Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, said she thinks former President Donald Trump will run for re-election in 2024, and if he wins, it "could be the end of our democracy."

"Especially if he had a Congress that would do his bidding, you will not recognize our country," Clinton said Sunday on "Today."

"If I were a betting person right now, I’d say Trump is going to run again. He seems to be setting himself up to do that, and if he’s not held accountable, then he gets to do it again," she said. "I think that could be the end of our democracy. Not to be too pointed about it, but I want people to understand that this is a make-or-break point. If he or someone of his ilk were once again to be elected president, and if especially if he had a Congress that would do his bidding, you will not recognize our country.”

She again lamented her 2016 loss and blamed it on the FBI Director James Comey, who reopened a probe into her emails shortly before the election. She also added that she feels bad she could not stop Trump.

"I tried to warn people... what he might do. I do think, but for Jim Comey and the stunt he pulled 10 days before the election, I would have won. I feel terrible about not stopping him and the people around him, but I feel like now everybody can see for themselves what kind of leader he is," she stated.
