As part of her campaign to promote the sales of a series of videos, Hillary Clinton shared a clip of herself reading from the “victory” speech she never delivered following the 2016 presidential election loss to President Donald Trump.

That was the campaign, of course, in which Barack Obama was briefed on Clinton’s plans to tie Trump to Russia, and that effort eventually involved the FBI, CIA, Department of Justice, White House and more.

It essentially never ended, with some extremists still claiming to this day there was evidence of the debunked claims, even though criminal indictments have been brought against several of those involved in the scheme.

At National File, a report explained Clinton “fought back tears as she read the five-year-old victory speech she had planned to delivere before being soundly defeated by 45th President Donald Trump in the 2016 election.”

She read part of the speech during an interview that was to promote her videos, which she plans to sell online.

“I didn’t, as you know, write a concession speech because even though we had a lot of bumps in those last 10 days, I still thought we could pull it out. So I worked on a speech that was really about my journey,” she explained.

She explained how the speech included that she would be the first woman president.

In the excerpt about the speech, she references her mother, “I dream of going up to her, and sitting down next to her, taking her in my arms, and saying, ‘Look at me, listen to me, you will survive, you will have a good family of your own, and three children, and as hard as it might be to imagine, your daughter will grow up and become the president of the United States.'”

When Clinton lost the race, she sent out an aide to greet the crowd.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reported Clinton explained, “In this lesson, I’m going to face one of my most public defeats head-on by sharing with you the speech I had hoped to deliver if I had won the 2016 election. I’ve never shared this with anybody. I’ve never read this out loud. But it helps to encapsulate who I am, what I believe in, and what my hopes were for the kind of country that I want for my grandchildren, and that I want for the world, that I believe in that is America at its best.”

Clinton’s mother died in 2011.
