Ever since Election Day, American politics has been turned upside down with the presidency of Donald Trump. After almost two months on the sidelines, former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has decided to speak out.

Clinton on Trump

Following the re-election of Barack Obama in 2012, the consensus was that Hillary Clinton was going to run in 2016, and was considered the favorite to head into the White House. Clinton stepped down in her role as Secretary of State, further fueling speculation that she would throw her name in the running. As primary election kicked off and it soon became obvious that Clinton was going to become the party's nominee, her election appeared like a sure thing once Donald Trump was nominated for the Republicans.

However, after a controversial campaign marred by allegations of Russian interference, Trump picked up the win and the Clinton's dreams of returning to the White House were crushed. As reported by the New York Times on March 18, Clinton refuses to remain silent.

On Friday night, Hillary Clinton celebrated St. Patrick's Day with the Society of Irish Women, where she shared dinner with 700 guests in Pennsylvania. As part of her time at the event, Clinton addressed those in attendance, and remarked about the current state of the election.

"I'm like a lot of my friends right now," Hillary Clinton told those attending the event.

"I have a hard time watching the news, I’ll confess," she continued, in a reference to the media's coverage of Donald Trump and his presidency. However, for those who wish to see the Clintons silenced, it doesn't appear like they will be getting their wish. "I am ready to come out of the woods and to help shine a light on what is already happening around kitchen tables, at dinners like this," Clinton said.

Mayor run?

With Hillary Clinton back in the spotlight, rumors of a return to politics have increased. While the idea of the former senator from New York making a third run at the White House is unknown, speculation now surrounds a potential run for mayor in New York City, though Clinton has yet to offer a comment on the issue as of press time.
