    Hillary Clinton: Let’s abolish Electoral College

    [ad_1]

    Nearly two years after losing to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton is calling for an amendment to the Constitution that would change how presidents are elected.

    When she made her concession speech, she said in an essay for the Atlantic published Monday, she had hoped that that “my fears for our future were overblown.”

    “They were not,” she declared, contending Trump “has sunk far below the already-low bar he set for himself in his ugly campaign.”

    “Exhibit A,” Clinton said, “is the unspeakable cruelty that his administration has inflicted on undocumented families arriving at the border, including separating children, some as young as eight months, from their parents.” Along with the policy, which also was carried out by the Obama administration, she cites “the president’s monstrous neglect of Puerto Rico” after Hurricane Maria, contending “his administration barely responded” and “some 3,000 Americans died.” READ MORE...
