says the former adviser to Bill who is now working with Trump
- Dick Morris was an advisor to Bill Clinton when he was governor of Arkansas and then president in 1992, but now he advises Donald Trump.
- He said Bill and Hillary’s recent comments about immigrants are a sign that she is preparing to run as a “moderate” Democratic choice in 2024.
- Morris predicted that Clinton would announce a third bid for the White House if the Democrats faced heavy midterm losses in the Senate and House.
A former adviser to her husband said on Sunday that Hillary Clinton may be preparing to run for president in 2024 as a “moderate.”
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s criticism of “open borders” could be a sign that she is eyeing a third presidential campaign, a former adviser to her husband speculated on Sunday.
Dick Morris, who worked with Bill Clinton and now serves as an advisor to Donald Trump, believes Clinton sees an opportunity for the “moderate” 2024 candidate.
“Hillary is dusting off the playbook she wrote for him and doing it herself this year,” Morris told radio host John Katsimatidis of the Cat’s Roundtable on WABC.
He cited Clinton’s recent comments that they were aware of the worsening border crisis, and struck a different tone from that of the progressives in their own party.
Clinton gave a recent interview to MSNBC in which she condemned Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis for sending immigrants from the southern border to Martha’s Vineyard, but conceded that “no one wants an open border.”
Morris also referenced Bill Clinton’s interview with Fareed Zakaria on CNN last week when he said “there’s a limit” to the number of immigrants the US can take in before causing “severe disruption” in society.
“I see more and more indications that Hillary will run. There is a limit to the number of people the United States can take in. And Hillary a week ago … said Americans don’t believe in open borders,” Morris said Sunday.
“These are all signs that she will be the moderate presidential candidate.”
He cited her statements stating that Americans do not want “open borders,” which Republicans have accused President Joe Biden of creating.
He predicted that it would wait until after the midterm elections — when Republicans are expected to take back the House, while the fate of the current 50-50 Senate is uncertain.
You will say after the election, “Look, the left has cost us the House and the Senate. If we stay with a left-wing candidate in 2024, we will lose the White House. I am the only one who will go to the center and give us a chance to win.”
“I know that’s her strategy because it’s the strategy she designed for Bill Clinton in 1992.”
Clinton herself vowed never to run for president again when asked last month, after losing the 2008 Democratic primary to Barack Obama and losing the 2016 general election to Donald Trump — but not before becoming the first woman to lead a major party ticket.

“No, no,” the former first lady said when asked about her future prospects in the White House by CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell.
But I will do everything I can to make sure we have a president who respects our democracy and the rule of law and supports our institutions.
And while Clinton may not make herself the choice of voters in the next presidential cycle, a recent poll indicates that Democratic voters want someone new in the White House.
The ABC News poll, released last Sunday, indicates that a majority of Biden’s base would not consider the president their first choice.
Fifty-six percent of left-leaning Democrats and independents said they want someone other than Biden to be the 2024 nominee.
Only 35 percent of the group supported his candidacy.
