This week, Hillary Clinton dispelled the rumors that she might be running for presidential office again in 2024.
The 2016 Democratic candidate who faced former President Trump, told the Financial Times in an interview published Friday that there were no plans to run for office in 2024.
“No, out of the question,” Clinton told the Financial Times. “First of all, I expect Biden to run. He certainly intends to run. It would be very disruptive to challenge that.”
Clinton made her failed bid for President in 2016 and unsuccessfully sought the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008. Another bid for the office seems like it would be a wasted effort.
Clinton made sure to say that she was terrified of the possibility of a Republican taking back the White House in 2024. She noted that the possibility was “so frightening.”
Out of that fear, Clinton said she would not do anything to hurt the Democrats’ chances in 2024. She continued to repeat her ridiculous claims tied to the events of January 6.
“We are standing on the precipice of losing our democracy, and everything that everybody else cares about then goes out the window,” Clinton said.
“Look, the most important thing is to win the next election,” she said. “The alternative is so frightening that whatever does not help you win should not be a priority.”
The former secretary of state speculated that former President Donald Trump would run again “if he can,” noting the $130 million he has raised to organize campaigns.
“I don’t know who will challenge him in the Republican primary,” Clinton said.
While President Biden has signaled he plans to run again, stating that it is a certainty if Trump announces his bid for re-election. However, many members of his own party have recently begun to show concern for the aging President’s ability to lead another term in the Oval Office.

Hillary was not alone in her expression of fear this week. Her husband, former President Bill Clinton offered similar sentiments during a television appearance earlier this week.
