On Tuesday afternoon, Hillary Clinton was a guest of the Women for Women International Luncheon in New York City. During the event, Clinton had a conversation with Christiane Amanpour. The two discussed a number of issues including the Donald Trump administration, a potential conflict with North Korea, and the 2016 presidential election. While Clinton accepted the blame for her loss, she said that there were a number of other factors including the letter from FBI Director James Comey and Russian hacking of the emails of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary for America Campaign Director John Podesta.
Clinton said she would have won the election if it had not been for the Comey letter and Wikileaks in late October adding, “If the election had been held on October 27, I’d be your president, and it wasn’t. It was on October 28.” Clinton did not deflect all of the blame saying that her campaign made mistakes. “I was the candidate, I was the person who was on the ballot and I am very aware of the challenges, the problems, the shortfalls that we had,” she admitted. Clinton vowed to remain active in politics as a citizen and urged everyone to do the same. Watch a video from the event below.

President Barack Obama returned to Ohio Tuesday for a campaign event in Columbus. During the event, Obama spoke about what is at stake in this election saying that “this week will decide the future of this country we love.” Obama spoke about a number of Hillary Clinton’s platform points and how they will be beneficial to Ohioans and Americans across the country. He contrasted Clinton’s plans to those proposed by Donald Trump and attacked him for his divisive comments and his statements about women saying, “If you disrespected women before you were elected, you will disrespect women once you’re president.” Obama went on to say that Clinton is the best person for the job. “Hillary Clinton is consistently treated differently than just about any other candidate I’m seeing out there. Has she made mistakes? Of course. So have I. But she is a fundamentally good and decent person who knows what she’s doing and would be an outstanding president,” he said. He urged everyone to get out and vote on November 8th for Hillary Clinton and Democrats down the ballot. Watch a video of the rally below.
