In a recent interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed her full support for President Biden’s bid for reelection.
“I’m genuinely impressed by the achievements of the current administration and the team they’ve assembled,” Clinton remarked. “I wholeheartedly back the reelection of individuals who have shown results. Our nation truly needs that.”
Hillary Clinton expressed concerns on Sunday about potential interference from Russian President Vladimir Putin in the upcoming 2024 elections.
Speaking on MSNBC’s “Inside with Jen Psaki,” the former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee emphasized, “The Russians have shown their skill at meddling, and I’m concerned Putin might attempt it once more.” Clinton believes there isn’t enough discussion in the U.S. about Russia’s influence on American elections, suggesting that Putin has “supporters and facilitators within our borders.”
She highlighted that some Americans underestimate Putin’s threat, with a few even aligning with his viewpoints. Clinton further cautioned about the rise of authoritarian tendencies in the U.S., urging the public to “stand against” such ideologies.
She elaborated, “We must help the American people understand the kind of leader Putin truly is—an authoritarian ruler who eliminates his rivals, targets journalists, and poisons dissenters. We must stand firm against such leadership styles in our elections. It’s crucial to resist authoritarianism and the subtle shift towards a mindset that surrenders individual thought and choices to potential autocrats.”
It’s worth noting that intelligence agencies previously determined that Russia’s involvement in the 2020 elections aimed to undermine Clinton’s candidacy in favor of Republican Donald Trump. The Senate Intelligence Committee later confirmed these conclusions.
Reflecting on the past, Clinton mentioned that Putin’s strong opposition to her campaign was likely because “he didn’t want me in the Oval Office.”
