Clinton in 1st Interview After US Polls

Clinton, who was speaking to The New York Times reporter Nicholas Kristof at the Women in the World summit, said she still can not fathom that 53% of white women voted for her rival Donald Trump.

"Certainly misogyny played a role, I mean that just has to be admitted", added the former secretary of state, who was treated to an ecstatic welcome and standing ovation from the crowd.

She also revealed that she is now writing a book on the reasons for her electoral defeat.

Clinton said family and friends "rallied around me in an incredible way" and used the platform Thursday to level barbs against the Trump administration, which she said was going through "some very public growing pains". "So whatever party you are, whatever business you run, whatever concerns you have, if we don't take action together to hold whoever was involved accountable, they will be back time and time again". Her own 9-point loss to Trump in Texas, she said, was the closest presidential election in the state in two decades. Clinton said both the men are not fond of strong women.

"I didn't fully understand how impactful that was", said Clinton.

The former Secretary of State also took on several other big issues during her speech including healthcare, women's rights and the role of women in the 2018 election. "What [Vladimir] Putin wanted to do was sow distrust and confusion as well as influence our election", she said and added that its time USA political leaders act like "patriotic Americans".

"Look, Syria's been a wicked problem for a very long time and the images of innocent people, of parents and especially children suffering in the aftermath of that most recent deadly gas attack were more appalling than I certainly can put into words", Clinton said at an event in Texas.

Hillary Clinton continued her lifelong advocacy for women during her onstage interview with Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times at the Women in the World Summit on Thursday.
