Hillary Clinton Torches Trump’s ‘Despicable’ Actions in Searing Op-Ed Warning ‘Our Democracy is In Crisis’

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wrote a lengthy op-ed in The Atlantic slamming the first two years of the Trump administration, lamenting that her former opponent had done “so many despicable things that it can be hard to keep track.”

“I think that may be the point — to confound us, so it’s harder to keep our eye on the ball,” Clinton wrote. “The ball, of course, is protecting American democracy. As citizens, that’s our most important charge. And right now, our democracy is in crisis.”

Clinton criticized Trump’s detention of thousands of migrant children, his conspiracy theory about the death toll in Puerto Rico, and his unwillingness to protect the elections from foreign meddling.

But Clinton also pointed out that other Republicans had become just as reckless and radical as she urged Democrats to vote in the midterms.

“Whether it was abusing the filibuster and stealing a Supreme Court seat, gerrymandering congressional districts to disenfranchise African Americans, or muzzling government climate scientists, Republicans were undermining American democracy long before Trump made it to the Oval Office,” she wrote. “Now we must do all we can to save our democracy and heal our body politic.”
