CNN White House correspondent Jeff Zeleny reported Sunday that Hillary Clinton hasn’t ruled out making another bid for the White House in 2020.
“I’m told by three people that as recently as this week, she was telling people that look, given all this news from the indictments, particularly the Roger Stone indictment, she talked to several people, saying ‘look, I’m not closing the doors to this,'” Zeleny said during a roundtable on CNN’s “Inside Politics.”
But as usual the media and a lot on social media were too quick to believe the hype.
Is Hillary Clinton running for president in 2020?
John Podesta, Hillary Clinton‘s former campaign chairman on Tuesday put a stop to the speculation that Clinton may seek another White House bid in 2020, calling the idea “media catnip” and stressing that Hillary “is not running.”
“She says she’s not running for president,” Podesta said on CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront.”
“I take her at her word. She’s not running for president,” he said.
Podesta added that Democrats already “have a lot of great candidates out there right now.”
“I think the Democratic primary will be a spirited one with a lot of great ideas coming forward,” he said. “I think she would’ve been a great president, but that’s in the past.”
So that’s all folks, Hillary Clinton isn’t making another run for the White House in 2020.
