Hillary Clinton: Large Portion of US 'Uneasy,' 'Angry' About Women Seeking Power

Australia has been closely monitoring China and its efforts to sway policy and expand its military presence in the Pacific region.

Speaking in Melbourne at the Growth Faculty's "An Evening with Hillary Rodham Clinton" speaker series, which was attended by Business Insider, Clinton raised the urgency of fighting interference from China.

Hillary Rodham Clinton - the first female U.S. presidential candidate chosen to run by a majority party.

Mrs Clinton said repeated calls for the USA to use a "steady hand" when it comes to talks with North Korea about dismantling its nuclear weapons development and testing program.

During an interview with Australia's first female prime minister Julia Gillard this week, Hillary Clinton once again rehashed the 2016 election and brought back one of her favorite excuses for her unexpected loss - sexism.

And that's just one of the 17 incredible things she said last night.

Speaking in Sydney on the second and final night of her fleeting visit to Australia to promote her book about her failure to defeat Donald Trump in the 2016 USA presidential election, Mrs Clinton warned of the "rising tide of illiberalism", particularly in Asia.

On "The Story", Martha MacCallum and her panel discussed the latter remark, noting that it may have been a veiled shot at Trump and adding that the president also mocked the looks of a conservative woman in former HP CEO Carly Fiorina. "I pointed out that you can't drown a witch", noted Gillard, who served as prime minister from 2010 to 2013.

In the case of China, Clinton said: "This is an urgent problem and one we must confront immediately and together".

I don't care what side of the political aisle you might be on, in either Australia or the United States.

'This is bigger than one candidate, one election or even one country, ' she said.

Hillary Clinton warned Australia and other democracies Monday to be on guard against growing interference in their domestic politics by China and Russian Federation.

In December, Australia's Prime Minister proposed banning foreign political donations, citing "disturbing reports about Chinese influence".
