The day after Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, she was asked whether she believed the US had to get “out of the way” to protect democracy.
But the answer to that question is no.
“It’s too early to say, but it’s clear the president-elect has a different vision for America,” she told reporters.
“We’ve got to get out of the ways that the president has set out to destroy democracy,” she said.
“I think we need to do more than simply react to that.
We have to actually build a better democracy and a better world for all people, and I think we can do that.”
The US election has changed the way the country looks at its democracy, said Jill Stein, who is running for president on the Green Party ticket.
“What I find interesting is that there’s this sense that this is a country that’s under attack, and we’re not being attacked,” Stein told RT’s Andrew Kaczynski.
“So I think it’s important to be honest about what’s at stake.
It’s not just about one election.
It could be the next one, and there could be other elections going on, and it could be even another election that has very little to do with the election at all.
So it’s not a one-off event, it’s a multi-year process.
She said it was not a time to focus on just one election, but to “do the hard work” of making the US more “democratic”.””
There’s so much to be done,” Stein said.
She said it was not a time to focus on just one election, but to “do the hard work” of making the US more “democratic”.
“It is not a good time to be focusing on the election because we are still at war,” she added.
“The next election, 2020, is going to be critical to making that happen,” she concluded.
