During an interview on NBC's "Today" show, Gore was asked whether he had talked with Clinton since the election, as he understand what it's like to win the popular vote and lose the presidential election.

"Have you spoken to Secretary Clinton since the election, commiserated at all about that?" he was asked.

Gore said he has spoken to Clinton since the election.

"I suspect she'll be fine," he added.

"But our country, as I said earlier, is going to face some challenging months ahead."

In an interview earlier this month, Gore said the global community knows the U.S. is going through a "tough stretch" under Trump.

“The rest of the world, like many of us here in the U.S., are kind of looking at President Trump — and I know some people are really still all for him and everything — but the majority are trying to make sense of how this presidency is unfolding,” Gore told CBS News’s Lee Cowan on “CBS Sunday Morning.”
