Former Secretary of state Hillary Clinton took the stage at a diversity conference in San Francisco on Tuesday making the most political comments since she lost the 2016 presidential election.
“There is no place I’d rather be than here with you,” Clinton said, then added: “Other than the White House.”
During her keynote address at the annual conference hosted by the Professional Business women of California, Clinton spoke mostly about women equality and chipped in criticism of President Donald Trump and the Republican Party here and there.
“Obviously the outcome of the election wasn’t the one I hoped for, worked for, but I will never stop speaking out for common sense benefits that will allow moms and dads to stay on the job,” Clinton said.
Clinton has been low-key apart from a few comments in public gatherings and tweets from her personal account since the elections. She, along with her husband former President Bill Clinton, attended Trump’s inauguration.
She called Republicans’ attempted replacement for the Affordable Care Act “a disastrous bill,” adding that the Trump administration has been “met with a wave of resistance” that indicates the protests against Trump’s policies are just getting started.
“During the question and answer session of her appearance, she grew incredulous at the GOP health care debate. “Really? Take away maternity care?” Clinton said. “Who do these people talk to?”
