Clinton jokes that she thought about leaving US after Trump won

Hillary Clinton joked Monday that she thought about leaving the country after President Trump beat her in the 2016 election.

The former Democratic presidential nominee, speaking in New Zealand during the tour for her book “What Happened,” said she had gotten some offers to move to the nation after the election.

“I must say I really did appreciate the offers. Gave them some thought,” Clinton joked. “But I’m going to stay put because we have work to do in my country as well.”

Clinton has been promoting her book detailing her campaign and election loss over the past several months.

Clinton has used the platform to speak out against Trump and his election win.

She was criticized earlier this year for saying that she won in parts of the country that were moving forward, while his campaign was “looking backwards.” The remarks were compared to her damaging “basket of deplorables” comments from the campaign, which many found insulting.

Clinton later clarified, saying she “meant no disrespect.”
