Hillary Clinton rules out running for US president in 2020

Hillary Clinton has ruled out running for the White House in 2020.

But the former US secretary of state vowed she is ‘not going anywhere’.

The former first lady ruled out another campaign during an interview with New York TV station News12 .

Mrs Clinton, who lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump, said: ‘I’m going to keep on working and speaking and standing up for what I believe.

‘I want to be sure that people understand I’m going to keep speaking out. I’m not going anywhere.

‘What’s at stake in our country, the kind of things that are happening right now are deeply troubling to me.’

Mrs Clinton’s comments put to rest speculation she was considering a 2020 bid.

She added: ‘We have to work really, really hard to make our case to the American people, and I’m going to do everything I can to help the Democrats win back the White House.

However, when asked if she would ever run for any elected office again – including governor or mayor of New York – Mrs Clinton said ‘I don’t think so.’

‘I care deeply about the future of New York and so, again, I’m going to do what I can to help support candidates and causes that I think are continuing to make New York a better and better place.’
