Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonDemocrats bristle as Hicks appears for daylong Capitol Hill testimony Democrats bristle as Hicks appears for daylong Capitol Hill testimony Trump: 'So sad' Democrats are putting Hope Hicks 'through hell' MORE appeared to swipe at the Trump administration on Thursday, saying she's "pretty worried" about recent events in the U.S.

When asked how she was doing during a segment at the Women in the World Summit, Clinton responded, "You know what, I'm doing pretty well all things considered."

"I'll put it this way: As a person I'm OK, as an American I'm pretty worried," Clinton said. "I think I'll take off my person hat and put on my citizen hat and there's a lot to be concerned about."


Clinton has been making her way back into the spotlight following the election, but has made relatively few public speeches. 

On Thursday, she declined to mention President Trump by name but weighed in on several issues confronting his administration, including potential military action in Syria following a deadly chemical attack this week and continued questions about Russian meddling in last year's election. 

Clinton said it was "somewhat gratifying" to see the GOP fail to pass its bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare last month, while also panning Russia's intervention in the campaign.

"You know, the aftermath of the election was so devastating and everything that has come to light in the days and weeks since have also been troubling," she said.

"I had to make up my mind that 'yes' I was going to get out of bed, and 'yes' I was going to go for a lot of long walks in the woods and I was going to see my grandchildren and spend time with my family and friends," she said.

The Women in the World Summit is a weeklong event that was hosted in New York this year by The New York Times and included speeches from Clinton, actress Scarlett Johansson and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
