Hillary Clinton: United States "doesn't deserve Trump"

During the event over the weekend, Clinton added that she doesn't believe America deserved to have Trump as a president.

But when asked if the Russians have anything compromising on Trump, Clinton said, "We'll find out".

Clinton, who lost to Trump in the 2016 presidential election, then explained her belief Trump won because he ran a campaign unlike any other that had come before.

This isn't the first time she's insulted Trump supporters, in 2016, she called her opponents supporters "deplorables", a comment that has dogged her since.

Clinton answered questions in front of a crowd in Mumbai on Saturday and was asked if voters deserve the government they elect. "You know, 'You didn't like black people getting rights?" She played up the states that supported her as more economically advanced than the states that voted for Trump, calling them "dynamic" and "moving forward".

She went on: "But what the map doesn't show you is that I won the places that represent two-thirds of America's gross domestic product".

It's hard not to read Clinton's comments as an argument that her votes were more valuable - or at least more productive - than were Trump's.

Clinton then told a story from the second debate between her and Trump, a town hall-style debate. She seems to say Trump was providing an outlet for these people.

She made clear later in the discussion that she did not know where the special counsel's investigation into Russian election meddling and possible coordination with Trump's team is likely to lead.

Relying heavily on a member of her entourage for support, Clinton slipped and almost fell.
