Hillary Clinton should have a press conference to announce she is suspending her presidential campaign. I can’t believe she’s even still trying to run. Usually candidates try to at least have some accomplishments, rather than a career of traveling on the taxpayer’s dime. Please comment below with your thoughts.
The Hill: Pressure is building on Hillary Clinton to hold a press conference as she seeks to wrap up the Democratic presidential nomination.
It’s been 180 days since Clinton’s last open press conference, a fact not lost on the members of the media who cover her, or on Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee.
CNN’s Jake Tapper broached the topic with the former secretary of State in an interview on Tuesday afternoon, just hours after Trump held a contentious 40-minute press conference where he berated the media for questioning his donations to veterans.
“It’s been something like five or six months since you’ve held an actual press conference, is that something you will remedy soon?” Tapper asked.
“I’m sure we will. I was shocked myself that I’ve done nearly 300 interviews [in 2016],” Clinton replied.
“I believe that we do and we should answer questions. Of course I’m going to, in many, many different types of settings.”
Clinton’s interview count likely includes the local interviews she has given ahead of primaries and caucuses, as well as nationally televised town halls and interviews on talk shows such as NBC’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” More
I am getting great credit for my press conference today. Crooked Hillary should be admonished for not having a press conference in 179 days.
