The former First Lady, Hilary Clinton, has said that she will not stand again for the Presidency of the United States. In 2016, Ms Clinton, who has had a lifelong experience of activism in the Democratic Party, and is a firm support of LGBT civil rights, lost the Presidency to Donald Trump, although she actually polled more direct votes from the public. Mr Trump was installed because of the strange biases in the US system of Electoral Colleges. Ms Clinton confirmed that she was not retiring from politics however, and remained committed to the Democratic Party as an agent for progressive change in the US. She said “We've gotten into really opposing camps unlike anything I've seen in my adult life”. Ms Clinton also said she would not be running for governership in New York State again, although she reiterated her intention to continue to campaign for civil rights.
