Hillary Clinton: Being A Capitalist "Probably" Hurt Me In Dem Primaries


RNC: At the Shared Value Leadership Summit, Hillary Clinton says that being a capitalist hurt her during the 2016 Democratic primaries because so many Democrats now identify themselves as socialists.

ALAN MURRAY, TIME INC. CCO, MODERATOR: You may be the only presidential candidate since World War II that actually had to stand up and say, 'I am a capitalist.' And you did. Did it hurt you?

HILLARY CLINTON: Probably. I mean, you know, it's hard to know but if you're in the Iowa caucuses and 41% of Democrats are socialists or self-described socialists and I'm asked if you're a capitalist and I say, 'Yes, but with appropriate regulation and appropriate accountability,' that probably gets lost in the, 'Oh, my God, she's a capitalist!'
