Hillary Clinton reads speech she would have given had she won election

Not bitter then, Hillary? Clinton breaks down in TEARS as she gives cringeworthy reading of the 2016 victory speech she wrote about becoming the first female president

  • ‘We will not be defined only by our differences,’ Clinton says in the speech, ‘We will not be an us versus them country
  • ‘I didn’t, soos jy weet, write a concession speech,’ Clinton gesê. ‘Even though we had a lot of bumps these last 10 days I thought we could pull it out
  • Clinton talked about what it would have meant to be the first woman president
  • ‘I’ve met women who were born before women had the right to vote. They’ve been waiting a hundred years for tonight,’ sy het gese
  • Hillary Clinton for the first time revealed the victory speech she would have given had she won that year, and admitted she did not even bother to write a concession speech.

    Democrats were blindsided by former President Trump‘s win that year and Clinton spent much time blaming Russian interference for her loss.

    The former nominee, who earlier this year boldly declared she would ‘never get out of the game of politics,’ proved she has not gotten over her sore loss as she shared the speech with NBC’s new Masterclass streaming platform, which features lessons from ‘luminaries from all walks of life.She also appeared in an interview for NBC Sunday to talk about the experience with anchor Willie Geist.

    ‘In this lesson, I’m going to face one of my most public defeats head-on by sharing with you the speech I had hoped to deliver if I had won the 2016 verkiesing,’ Clinton says in the video.

    ‘I’ve never shared this with anybody. I’ve never read this out loud. But it helps to encapsulate who I am, what I believe in, and what my hopes were for the kind of country that I want for my grandchildren, and that I want for the world, that I believe in that is America at its best.

    ‘My fellow Americans, today you sent a message to the whole world,’ she begins, sharing what she would have read to the world. ‘Our values endure. Our democracy stands strong. And our motto remains: e pluribus unum. Out of many, een.’

    ‘We will not be defined only by our differences,’ Clinton continues in the speech. ‘We will not be an us versus them country. The American dream is big enough for everyone. Through a long, hard campaign, we were challenged to choose between two very different visions for America. How we grow together, how we live together, and how we face a world full of peril and promise together.

    ‘Fundamenteel, this election challenged us to decide what it means to be an American in the 21st century. And for reaching for a unity, decency, and what President Lincoln called ‘the better angels of our nature.We met that challenge.

    On Nov. 13, 2016, Clinton’s public concession occurred more than 9 hours after the results of the election were known. Her staff at the time never replied to queries about why she didn’t come out Tuesday night, when supporters were already gathered for an election watch party.

    ‘I didn’t, soos jy weet, write a concession speech,’ Clinton said to NBC’s Willie Geist. ‘Even though we had a lot of bumps these last 10 days I thought we could pull it out.

    Clinton expressed disappointment when she finally addressed the lost to a crowd of supporters from a New York City hotel.

    ‘I know how disappointed you feel, because I feel it too. And so do tens of millions of Americans who invested their hopes and dreams in this effort. This is painful, and it will be for a long time. But I want you to remember this.

    ‘Our campaign was never about one person, or even one election. It was about the country we love and building an America that is hopeful, inklusief, and big-hearted. We have seen that our nation is more deeply divided than we thought,’ het sy destyds gesê.

    Clinton, a former secretary of state, senator, first lady and self-proclaimed ‘hair icon,’ talked in her would-be victory speech about what it would have meant to be the first woman president.

    President Trump delivered Clinton a stunning upset in 2016

    ‘I’ve met women who were born before women had the right to vote. They’ve been waiting a hundred years for tonight,’ sy het gese.

    ‘I’ve met little boys and girls who didn’t understand why a woman has never been president before. Now they know, and the world knows, that in America, every boy and every girl can grow up to be whatever they dream — even president of the United States.

    The former Democratic nominee became tearful as she talked about her mother, Dorothy Rodham, wat gesterf het in 2011. Clinton has said she had a difficult childhood.

    ‘I dream of going up to her, and sitting down next to her, taking her into my arms, en sê, ‘Look at me. Listen to me. You will survive. You will have a good family of your own. And three children. And as hard as it might be to imagine, your daughter will grow up and become the president of the United States.

    Clinton then detailed the version of America she believes she would have ushered in.

    ‘An America where women are respected and immigrants are welcomed. Where veterans are honored, parents are supported, and workers are paid fairly. An America where we believe in science, where we look beyond people’s disabilities and see their possibilities, where marriage is a right and discrimination is wrong. No matter who you are, hoe lyk jy, where you come from, or who you love.

    In the waning days ahead of the 2016 verkiesing, it often seemed as if Clinton was unable to shake old scandals.

    For many of the critical months of her campaign, she was under an active investigation by the FBI for potential mishandling of classified information.

    Her husband’s foundation was revealed to have accepted seven-figure donations from foreign monarchs. News outlets chronicled a series of relationships between foundation donors who then sought or got meetings, face time, or invitations.

