White House Press Secretary Calls Hillary Clinton Book Tour 'Sad'

It details Clinton's time on the campaign trail as well as the reasons she believes she lost to Trump in November.

After an unexpected loss, she admits that she hadn't prepared for this scenario.

"I had known Donald Trump for years but had never imagined he'd be standing on the steps of the Capitol taking the oath of office as President of the United States", she writes in the first chapter.

"Because there's no doubt in my mind that Putin wanted me to lose and wanted Trump to win", she added.

Clinton, often described as a cold calculator, has also recognized the bad void she felt after her surprise defeat, and this despite a wide lead in the popular vote. "And so there I was, on the platform, you know, feeling like an out-of-body experience". I didn't know what to think about it because I knew there was nothing there, ' she said. Already, excerpts from the book have surface online.

According to Clinton, there are no more presidential campaigns left in her system, but her life as a public servant and her government work is far from over.

Former Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Communications Director Hope Hicks, and Jared Kushner hire Josh Raffel are also being interviewed, New York Magazine reported last week.

A Rasmussen Reports survey showed that 61 percent of voters believe "It's time for [Clinton] to retire", compared to just 30 percent who said she still had a future in politics.

"What an opportunity [he had] to say, 'OK, I'm proud of my supporters, but I'm the president of all Americans.' That's not what we heard at all".

Trump later fired Comey.

Trump has denied that he or any members of his team colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Clinton does plan to stay involved in national politics, just not as an "active politician" who may launch a campaign.

Lauer asked if Clinton believed that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation, but Clinton deferred to the investigation now underway by a special federal prosecutor. "This is her most personal memoir yet", Clinton's publisher Simon and Schuster said in a statement describing the book. I couldn't feel, I couldn't think.

Clinton has given several interviews to talk about the book and the election, though none on live TV, and on Tuesday signed hundreds of copies of the book at a Barnes & Noble in Manhattan. In the end, we decided it would be better to just let it go and try to move on.
