Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was emotional as she read part of her 2016 victory speech that had been scheduled as part of a new talk on the power of resilience.
“In this lesson, I will come face-to-face with one of my most public defeats by sharing with you the speech I hope to make if I win the 2016 election.” The former secretary of state said in an excerpt of her upcoming MasterClass lesson that was shared with TODAY.
“I have never shared this with anyone. I never read this out loud. But it helps to encapsulate who I am, what I believe in, and what my hopes are for the country that I want for my grandchildren and I want for the world, that I believe it is America. the best, ” Clinton speak.
Clinton said the speech would be given on election 2016 night if she won and didn’t lost to former President Donald Trump. During her speech, she talked about how strong democracy is in America, noting that voters were challenged to choose “unity” and “decency.”
Clinton will also cover being the first female president and how important it is to the country. She argued in her speech that her victory would change the “face” of American democracy forever.
“I’ve met boys and girls who don’t understand why a woman has never been president before,” she said. “This is a victory for all Americans. Men and women. Baby boy and girl. Because as our country has demonstrated again, when there are no ceilings, the sky is the limit. ”
In the video, Clinton becomes visibly emotional as she begins to talk about her mother, who faced enormous hardships growing up and died in 2011.
“You may have heard me talk about her difficult childhood. She was abandoned by her parents at the age of eight,” she said. “They put her on a train to California, where she was abused by her parents and ended up living on her own, working as a domestic worker.”
“Sometimes I think about her on that train,” Clinton said. “I dreamed of going up to her, and sitting down next to her, holding her in my arms and saying, ‘Look at me. Listen to me. You will survive. You will have a good family of your own. And three kids. And hard to imagine, your daughter will grow up and become the president of the United States.”
Clinton’s Masterclass will be released on Sunday, TODAY noted. Former President George W. Bush and former first lady Laura Bush will also be featured in a video on lessons in principled decision-making next year.
