Hillary Clinton attempted to tie herself to French President-elect Emmanuel Macron’s runoff victory over far-right candidate Marine Le Pen on Sunday.
Clinton posted a tweet calling Macron’s election a victory for “the world” and a “defeat” to the hackers who released Macron’s emails to the public shortly before the election, but then turned the focus towards herself, claiming “the media says I can’t talk about that.” Clinton is known to have staffers carefully craft and edit her tweets before posting.
Victory for Macron, for France, the EU, & the world.
Defeat to those interfering w/democracy. (But the media says I can't talk about that)

The tweet is the latest step in Clinton’s return to politics amid public speculation that she will run for president a third time in 2020.
While speaking at a televised women’s event last week, Clinton declaredherself a member of the anti-Trump “resistance” and blamed FBI Director Jim Comey and Russian interference for her loss to Donald Trump.
