Longtime Clinton Advisor Philippe Reines: Hillary Leaving Door Open on 2020 Run (VIDEO)
Hillary Clinton’s former aide Philippe Reines on Wednesday night told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that Hillary is leaving the door open for a 2020 run.
“She ran for president because she thought she would be the best president,” Reines said. “If she still thought that now, if she thought she had the best odds of beating Donald Trump, I think she would think about it long and hard.”
Tucker Carlson asked Reines, “She hasn’t foreclosed the possibility?”
“No, she has not” Reines said.
Reines added, “This is a huge if. But if she were jump in for whatever reason, and the party has moved someplace that she hasn’t, then she won’t get the votes. That’s the point of the primary. There are I guess still 19 people. There are a few that are in double digits. If she were to run, and people she’s too left, too right, too center — whatever you want to call it, that’s the beauty of it. They get to vote against whatever they want.”
“She’s not running because she has any anxiety about the Democratic field. She really likes a lot of the people running. She knows them well. She thought about some of them for her vice presidency. But there might be a reason that she would be the best person, not only to beat Donald Trump, but to govern after Donald Trump which is a part we don’t talk about much,” he said.
