She insisted that if FBI director, James Comey had not put doubts in the minds of Americans, she would have won the election.

“If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president,” Clinton said.

“I take absolute personal responsibility. I was the candidate, I was the person who was on the ballot. I am very aware of the challenges, the problems, the shortfalls that we had.

“I was on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me and got scared off.

“The reason I believe we lost were the intervening events in the last 10 days.”

At a point in the interview, Amanpour interview then joked that the President would soon tweet about the comment, to which Clinton said, “Fine. Better than the interfering in foreign affairs. If he wants to tweet about me than I am happy to be the diversion because we have lot of things to worry about. He should worry less about the election and my winning the popular vote than doing some other things that would be important for the country.

“Yes, I do think it played a role. I think other things did as well.

“I am now back to being an activist citizen and part of the resistance.”
