Hillary Clinton cried while reading a speech written in case she won the election
Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who was the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, cried when she read the speech she wanted to make if she won the presidential election. Clinton lost to Donald Trump in that presidential election.
“So, this was supposed to be the victory speech that I would give on election night in New York City on November 8, 2016,” Clinton said in a video recorded for educational platform MasterClass.
Clinton was moved to tears when she spoke about her mother, Dorothy, who Clinton said had a difficult childhood. She noted that her mother, who died in 2011, was able to give her “boundless love and support that she herself never received.
“I think about my mother every day,” the former secretary of state said, adding, remembering her mother, that she wished she had told her that her daughter would grow up to be president of the United States.
