Hillary Clinton, former Democratic nominee for the U.S. presidential race in 2016, claimed “absolute personal responsibility” for her election loss while adding that Russian hackers and a letter by the FBI director, James Comey, over her controversial email inquiry, decisively impacted the outcome.

Clinton admitted that her presidential campaign was marked by “challenges, hurdles and shortfalls,” as she revealed about writing a book that analyzes her election journey, reports Reuters.

Taking a dig at the U.S. President Donald Trump over the North Korea crisis, Clinton said that the problem should be resolved by regional efforts with America’s input in critical negotiations and not by “just a tweet some morning,” writes the BBC.
