Top Aide Says Hillary Clinton 'Least Surprised' She Lost Election to Trump
Months later, the left still seems to be recovering from the shock of Hillary Clinton losing to Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.
However, as it turns out, Clinton herself may have anticipated the election loss, despite all signs pointing to her victory.
In an interview with CBS News, Clinton's campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri said that although Clinton was upset about her loss, she wasn't too surprised by it.
"I think she's one of the people who is least surprised that she lost. ... Contrary to this view that she held onto this dream of being the first woman president, I think she came close to not running in 2016," Palmieri said.
Palmieri said Clinton eventually decided to run "because she thought she was the person who could best be president and that she was the Democrat that was best positioned to be able to win," as compared to Sen. Bernie Sanders.
