comey’s Oct. 28, 2016, letter to Congress about her private email server cost her support from white women voters.

The critique against white female voters didn’t sit too well with “The View” hosts namely Meghan McCain who claimed it went against Clinton’s alleged feminism. Sunny Hostin chimed in as well with Joy Behar proclaiming it’s time for Clinton to move on. Watch the clip below.
