Clinton: ‘The Republican Party Is Imploding’


Hillary Clinton claimed Wednesday that the Republican Party was "imploding" and that it frightens her.

The failed 2016 Democratic presidential candidate has been on a tour in Europe and the United States over the past month promoting her book What Happened, which delves into her election loss.

In the wake of President Donald Trump's feuds with Republican Sens. Jeff Flake (Ariz.) and Bob Corker (Tenn.), Clinton fretted that the GOP was becoming "captive" to far-right interests.

"There are a lot of things that I worry about, this is actually on my list of what I worry about. The Republican Party is imploding," Clinton said. "It is becoming a far-right captive party to ideological religious and commercial interests."

Clinton accused the Republican Party of "shrinking the electorate" and answering only to its donors. Clinton also said that the GOP would do whatever it could to hold onto power.

Despite Clinton's claim that the Republican Party was imploding, Republicans held onto all of the congressional seats it had held that were up for special elections in 2017. The Democratic National Committee is also having great difficulty fundraising and preparing for 2018 and 2020, while the Republicans have had record breaking fundraising months.
