NEW YORK - Former US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says President Donald Trump is a threat to the future of America.

Clinton says she was disturbed by the tone of Trump's inaugural speech.


The former secretary of state was promoting her new book, which details her loss in last year's presidential race.

Clinton admits her own mistakes but she believes Russia helped swing votes in Trump's favour.

"I was certainly hoping to hear words of reconciliation and bringing the country together after a very divisive campaign,” said Clinton.

“I didn't hear that and I felt very uneasy about that inauguration. I've been to a bunch of them, and I've been when people I supported won and when people I supported lost, but this was different.

“This was not a normal inauguration. And then it was made even more surreal with the claims about the crowd size and the introduction of alternative facts. And then I started thinking - whoa this is much more than just transfer from a two-term Democratic president to an unusual, but you know, Republican president."
