Hillary Clinton calls Trump a ‘creep’ in upcoming memoir

In an excerpt from Hillary Clinton’s upcoming book, “What Happened,” the Democratic nominee for president calls President Donald Trump a “creep.”

The audio excerpts were played Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

In one of the clips, Clinton talks about a moment during the second presidential debate when Trump stood behind her as she answered a question, saying he was “literally breathing down my neck.”

Clinton also talks about why she wrote the book so soon after her election defeat.
“In this book, I write about moments from the campaign that I wish I could go back and do over. If the Russians could hack my subconscious, they’d find a long list.”

The book, which takes a look at Clinton’s run for president and her unexpected defeat, is due to be released on Sept. 2.
