Hillary Clinton: ‘We need empathy in policies and politics’

The former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton was recognised with a honorary doctorate at Swansea University. She calls for empathy ‘at the centre of policies, politics and public lives’.

Failing to secure a Brexit deal with the European Union would put Britain at a ‘very big disadvantage’, Hillary Clinton has claimed.

The former US secretary of state and presidential hopeful also said the Brexit result and more specifically the alleged lies told in the run up to the referendum were a precursor to her defeat to Donald Trump in last year’s presidential elections.

Mrs Clinton, who was today presented with an honorary degree at Swansea University, took a swipe at President Trump and said he ‘doesn’t believe in trade’.
