Hillary Clinton warns about Russian interference in 2024 election
Putin "can try to continue to damage and divide us internally, and he's quite good at it," says Clinton
Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, has issued a warning about Russian interference in the 2024 election.
"I fear that the Russians improve themselves to be quite adept at interfering, and if he has a chance, he'll do it again," she said Sunday on MSNBC.
"He [Putin] hates democracy. He particularly hates the West and he especially hates us. And he has determined that he can do two things simultaneously. He can try to continue to damage and divide us internally, and he's quite good at it," she also said.
Clinton said Putin didn't want to see her in the White House so he worked against her.
"So we are where we are, in part of the challenge is to continue to explain to the American public that, you know, the kind of leader Putin is, this authoritarian dictator who literally kills his opposition, kills journalists, poisons people who disagree with him, invades other countries, interferes with our election, that is part of the alternative we have to reject this in this election," she said.
"We have to reject authoritarianism, we have to reject a kind of creeping fascism almost, of people who are really ready to turn over their thinking, their votes to wannabe dictators. We can’t allow that to proceed," Clinton also said.
