The comment comes as many conflicting messages revolve around whether Clinton will pursue another run at the White House in 2020.

Clinton herself said in late October that “I’d like to be president,” adding that she would not think about a possible run until after the midterm elections. Mark Penn, a former adviser to the Clintons, wrote in The Wall Street Journal in November that “You can expect her to run for president once again” and Clinton has refused to rule out the possibility in interviews.

However, several aides and confidants told The Hill in October that she would not make another bid for president

“She’s more likely to win Powerball,” Philippe Reines, Clinton’s longtime adviser, told The Hill.
