Hillary Clinton phoned Barack Obama on election night after conceding defeat and told him: ‘I’m sorry’.

The Democratic Presidential candidate stepped into an anteroom for the conversation to apologize for losing to Donald Trump in a conversation which has never previously been reported.

As she took the call Clinton knew she had ‘let her country down’ and that Obama’s legacy lay ‘shattered at Donald Trump’s feet’, a new book reveals.

Minutes earlier Clinton had called Trump and suppressed ‘the anger that touched every nerve in her body’ as she conceded.
She said: ‘Congratulations, Donald. ‘I’ll be supportive of the country’s success and that means your success as president.’

The drama of Clinton’s election in the Peninsula Hotel in Manhattan is detailed in Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Election Campaign.

WNU Editor: First of many books .... and I suspect most (if not all of them) will be critical of the former Presidential candidate.

Probably the most underachieving candidate ever

The Dems had a choice Sanders and Victory or Clinton and Failure, so many people hated her not only on the right but on the left as well. Looks good on her the failure, if only they could put her in jail, that would be so nice.

"A book that is supposed to give us an inside look at Hillary Clinton's doomed campaign might ironically end up being more notable, despite its intentions, for its revelations about just how biased mainstream media reporters of that same campaign were."
