Former Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton added to the chorus of President Donald Trump’s critics of his recent summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, which she called “alarming on many levels."
Clinton, who’s maintained a very public profile since her 2016 loss that’s rankled even some Democrats, spoke at an Ozy Festival panel discussion in New York City on Saturday. During a question and answer session, the former Secretary of State said that “the great mystery is why this president has not spoken up for our country, and we saw this most clearly in this recent meeting with Putin.”
In a move that drew criticism from even within Trump’s circle, the president met with Putin alone--something Clinton criticized in her appearance. She said that each time she met with Putin or President Barack Obama, there were always note-takers present to make certain “there is no mistake on what was said.”
