What Happened is the new best-selling novel by former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton that outlines exactly what happened during the 2016 presidential election.
Roland Martin explained that during the election, African-Americans were not seeing Black surrogates on radio and television. He noted that it was very difficult to get her on Black radio and television. He asks Clinton what her experience was with those kind of complaints.
“I am so convinced that everything could have had an impact on turnout and I regret and as I told you backstage and told you over and over again that it’s inexplicable to me. I have no explanation for you, ” she replied. “I can tell you that we had a lot of very active outreach that did go on across the country. But I recognized and certainly acknowledged that there wasn’t the level of involvement and participation that I had hoped for.”
Ultimately Clinton believes that, “The weaponization of information was a tool in trying to suppress voters,” as well as th the last-minute FBI investigation.
The interview also talks about the issue of health care, voter suppression, campaign momentum and the direction President Trump has taken the country.
