Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may still be considering a 2020 rematch against President Donald Trump.
In a local interview with News 12, Clinton said, "I'm not running."
That may not be the full story.
Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times White House correspondent "spoke with someone close with Clinton."
"They say she wasn’t trying to be emphatic and close the door on running when she spoke to a local reporter yesterday, and that she was surprised by how definitively it played," Haberman reported.
"The person also says she is extremely unlikely to run, but that she remains bothered that she’s expected to close the door on it when, say, John Kerry isn’t," she continued.
"She has told her team she is waiting at least to see the Mueller report," she added.
President Donald Trump also weighed in on the story.
