The Democratic candidate from 2016 also compared members of the GOP to a cult.
Democrats will reach an agreement on President Joe Biden’s agenda in the Senate, former Secretary of State and Democratic candidate from 2016 Hillary Clinton said Monday about “The View,” but legislation like the $ 3.5 trillion infrastructure bill is “delayed.”
“I think they’ll get a deal,” Clinton said. “They have to go into the details – so what would go into the bill that would fit into the amount they are willing to spend – and I actually think they’ll get a deal. But it’s going to be a roller coaster. , and it will not be pleasant. “
Sens. Joe Manchin, DW.Va., and Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., Are at a dead end with the rest of the Democratic Assembly when it comes to adopting Biden’s “Build Back Better Act,” an spending plan to fund a number of social programs.
“The bill has as much support for families who have been through such a terrible time and who deserve support. And things that are a long time ago, like paid family leave and support for quality childcare, like other countries that can like us have done for years and we are far behind in catching up, “she said.
She also compared some members of the Republican Party to members of a cult citing the party’s embrace of “Big Lie” that the election was stolen. She said she believes the country is in the midst of a constitutional crisis.
“It gives me absolutely no satisfaction to say this, because I think we are in a very dangerous, persistent, high-level attack on the legitimacy of our government and the election of our president. It is clear that our former president is not only standing behind it, he encouraged it, he encouraged it, and he continues to do so, “Clinton said, referring to the January 6 uprising in the Capitol.
New report from ABC News’ Jonathan Karl’s book “Betrayal” describes Trump’s reaction to the crowd. He boasted of the size of the crowd, and he argued with aides who wanted him to urge his supporters to stop riots.
Combined with misinformation shared on Facebook and other social media, Clinton said, “We are still in the midst of a concerted, well-funded effort to undermine American democracy.”
The former senator in New York told “The View” hosts that she hopes Congress can come together in a two-way way to adopt some kind of rules when it comes to Facebook and the access children have to social media.
“I hope it might be on a bipartisan basis that we can come up with appropriate rules and changes that will chew for this overwhelming power, a company like Facebook has, to really try to get the good it has,” he says. she added.
A Senate subcommittee heard last Tuesday from a whistleblower claiming that Facebook manipulated content that it knew was harmful to young users, a day after the social media giant experienced a seemingly independent massive disruption. She claimed blatant disregard from Facebook leaders when they found out that their platforms could have detrimental effects on foreign democracies and children’s mental health. Facebook has disputed her allegations.
