Hillary Says She’s ‘Under Enormous Pressure’ To Run For President, But Doesn’t Say From Who

Chuck Ross on November 12, 2019

Hillary Clinton refused to rule out a 2020 presidential run on Monday, and claimed that she is “under enormous pressure” to do so.

“As I say, never, never, never say never,” Clinton said in an interview with BBC Radio 5 when she was asked about a future presidential bid.

Clinton’s remarks, which were first flagged by the Washington Examiner, will no doubt fuel speculation that the failed 2016 presidential candidate will jump into a crowded Democratic field in hopes of challenging President Trump.

“I will certainly tell you, I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it,” said the former secretary of state.

She added, “But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans.”

Clinton also said she thinks “all the time” about what could have been had she defeated President Trump in 2016.

Clinton has previously ruled out running again for president. She said on March 4 that she was “not running,” but planned to help Democrats in other ways. But she has increased her media visibility in recent weeks, fueling speculation that she is considering entering the Democratic field. Bill Clinton said on Oct. 31 that “she may or may not” run again.

Some presidential polls have suggested that Clinton would be considered a top-tier contender if she does decide to run. A poll conducted in New Hampshire between Oct. 29 and Oct. 31 had Clinton at 18 percent, trailing only Joe Biden, who polled at 19 percent.

  • I believe she is under pressure to run but not TO but rather FROM...... Delusional DRUNK OLD HAG all washed up go home.....Period....

  • enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it,” said the former secretary of state. I'll bet with the same people who counted the votes in 2016 they scrounged up at least 30 Fellatiocrats from the car trunks in minnesota

  • The pressure is just her perceiving the hammer is about to drop on her, so she will just decide to accuse prosecutors of picking on her because she is running for President, and all the deplorables, yadda yadda yadda.

  • I think lots of people did want her then, but they didn't know then what we all know now. Can't imagine that they would still want her.

  • Unbelievable! She is the one 'pressuring' herself because she can't stand not being totally in charge and doing 'quid pro quos' all day long.

  • Hillary, feel like feeling embarrassed again??........The only person that wants you to run is Barack Obama, so you can preserve his legacy(such as it is)........
