Hillary Clinton targeted President Trump in her speech Tuesday at the Professional Businesswomen of California conference in San Francisco.

Clinton, who joked that she was “thrilled to be out of the woods,” did not mention the president by name but made clear who she was referring to, according to the Associated Press. 

“There’s no place I’d rather be than here with you — other than the White House.” 

{mosads}Clinton referenced Trump’s characterization of America in his inauguration speech and jabbed at his administration’s policies.

“Where some see a dark vision of carnage, I see a light shining on creativity and opportunity,” she said.

Clinton referred to Republicans’ failed attempt to pass a bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare, saying, “When this disastrous bill failed, it was a victory for all Americans.”

“We will have to fight back twice as hard. Not for the sake of politics, but because these are bad policies that will hurt people and take our country in the wrong direction,” she said.

Clinton also vowed to be present in public life and part of the “resistance,” encouraging her supporters to: “Resist, insist, persist, enlist.”

“I’ll be right there with you every step of the way,” she added. She called her “mantra” something that “pops into your head when you take a lot of long walks in the woods.”
