WASHINGTON—Nearly a year after Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton, the White House is criticizing the President’s former opponent for releasing a book on the 2016 race.
When asked if Trump intended to read Clinton’s new book, titled What Happened and released today, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that she was not sure.
“He’s pretty well versed on what happened,” Sanders said.
She then proceeded to criticize Clinton directly.
“I think it’s sad that after Hillary Clinton ran one of the most negative campaigns in history and lost … the last chapter of her public life is now going to be defined by propping up book sales with false and reckless attacks,” Sanders said.
What Happened has garnered headlines for Clinton’s frank perspective on last years race, including factors that she claims contributed to her loss, including progressive candidate Bernie Sanders and former FBI Director James Comey.
