• Clinton said she feels some guilt over Trump’s 2016 win even as she “tried to warn people”
  • She said she wants “people to understand that this could be a make-or-break point”
  • Trump has hinted that he will run for president again in 2024

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has predicted that Donald Trump will run for president again in 2024, and said that if the business mogul wins a second time, it could be the “end of our democracy.”

In an interview with Sunday Today, Clinton told host Willie Geist that if she were “a betting person right now,” she’d say “Trump is going to run again.” Clinton, who ran for president in 2016 and was defeated by Trump in what is deemed as one of the biggest election upsets in modern political history, said Trump “seems to be setting himself up to do that, and if he’s not held accountable, he gets to do it again. I think that could be the end of our democracy.”

Clinton argued that she wants “people to understand that this could be a make-or-break point,” adding that if Trump “or someone of his ilk were once again to be elected president, especially if he had a Congress that would do his bidding, you will not recognize this country.”

Geist pressed the former Secretary of State for the Obama administration if she had feelings of guilt regarding Trump’s upsetting win in 2016. “Of course. I tried to warn people. I tried to make the case that this was really dangerous,” she explained.

Clinton’s comments came on the heels of her revealed victory speech had she won the presidency in 2016.

In a video for her new MasterClass lesson on resilience titled, “The Power of Resilience,” the 74-year-old Democratic politician emotionally read the speech aloud for the first time publicly. Clinton teared up as she spoke about memories of her mother.

Excerpts of the speech were shared by NBC Today, wherein Clinton was quoted to have ended her speech with the words: “I am sure of this as anything I have ever known: America is the greatest country in the world. And from tonight going forward, together, we will make America even greater than it has ever been, for each and every one of us.”

In the 2016 election, Clinton beat Trump in the popular vote at 48% to Trump’s 46%, but in the Electoral College, Trump edged out the veteran politician at 304 to 227.

Meanwhile, Trump, at an event in Orlando on Sunday, hinted that he will run for the White House again in 2024. Speaking to a crowd of supporters the former president said he won in 2016 and insisted that he won against Joe Biden in 2020, “and it looks like we might have to think about very strongly a third time.”

Trump has yet to officially announce a third presidential run.
