During an appearance on ABC’s “The View” on Monday, Clinton said, “If [Trump] wants to be the nominee he will be the nominee. I don’t think there’s any doubt about that. And I think that everybody else who is talking about it or considering it understands that.”
“It says volumes about the Republican Party today. That someone who has the record of attacking our own government, of lying to people about the biggest health crisis that we’ve had in over 100 years… is considered the leader because they’re all afraid of the mob that he has created and that he keeps energized,” she continued.

During an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Monday, Clinton said, “I will never be out of the game of politics. I’m not going to be running for anything.”
“I really feel like our democracy is at stake and there’s many reasons for that, some of them we saw on the screen, with the insurrection, some of them because of the revelations about Facebook that creates a world of disinformation instead of one that we can agree on what the facts are,” she added.
For his part, Trump has not said whether he is actually planning to run again. However, he told Fox News in September, “I don’t think we’re going to have a choice. It is disgraceful.”
The Washington Post reports that Trump’s advisers have dissuaded him from announcing a 2024 bid in the immediate future.
The Post added, “The arguments won Trump over, for the time being at least. Instead of a presidential campaign announcement, Trump, 75, has settled on a strategy of winks and nods. As some in his party worry, he is acting like a candidate for public office, and making clear he intends to be one again, without actually declaring so himself.”
