Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton refuses to go away.

Speculation is rife again this week that she may be considering a 2024 presidential run after former President Bill Clinton announced that they are relaunching the “Clinton Global Initiative.”

“The Clinton Foundation is planning another Clinton Global Initiative – a high-profile gathering of business, political and philanthropic leaders – this September in New York, according to a letter former President Bill Clinton sent to the foundation’s supporters Friday,” The Associated Press reported.

“The initiative, which began meeting annually in 2005 and boasted speakers ranging from former presidents Barack Obama and Jimmy Carter to celebrity philanthropists like Bono and Ben Affleck, ended in 2016 during former Sen. Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign when questions were raised about the appearance of potential conflicts of interests if donors then had business before Hillary Clinton’s administration,” the report added.

In the letter, the former president said that the “kind of cooperation and coordination,” that he said happened when the initiative first launched in 2005, “has never been more urgent than it is now.”

“The COVID-19 pandemic has ripped the cover off of longstanding inequities and vulnerabilities across our global community. The existential threat of climate change grows every day. Democracy is under assault around the world, most glaringly in Ukraine where Russia has launched an unjustified and unprovoked invasion that has put millions of lives in grave danger. The number of displaced people and refugees worldwide is higher than it has ever been—more than one in 95 of all people alive on the planet today has been forced to flee their home—and rising. And it seems that all across the globe, people are pulling away from those who are different from them—putting our future at greater risk and making it harder to solve the challenges and seize the opportunities in front of us,” the former president said.

“To meet the urgency of this moment, I am calling on the CGI community to come together again—alongside new members and voices including influential emerging leaders and grassroots activists—beginning with a meeting in New York City this September,” he added.

Many social media believed this signaled Hillary Clinton is considering a 2024 run.

Hillary Clinton may smell blood in the water with the Democrat Party.

During a recent interview on Good Morning America, Clinton declared that she will never leave politics because she feels that “democracy is at stake.”

“I will never be out of the game of politics,” Clinton said.

“I’m not going to be running for anything but I really feel like our democracy’s at stake for many reasons … some of them we saw on the screen with the insurrection, some of them are about Facebook that creates a world of disinformation instead of one we can agree on what the facts are. I really am worried,” she added.

“I do worry that we face a lot of really serious problems that don’t get the attention they deserve,” Clinton said.

In an interview with The Atlantic, Clinton argued that she is concerned that the Republican Party is engaged in minority rule and that we are on the brink of a “constitutional crisis.”

“I won the popular vote, lost the Electoral College by 70,000-plus votes, and we saw all this stuff online about the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks and the Russians and all of that,” she said, again lamenting her defeat to Donald Trump in 2016.

“And then Joe Biden won by a huge popular-vote margin, but only won the Electoral College by about 100,000 votes. So the parallels between what happened in 2016 and 2020 are not often understood. And why that’s important is, the Republicans—and now we have to say the Republican Party, not just the Trumpers and all of those who are part of this effort to undermine our democracy, but the Republican Party—were shocked that they lost, because they never thought that they would lose by such narrow margins and, we know, accurately and legitimately in places like Georgia or Arizona. So what are they going to do now?” she said.
