Hillary Clinton disagrees with Trump's reason for ordering airstrikes on Syria

10 April 2017

"I hope that [the Trump administration] will recognise that we can not in one breath speak of protecting Syrian babies and in the next close America's doors to them", Ms Clinton told a crowd at an event for Annie's List.

The 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, 69, has stayed largely out of the public eye in recent months besides attending Trump's inauguration and a few other public events. "I don't want any Republican candidate to be subjected to what I was subjected to", Clinton said.

"I really believe that we should have and still should take out his air fields and prevent him from being able to use them to bomb innocent people and drop sarin gas on them", Clinton said Thursday in an interview with New York Times columnist Nick Kristof at the annual Women in the World Summit.

Hillary Clinton has called for an independent investigation into the involvement of Russian Federation into the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.

Clinton, who served as secretary of state under former President Barack Obama, weighed in less than a day after Trump authorised airstrikes against a Syrian regime target in retaliation for a chemical attack on civilians.

Curiously, she made that observation in response to a question about why white women didn't vote for her. In her first interview since she lost, Clinton said she "wrestles" with the fact that her gender did influence the results.

His main rival is Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, the former head of the African Union Commission and the president's ex-wife. Zuma also made changes to ten of the country's 35 ministries, including energy, police, and tourism.

Palestinian writer and activist İyad el-Baghdadi also told The Independent: "The logical position of someone who supports the United States strikes on Assad should be to limit his capacity for slaughter, and make him face effect".

"I'm only gonna say this once, though, you deserve to hear it 100 times".

While the former first lady and senator chalked up her electoral defeat to "lots of contributing factors" she admitted there were "certainly" things and she and her campaign could have done better.

Clinton said she has no intention of another run for public office and said she is writing a book that, in part, delves into what derailed her attempt to become America's first woman president.

"I am looking at doing interesting things - I don't think that will include ever running for office again", she added.

And when asked about her life, she said: "As a person, I'm okay".
