Former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, has said that she is ready to “come out of the woods” and join the fight against President Donald Trump. At a St. Patrick’s Day event, Clinton told supporters that “I’m like a lot of my friends right now. I have a hard time watching the news, I’ll confess,” and that “I am ready to come out of the woods and to help shine a light on what is already happening around kitchen tables, at dinners like this.” She finished with a pledge to oppose Donald Trump.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
Clinton spoke at a St. Patrick’s Day dinner for roughly 20 minutes, beginning with stories of her visits to a local lake house long ago, and ending with a pledge to rejoin the political fight to oppose President Donald Trump, according to The New York Times.
Clinton retreated to her home in upstate New York after Trump won the election in November. Clinton has since largely remained outside of the political turmoil that dominated news coverage in the first days of the new administration.
The event was hosted by the Society of Irish Women, and included nearly 700 attendees. Group officials reported the turnout was much higher than when then-candidate Barack Obama spoke before the group in 2008.
