Hillary Clinton States There Is A 'Crisis In Our Democracy' During Harvard Ceremony

Hillary Clinton has been very vocal about her opinion of the current state of the United States of America. Following her loss in the 2016 presidential election, Clinton went quiet for quite some time. Now, she is back on the trail after Donald Trump and is trying to make as many waves as she possibly can.

In a recent speech during the ceremony at Harvard that awarded her the Ratcliffe Medal, Clinton had some harsh words for the current state of the country in her opinion, reports Fox News. For those who do not know what the Ratcliffe Medal is, it honors those who have made a major impact on society.

"Attempting to erase the line between fact and fiction, truth and reality is a core feature of authoritarianism. Right now we are living through a crisis in our democracy. There are certainly not tanks in the street but what is happening today goes to the heart of who we are as a nation. I say this not as a Democrat who lost an election, but an American afraid of losing a country."
"It's not easy to wade back into the fight, but that is what we must do."
"I am optimistic about the future, because of how unbelievably tough we are proving to be."

No one will completely agree with Trump or Clinton, but they both present truths that need to be addressed.

Clinton may not have won the presidential election, but she still holds a lot of weight with many people. As long as she continues to promote a message of peace and respect, her grudge towards Trump will not cause more issues.
