Hillary Clinton Calls President Trump An “Assault On Our Democracy”


Hillary Clinton accuses President Donald Trump of having waged an “assault on our democracy” during his first two years in office and urges Americans to fight back in a scathing new essay published by the Atlantic on Sunday night.

In the essay, Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, writes that the Republican who defeated her has pursued policies of “unspeakable cruelty,” including separating migrant families at the border.

She accuses Trump’s administration of “monstrous neglect” of Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria ravaged the island. And she takes Trump to task for continuing to call the special counsel’s investigation into Russian election interference a “hoax.”

“Trump and his cronies do so many despicable things that it can be hard to keep track,” Clinton says. “I think that may be the point – to confound us, so it’s harder to keep our eye on the ball. The ball, of course, is protecting American democracy. As citizens, that’s our most important charge. And right now, our democracy is in crisis.”

“I don’t use the word crisis lightly,” she says. “There are no tanks in the streets. The administration’s malevolence may be constrained on some fronts – for now – by its incompetence. But our democratic institutions and traditions are under siege. We need to do everything we can to fight back.”

The essay is adapted from the afterward of the paperback edition of Clinton’s memoir, “What Happened,” which will be published this week.

In the essay, Clinton also accuses Trump of “waging war on truth and reason” and “breathtaking corruption” and says he is undermining “the national unity that makes democracy possible.”

Since her 2016 loss, Clinton has stepped up her criticism of Trump and his policies. In recent weeks, she’s been actively fighting his nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Trump, meanwhile, continues to use Clinton as a foil, criticizing her at political rallies and calling for investigations of her actions while secretary of state.

  1. Hillary could go on saying whatever she wants, having become a permanent private citizen. She will never again hold another public office, except, perhaps, as a chairperson of condo association for the retirees at Del Boca Vista II…..

  2. President Trump was elected by the people. That is democracy. When Clinton tries to dictate what she thinks the election results should have been that is dictatorship. Let’s get it straight.

  3. Sick, a sore loser and totally incompetent Secretary of State that allowed people to die in Bengazi and sold out American uranium for barely disguised bribes to her foundation.Yet she thinks democracy is in danger from the elected President and the Americans who voted for him?

  4. Look who’s talking about “an assault on our democracy” – the woman who lost twice and still whining about it after almost 2 years.

    “unspeakable cruelty” you say, Hillary? Is it more cruel than the Clinton Body list of your tens of dozens of suicides? This serial killer with so much blood on your hands, why aren’t you behind bars yet?

    One who practiced witchcraft and voodoo is accusing an honest person of “monstrous neglect”, huh?

    The “Russian election interference HOAX” is your fabrication, Hillary. YOU SHOULD BE ARRESTED FOR IT. Do you think the American people are stupid?

    ““Trump and his cronies do so many despicable things that it can be hard to keep track,” says the Criminal-in-Chief who is still not in jail nor investigated because all who are being investigated are suicided by this Devil.


  5. Ms. Clinton is one cigar short of a good man. I wonder why she is so poor to continue to think that her unorthodoxy is humane.

    This is absurd. Why of course. Its Hashem’s universe. We see how Mr. Trump beat the pants off her. I wonder why she wanted to be unorthodox. Real ladies wear dresses.

    Way to go Mr. Trump. She lost and still wants the same get up. Does a democrat do anything in his sleep? Just cat calls. They bore the very sheep they can count.

  6. “No tanks in the streets”

    This lady has a terrible case of dementia and should not be allowed to appear in public. She is completely incoherent. She can’t even read the democrat talking points correctly, reading from her telepromter. Where is her home aid? How did she get out of her nursing home without the front security desk seeing her sneak out? This lady has clearly entered the Joe Biden Zone where only crazies are allowed. She’s got a great seat between Bernie Sanders and Nanci Plastic.

  7. what democracy—to give rights for terrorists, turn the country into immoral cesspool, let illegals take over the US… etc etc like you clintons free s-x of the sisties
