Hillary Clinton Breaks Down Giving Victory Speech She Had Planned For 2016 But Couldn’t GIve Because She Lost

Sharing is caring!

Hillary Clinton got emotional when she finally got to deliver the big victory speech she had planned for the 2016 election. Things didn’t go her way that night but now she is trying to relive the never was moment by giving the speech in her new money making venture with Masterclass. (See Video Below)

She is giving a masterclass on the power of resilience and spoke to NBC’s Willie Geist to promote it. “What compelled you to sit down and revisit that speech?” Geist asked Hillary. Clinton said:

“I didn’t, as you know, write a concession speech because even though we had a lot of bumps in those last 10 days, I still thought we could pull it out. So I worked on a speech that was really about my journey.

“I wanted to be as helpful as I could to the viewers and to the process of being in a MasterClass.

“As a way of making it clear that, yes, I would be the first woman president,” said Clinton of her planned victory speech.

“But I, like everybody, stood on the shoulders and lived the lives and experiences of those who came before us.”

Hillary then read the speech she never gave because she lost the election. She said getting emotional:

“I’ve never shared this with anybody. I’ve never read this out loud. But it helps to encapsulate who I am, what I believe in, and what my hopes were for the kind of country that I want for my grandchildren, and that I want for the world, that I believe in that is America at its best.

“I’m going to face one of my most public defeats head-on by sharing with you the speech I had hoped to deliver if I had won the 2016 election.

“I dream of going up to her, and sitting down next to her, taking her in my arms, and saying ‘Look at me, listen to me, you will survive, you will have a good family of your own, and three children, and as hard as it might be to imagine, your daughter will grow up and become the President of the United States.

“I am sure of this as anything I have ever known:

“America is the greatest country in the world.

“And from tonight going forward, together, we will make America even greater than it has ever been, for each and every one of us. 

“Thank you, God bless you, and may God bless America.”
