Clinton posted a tweet calling Macron’s election a victory for “the world”
Hillary Clinton attempted to tie herself to French President-elect Emmanuel Macron’s runoff victory over far-right candidate Marine Le Pen on Sunday.
Clinton posted a tweet calling Macron’s election a victory for “the world” and a “defeat” to the hackers who released Macron’s emails to the public shortly before the election, but then turned the focus towards herself, claiming “the media says I can’t talk about that.” Clinton is known to have staffers carefully craft and edit her tweets before posting.
The tweet is the latest step in Clinton’s return to politics amid public speculation that she will run for president a third time in 2020.
While speaking at a televised women’s event last week, Clinton declaredherself a member of the anti-Trump “resistance” and blamed FBI Director Jim Comey and Russian interference for her loss to Donald Trump.
