Hillary Clinton is Downplaying Trump's Victory to Keep Options Open for 2020 Mike Vance November 28, 2016 News Losing Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is downplaying Trump's victory to keep her options open for 2020. Surprising? No. This was first reported by Ron Fournier. Fournier has sources close to the Clintons that helped him with this report. Over the weekend, Hillary joined in the recount efforts. This announcement was made through her lawyer, Marc E Elias. The recount efforts were originally started by losing Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Elias backed Stein's efforts and suggested Hillary should follow Stein's recount efforts in Michigan and Pennsylvania. Fournier has spent a long time covering the Clintons. Decades, to be exact. This goes all the way back to when Bill Clinton was the governor of Arkansas. His series of tweets on Monday morning shed some light on the situation. Hillary Will Return Raising doubts about legitimacy of election, even w/out overturning result, is part of Clinton's plans to keep her options open for 2020 — Ron Fournier (@ron_fournier) November 28, 2016 people close to her disagree. Perhaps they're projecting. — Ron Fournier (@ron_fournier) November 28, 2016 sources close to her. You read it here first. — Ron Fournier (@ron_fournier) November 28, 2016 reporting — Ron Fournier (@ron_fournier) November 28, 2016 don't be afraid of reporting, Peter. Make some calls. You'll hear the same from her confidants. That is, if you have sources. — Ron Fournier (@ron_fournier) November 28, 2016 Since Hillary lost the election, she has been promoting herself as a gracious loser. She has placed herself hiking in the woods and going to the grocery store. You know, just living life like a normal person would. In reality, she has been scheming and plotting taking the presidency away from Trump ever since her loss went down on Election Night. Don't let Hillary fool you. She is not a gracious loser. She is plotting her return and is still in hopes of stealing the election from Donald Trump.
