Dem Senator: Clinton's Exit From Politics Way Past Due

Democrat Senator Heidi Heitkamp not a fan of Hillary Clinton

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), who's currently facing a tough reelection bid in a state won by President Trump in the 2016 election, said this week that former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's exit from politics is way past due.

In an interview Tuesday, KFGO radio host Joel Heitkamp, the senator's brother, asked when Clinton would "ride off into the sunset," as he remarked on a recent speech Clinton gave in which she said the U.S. "did not deserve" President Trump's victory in the 2016 election.

"I don't know, not soon enough, I guess," she responded.

Pressed again by the host, Heidi Heitkamp said: "Not soon enough."

Clinton in her recent comments said during a trip to India that she won "the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward. And [Trump's] whole campaign, 'Make America Great Again,' was looking backwards." She suggested that Trump's supporters in the parts of the country where he saw the most support had racist and discriminatory attitudes.

"I mean, she's bashing the middle of the country and my state again. I don't need her to do that," the KFGO host remarked on Tuesday.

"Yeah, I know," Heitkamp replied.
