What Happened is the new best-selling novel by former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton that outlines exactly what happened during the 2016 presidential election.
An answer that everyone wants to know. The Tom Joyner Morning show correspondents Shaun King, Jacque Reid, The Rev. Al Sharpton and Roland Martin join a roundtable interviewing Secretary Hillary Clinton.
Roland Martin explained African Americans during the election were not seeing Black surrogates on radio and television. He noted that it was very difficult to get them on Black radio and television. He asks Clinton what her experience was with having complaints like that and staff members of her own not cooperating with her.
“I am so convinced that everything could have had an impact on turnout and I regret and as I told you backstage and told you over and over again that it’s inexplicable to me. I have no explanation for you, ” she replied. “I can tell you that we had a lot of very active outreach that did go on across the country But I recognized and certainly acknowledged that there wasn’t the level of involvement and participation that I had hoped for.”
Ultimately she believes that, “The weaponization of information was a tool in trying to suppress voters,” as well as the letter from Jim Comey that caused votes to go in favor of Trump.
The interview also talks about the issue of health care, voter suppression, campaign momentum and the direction President Trump has taken the country.
