Misogyny certainly contributed to electoral loss, says Hillary Clinton

Clinton, who spoke at the Women in the World conference in NY on Thursday, called for the U.S. Congress to launch an investigation into the matter.

Continuing her rapid return to the political spotlight, Hillary Clinton began her keynote speech at a fundraising luncheon for Annie's List on Friday with a few choice words for President Donald Trump and his decision to launch missiles at an air base in Syria last week.

Clinton during her tenure as the Secretary of State under former President Barack Obama - and during the presidential campaign - advocated more aggressive action to deter Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, CBS News reported.

Clinton adds that the USA could not "in one breath speak of protecting Syrian babies and in the next, close America's doors to them".

"When you kill innocent children, innocent babies - babies, little babies - with a chemical gas that is so lethal, people were shocked to hear what gas it was, that crosses many, many lines", he said.

Given the recent events over the past twenty-four hours, it's expected that Clinton will comment on President Trump's overnight military strike in Syria. Clinton urged Trump to develop a strategy for ending Syria's civil war that was consistent with American values.

On Trump's orders, United States warships in the Mediterranean Sea launched between 50-60 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Shayrat air base in Homs governorate, where the warplanes that carried out the chemical attacks are based.

But she repeated blame dished out previous year before campaign donors that Federal Bureau of Investigation intervention over her email scandal and Russian attempts to sway the outcome of vote in Trump's favour were chiefly to blame. "Although he [Putin] did shake hands with me", said Clinton in a clear reference to Trump's refusal to shake hands with German Chancellor Angela Merkel during the latter's visit.

Hillary Clinton said that the United States of America should take out the Syrianair force completely.
