Hillary Clinton finally made it clear that she will not run for president in 2020. Some Republicans, especially president Trump, are disappointed to hear it.
"I'm not running, but I'm going to keep on working and speaking and standing up for what I believe," Hillary said during an interview on Monday, according to ABC News.
"I want to be sure that people understand I'm going to keep speaking out," she continued, according to News 12 Westchester, which did the exclusive interview with her. "I'm not going anywhere. What's at stake in our country, the kind of things that are happening right now are deeply troubling to me.”
“And I'm also thinking hard about how do we start talking and listening to each other again? We've just gotten so polarized,” she actually said. “We've gotten into really opposing camps unlike anything I've ever seen in my adult life."
Asked if she’s eyeing other political offices, Hillary replied, “I don’t think so.”
Trump took the news hard.
“‘(Crooked) Hillary Clinton confirms she will not run in 2020, rules out a third bid for White House.’ Aw-shucks, does that mean I won’t get to run against her again?” he wrote on Twitter Tuesday afternoon. “She will be sorely missed!”
Also on Tuesday, another Democratic hopeful dashed supporters’ hopes that he would take on Trump in 2020.
Writing for his Bloomberg, billionaire business mogul Michael Bloomberg argued that “it’s essential that we nominate a Democrat who will be in the strongest position to defeat Donald Trump” and added that “I believe I would defeat Donald Trump in a general election.”
But then he indicated that he is less certain about “winning the Democratic nomination in such a crowded field.” He may have also been referring to the difficulty in competing against the rising wave of socialist progressives who have been gaining popularity.
“I’m not running for president,” Bloomberg said.
