Hillary Clinton has hinted that she will not be in the race for 2020 presidential campaign. Clinton explained it as something that she “can’t imagine” as a circumstance that would make her run for president in 2020 or thereafter.

Noting that “there are things that I care deeply about” Clinton said “just because I’m not running, I’m not going to keep my mouth shut. I’m going to keep speaking out.”

Clinton was speaking at Tina Brown’s “TBD” podcast. In its latest episode, the former secretary of state said she will not remain a mute spectator and criticize President Donald Trump very loudly. Trump defeated Clinton in the 2016 election.

Clinton said she her fight for basic rights, and rule of law will go on. Clinton lambasted the Trump administration for its “inhumanity” and “most outrageous” policy of segregating migrant children from their families at the Mexico border.

Clinton cautioned women candidates running for president next year that they have many challenges in store. She said deep fake videos are one of “the biggest threats to democracy.”

Clinton also spoke about her soured relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin whom she described as “cold-blooded.”

Flaying Republicans, Clinton said she is astounded by “the jelly-like submission of the GOP” to the President.

Hillary Clinton to mentor Democrats in campaign

Meanwhile, a New York Times report said Clinton’s presence in the 2020 presidential campaign will be more as a mentor to Democrats and that will make her presence more formidable and equal the active candidacy in 2016.

The report eulogizes her multifaceted experience and global contacts. Clinton’s vast profile covers eight years as first lady, many years as New York senator, four years as secretary of state and later as party’s presidential nominee.

It says these attributes make Clinton highly indispensable in Democratic presidential politics.

Even as Democrats are powered by the passion to defeat Trump, Clinton knows the rigors of primary more than anyone else in the party.

Clinton’s main advice to candidates is not to let their message drown in policy debates.

She also warns party candidates to be vigilant against “right-wing conspiracy,” implying Republican attacks.

Clinton has already directed Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez to be more aggressive in fund-raising and build a data-sharing program that can match Republicans who had used it brilliantly for Trump’s campaign in 2016.