    And her cozy speeches to financial institutions were labeled unseemly by Democratic challengers and worse by Republicans.

    Dan, during the final weeks of the campaign when most voters are paying the most attention, FBI Director James Comey dropped a bombshellthat the bureau was taking another look at Clinton’s emails.

    It didn’t take long before it was revealed that the emails in question were contained on the laptop of disgraced ex-Rep Anthony Weiner after DailyMail.com exposed his sexting of a 15-year-old girl.

    The scandals, or in some cases the appearance of them, threw a blanket over her campaign. She tried to roll out a series of policy proposals, but ended up dealing with hacks and emails until the final days of her campaign.

    In the final weeks of the campaign, emails hacked from the personal account of campaign chairman John Podesta provided daily distractions. Even some of her own advisers were revealed to question Clinton’s judgement.

    Trump seized on each of the issues in Clinton’s expanding portfolio of baggage, and branded his rival as ‘crooked Hillary.

    He read up on accounts of the Clinton family dealings, often ripping attacks from the headlines and working them into his speeches, which featured daily improvisations and occasional outbursts that infatuated the media and delighted his supporters.

    He declared himself the candidate of change, labeled Clinton part of a corrupt establishment, and turned what Clinton considered her greatest assetexperience -against her.

    The email issue rocked her campaign from its outset, after it was revealed that Clinton kept a private server and used it for her personal email.








    Hillary Clinton shares parts of the victory speech she would have given in 2016

    My mede-Amerikaners, today you sent a message to the whole world,” sy sê. Our values endure. Our democracy stands strong. And our motto remains: e pluribus unum. Out of many, een.

    We will not be defined only by our differences. We will not be an us versus them country. The American dream is big enough for everyone. Through a long, hard campaign, we were challenged to choose between two very different visions for America. How we grow together, how we live together, and how we face a world full of peril and promise together.

    Fundamentally, this election challenged us to decide what it means to be an American in the 21st century. And for reaching for a unity, decency, and what President Lincoln called ‘the better angels of our nature.We met that challenge.

    Today with your children on your shoulders, your neighbors at your side, friends old and new standing as one, you renewed our democracy. And because of the honor you have given me, you have changed its face forever. I’ve met women who were born before women had the right to vote. They’ve been waiting a hundred years for tonight.

    I’ve met little boys and girls who didn’t understand why a woman has never been president before. Now they know, and the world knows, that in America, every boy and every girl can grow up to be whatever they dream — even president of the United States.

    This is a victory for all Americans. Men and women. Boys and girls. Because as our country has proven once again, when there are no ceilings, the sky’s the limit.

    If you dig deep enough through all the mud of politics, eventually you hit something hard and true. A foundation of fundamental values that unite us as Americans. You proved that today.

    In a country divided by race and religion, class and culture, and often paralyzing partisanship, a broad coalition of Americans embraced a shared vision of a hopeful, inklusief, big-hearted America.

    An America where women are respected and immigrants are welcomed. Where veterans are honored, parents are supported, and workers are paid fairly. An America where we believe in science, where we look beyond people’s disabilities and see their possibilities, where marriage is a right and discrimination is wrong. No matter who you are, hoe lyk jy, where you come from, or who you love.

    An America where everyone counts and everyone has a place. A place and a purpose. Because we all have a role to play in our great American story. En ja, that absolutely includes everyone who voted for other candidates or who didn’t vote at all.

    Hierdie somer, a writer asked me if I could go anywhere back in time and tell anyone in history about this milestone, who would it be? And the answer was easy. My ma, Dorothy.

    You may have heard me talk about her difficult childhood. She was abandoned by her parents when she was just 8 jaar oud. They put her on a train to California where she was mistreated by her grandparents and ended up out on her own, working as a housemaid.

    Yet she still found a way to offer me the boundless love and support she never received herself. She taught me the words of our Methodist faith: ‘Do all the good you can for all the people you can in all the ways you can for as long as ever you can.

    I think about my mother every day. Sometimes I think about her on that train. I wish I could walk down the aisle.

    I wish I could walk down the aisle and find the little wooden seats where she sat, holding tight to her even younger sister. alleen. Verskrik. She doesn’t yet know how much she will suffer.

    She doesn’t yet know she will find the strength to escape that suffering. That is still a long way off. The whole future is still unknown as she stares out at the vast country moving past her.

    I dream of going up to her, and sitting down next to her, taking her into my arms, en sê, ‘Look at me. Listen to me. You will survive. You will have a good family of your own. And three children. And as hard as it might be to imagine, your daughter will grow up and become the president of the United States.

    I am sure of this as anything I have ever known: America is the greatest country in the world. And from tonight going forward, saam, we will make America even greater than it has ever been, for each and every one of us. Dankie, God bless you, and may God bless America.
