When asked if she wanted to apologize to the American people for the email server snafu embroiling her campaign for President, Hillary Clinton said simply she regretted it had been “confusing.”
“At the end of the day, I’m sorry that this has been confusing to people and raised a lot of questions,” Clinton said during an exclusive interview Friday on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports.
She also admitted that setting up a private server “wasn’t the best choice.”
“You know, I was not thinking a lot when I got in. There was so much work to be done, we had so many problems around the world. I didn’t really stop and think, ‘what kind of email system will there be?’” Clinton told Mitchell.
When the conversation turned to GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, Clinton noted the former reality TV star is “going after so many people, from basketball players” to political opponents, a reference to Trump’s sophomoric response to an op-ed by former NBA player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar earlier this week.
Clinton went on to juxtapose her manner of speaking with Trump’s, saying while she conducts herself as is appropriate for someone seeking the nation’s highest office, the Republican billionaire is “the candidate of being against.”
“He’s great at innuendo and conspiracy theories and really defaming people,” she said of Trump’s brash manner. “Loose talks, threats, insults…They have consequences.”
