UNHINGED: Hillary Compares Trump to 'TRAIN WRECK' in New Zealand

Adjust Comment Print

Hillary Clinton is in New Zealand, visiting the country to give a talk in Auckland.

Ms Clinton is in New Zealand as part of her speaking tour, organised by Australian business event provider The Growth Faculty, where she shares her experience of becoming the first woman nominated for the presidency by a major party in a United States election. "Well those days are over, and I am so pleased that I can pull the curtain back in the book on the unprecedented election - the first reality TV election in American history", Clinton said.

"Hillary's speech was preceded by a meeting with New Zealand's left-wing feminist prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, who won her office last September - despite coming second in the popular vote - by allying with the Populist-nationalist New Zealand First" party.

Clinton then joked that she received invitations to move permanently to New Zealand.

"When it comes to the visits of those who are not guests of the government I make sure that they are treated appropriately", the 37-year-old politician said after an hour-long breakfast with the former first lady and presidential candidate. "But as an American, I'm concerned".

She praised New Zealand for recently electing its third female prime minister, Jacinda Ardern.

Clinton said although she doesn't plan to run against Trump in 2020, she believes he could be defeated since "we now know a lot more about the kind of campaign he runs and the kind of candidate he is". "The media didn't know how to cover him". "So, the press didn't do the job it should have..."

The media didn't do their job because "it was like they were watching a vehicle wreck or train wreck all the time and they couldn't take their eyes away".

The room started to laugh at her comment.

"I think for both men and women we're going through a sea change in relationships; in the workplace, in the family, in public arenas".

In a discussion with former prime minister Dame Jenny Shipley, Mrs Clinton said it was important to share her experiences with other women, who still faced barriers when stepping up to lead.

"And so perhaps if I had been willing to risk that - it was a big risk because I could just see the headlines afterwards: "She can't take it, she blows up, she attacks Trump". She told Stuff Ardern's win was a "shot of optimism" for her after she lost the presidential election.
