White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday it was "sad" that Hillary Clinton's final chapter in public life would be "defined by propping up book sales with false and reckless attacks."
A reporter asked if President Donald Trump would be reading Clinton's new election memoir entitled What Happened—released Tuesday—and what he thought of the excerpts released to date.

Sanders smiled at the question.
"Whether or not he's going to read Hillary Clintons' book, I am not sure, but I would think that he's pretty well-versed on what happened, and I think it's pretty clear to all of America," she said. "I think it's sad that after Hillary Clinton ran one of the most negative campaigns in history and lost, and the last chapter of her public life is going to be now defined by propping up book sales with false and reckless attacks."
Clinton has ripped into Trump for exhibiting "deplorable" behavior on the campaign trail, and in her book she describes being creeped out by his behavior during their town hall debate.
The book also lays out a number of other factors Clinton believes played into her surprising defeat.
She has stated she will never be a political candidate again.
