Hillary Clinton's campaign memoir and her national tour to promote it demonstrate why she lost the election to President Trump, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Wednesday, arguing her book is filled with "inaccuracies" that include Clinton's refusal to admit her mistakes.
"I think probably the biggest one is any place within the book where she lays blame for the loss on anyone but herself," Sanders told reporters at the White House on Wednesday when asked to provide an example of an inaccuracy in Clinton's book.
The memoir, What Happened, hit shelves on Tuesday and quickly gained widespread attention for Clinton's failure, in hundreds of pages outlining justifications for the 2016 result, to accept total responsibility for her defeat.
Sanders criticized Clinton for earlier in the day claiming Trump has failed to serve as a president for "all Americans."
"That type of misunderstanding of who this president is, and frankly a misunderstanding of what he's been doing, is exactly one of the reasons that Hillary Clinton is not the president and is instead pushing a book with a lot of false narratives and a lot of, I think, false accusations and placing blame on a lot of other people instead of accepting it herself," Sanders said.
The White House has not indicated whether Trump has personally read excerpts from Clinton's book.
