"Millions of white people", Clinton confirmed. Millions of white people.

Hillary Clinton opened up about her failed presidential campaign, how she handled losing to a reality TV star, and what that night was really like when she went in expecting to be the first female American president.

"I should have done a better job of demonstrating 'I get it, ' " she said, noting that "maybe I missed a few chances". "Like, you know, 'We really don't want a woman commander-in-chief'". Clinton added that the Trump supporters were already energized. In a feisty, relaxed pre -recorded interview with Jane Pauley this morning, she also promised that she won't run for office again, but that she would remain "in politics".

"I just felt this enormous letdown, just kind of loss of feeling and direction and sadness", Clinton said.

Clinton writes that Sanders' rhetoric about her during the primaries created "lasting damage", adding that Sanders "had to resort to innuendo and impugning my character" because the two candidates "agreed on so much".
