Twice-failed presidential candidate and former first lady Hillary Clinton told CNN’s Christine Amanpour Tuesday that “civility can start again” when Democrats take back control of the House and Senate. Until then, she argued, all bets are off when dealing with Republicans.
“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” she claimed. “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”
Clinton cited her own treatment at the hands of Republicans, claiming she was targeted by “lies” and they were driven by a “lust for power.”
