The Hill's Amie Parnes and Sidewire's Jonathan Allen write in "Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign" that on the night of the 2016 election, Clinton looked through the draft of her concession speech.

Chief strategist Jake Sullivan said: “Everything you said, we’re going to do in the speech."
 
"But you have been saying for many months that he’s temperamentally unfit and that he would be dangerous, and if you meant it, you should say it," he told her.
 
"And you made a case that all these people’s rights and safety are in danger— if you meant that, you should say it.”
