"I started the campaign knowing that I would have to work extra hard to make women and men feel comfortable with the idea of a woman president", she said in the Sunday interview.

Clinton reiterated her argument that Comey's decision fewer than two weeks before the election to publicly re-open - and later close - the investigation into her email practices derailed the campaign, asking why Comey did not announce that he was also investigating Trump's potential ties to Russian Federation.

While her career as "an active politician" is "over", Clinton said that she is "not done with politics because I believe our country's future is at stake".

"I thought Trump was behaving in a deplorable manner".
