Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton stated that she will reach out to Republican leaders if she is elected president. The former secretary of state told a group of reporters, “I certainly intend to reach out to Republicans and Independents, the elected leadership of the Congress, which you mentioned.”
She stated that she’ll reach out to everyone who didn’t vote for her to prove she is a president for everybody.
The statement took place on her plane returning from a two-day campaign in Florida. In route to New York, Clinton handed out cake she was given for her birthday and refused to be complacent despite the poll numbers.
She didn’t say if she would meet with Donald Trump if she won the election.
The two didn’t shake hands after the third and final debate that got heated. Clinton took jabs at Trump, but the oft blunt billionaire didn’t hold back from pointing out Clinton’s faults and questioning her past.
“We’re not taking anything for granted,” she said.
She reaffirmed that her campaign is full speed ahead, and will continue to make phone calls and knock on doors to reach as much voters as possible before November 8.
She took a light jab at Trump during her interview, stating that he was paying more attention to his business than his presidential campaign.
