Hillary Clinton appeared on television on Sunday to promote her latest political thriller State of Terror. Clinton admitted it is inspired by former President Donald Trump.

She accused Trump in her third interview with this month of “masterminding” the Capitol Riot on January 6.

After repeatedly calling Trump’s potential 2024 ticket a threat, Clinton has been fueling rumors about Clinton trying to test the waters with her own re-election campaign. 

Fareed Zakaria (CNN) asked this morning about Trump’s claims in her latest novel.

Clinton stated, “Having experienced that presidency, I knew that when it was time to create a political thriller, with Louise Penny as my friend, that I would use the realities that we have all witnessed,” adding, “It’s a great thriller.”

She stated that the ex-president, to whom she lost in 2016, despite having won the popular vote, was a danger to the country.

Clinton gave her third television interview in two weeks on Sunday, fueling rumors that she's testing the waters of a potential 2024 comeback

Clinton did her third TV interview in two week’s time on Sunday. This fuelled rumors about Clinton trying out the waters for a 2024 comeback.

Clinton stated that he believes our democracy has been under constant attack by former President, who orchestrated the attack on the Capitol and continues to spread the false accusation, 2020 being rigged against him.

She said, “I believe he poses an immediate and clear danger to the United States.”

Clinton said her novel is based on the Trump presidency

Clinton stated that her novel was based upon the Trump presidency

The book seems to also draw from her personal experiences. Clinton stated that the protagonists of the novel are “two women of a particular age” — her friend and the Secretary of State.

Clinton, before she ran for the White House in 2016, was the former Secretary of States under Barack Obama. However her legacy in that position was marred in 2012 by the Benghazi attack in which a US diplomat to Libya and foreign service officer were killed. 

It is written at the inauguration of a new president. Within minutes of the opening, three European cities experience deadly explosions. 

They are now on an extended journey to unravel the mystery behind who was responsible for the blasts. The suspect is thought to have been a Pakistani arms dealer.  

Clinton’s book is well-received and many believe that her inspiration came from real life. After losing to plan his return, the former president was described as a one term leader.

His personality was described as being vengeful, ignorant and charismatic. He demanded loyalty from everyone who worked in his administration. 

She also accused Trump of 'masterminding' the Capitol attack on January 6 (seen here riling up supporters at his White House Stop the Steal rally shortly before some of them stormed the Capitol)

Trump was also charged with her’masterminding the Capitol Attack on January 6, 2017 (see here, riling supporters at the White House Stop the Steal rally just before the storming of the Capitol).

She's not the first Trump critic to claim he has direct responsibility for what his supporters did

Trump’s critics are not the only ones to say he is directly responsible for his supporters’ actions.

Clinton had earlier in the interview urged fellow Democrats to “zero in” on Americans’ daily concerns prior to the 2022 elections and charged Republicans with trying to govern fearfully.

They do an excellent job of scaring people. They don’t deliver for people except for I guess in an emotional way, when people are frustrated they feed conspiracy theories, they make up stuff, but they don’t deliver for people,’ Clinton said of the opposing party. 

Trump gave a prerecorded interview to Fox News, where he stated that he’d welcome the challenge of Clinton for 2024.

When asked if a rematch is possible, he replied, “I hope so, I mean, that’s what I meant.” 

Trump charged her with cheating during the 2016 election. 

‘But look – the woman’s crooked as can be,’ he said. He said, “She cheated in election. They spy on me campaign.”
