While the NY real estate mogul was busy "referencing a nostalgia that would give hope, comfort (and) settle grievances" for millions of Americans, Clinton said she was seeking to offer answers to that resentment, not fan the flames. "Millions of white people", Clinton replied.

"Millions of white people, yeah".

In the interview, Clinton recalled her telephone conversation with President Barack Obama after she conceded the election after midnight.

But though the pain of the Election Day loss still stings her months later, Clinton told Pauley that long walks in the woods, a "frenzy of closet cleaning" and her favorite white wine all helped her with the pain of defeat.

"President Trump was behaving in a deplorable manner", she said, citing the "Access Hollywood" tape as an example.

Indeed, in excerpts of her book that have leaked, Clinton takes swipes at many Democrats, including rivals like Sen. And, you know, my share of Chardonnay. She felt "directionless and sad". As Clinton was explaining how candidate Trump played to the "millions of people who were upset about gains that were made by others", Pauley finished Clinton's thought and blamed it on "millions of white people".

"But I am not done with politics because I literally believe that our country's future is at stake", she said.

In the "CBS News Sunday Morning" interview, Clinton echoed that line.

Though the interview did not mention Clinton's perspective on the 2016 Democratic primary, many Democrats have privately and publicly grated at the release of the former candidate's book, noting that it reopens numerous intraparty fights that Democrats have been attempting to put behind them since the election.
