Clinton: 'I'm not going to run again'

Hillary Clinton in a new interview said she does not plan to run for president again but will continue her criticism of President Trump.

"No, I'm not going to run again," she told BBC Radio 4's "Woman's Hour" in comments aired on Tuesday, according to CNBC.

"I think I'm in a position where my voice will actually be magnified because I am not running," she said. "And there's a very good basis, as we watch Trump's support shrink, that people will say, 'Well, what she said was right, and now where do we go from here?'"

Her comments were aired after Trump tweeted on Monday that he wished Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, would run again.

"I was recently asked if Crooked Hillary Clinton is going to run in 2020? My answer was, 'I hope so!'" Trump wrote.

"Oh, I hope Hillary runs," he said later during a news conference. "Is she going to run? I hope. Hillary, please run again."

Clinton said in the new interview that she is working to make sure that "what happened in my election doesn't happen again."

"I'll also be raising money and support for candidates and causes I believe in," she said. "I'll be supporting the Democratic Party in the elections this year, next year and 2020."

Last month, Clinton said her career as an "active politician" was "over."

"I am done with being a candidate," the former senator and secretary of State told "CBS Sunday Morning."
