Clinton is now on a book tour for What Happened, her memoir from the presidential campaign that will be released Tuesday.

She also said that one of the biggest mistakes she made was using a private email server while serving as secretary of state, although her book includes a lengthy section defending that decision, according to Bloomberg, which was provided an advance copy.

Clinton also addressed her infamous remarks past year that half of Trump's supporters were bigots who were part of a "basket of deplorables", saying she regretted handing Trump a political gift but also saying a "large number of people" didn't care about Trump's behavior.

"But then, midnight, I decided, 'Well, looks like it's not gonna work.'" That was when she called Donald Trump to officially concede, followed by a call to then-President Barack Obama.

Contributing to her loss, in Clinton's view, are Russian hackers, accusations by then-FBI Director James Comey, and a primary battle with Bernie Sanders.

Clinton said she had no idea what the outcome would be heading into Election Day.

"I think it's a little bit silly to keep talking about 2016", the senator added.

"I just kind of went in the bedroom, laid down on the bed, just thought 'Ok, I just have to wait this out, '" she said.

'As an active politician, it's over, ' the 2016 Democratic nominee said.

"You know, he said, Clinton ended up being the biggest bully of them all".

"I knew that. But I believed that it was my responsibility to try to offer answers to it, not to fan it".

When Pauley said that this merely energized some people and offended others who didn't personally feel deplorable at all Clinton adamantly stressed that she didn't buy that narrative. "But I think in this time we're in, particularly in this campaign, you know, maybe I missed a few chances".

"I had not drafted a concession speech".

In recent weeks, Mr Trump has found himself at the centre of mounting controversy over what critics say has been his support for white supremacists and racists. "I was just gobsmacked, wiped out".

"I thought his behavior as we saw on the "Access Hollywood" tape was deplorable", Clinton said.

Ms Clinton said she believed Mr Trump had tapped into a "nostalgia" felt by his supporters.

"I thought Trump was behaving in a deplorable manner". And there were a large number of people who didn't care. It did not matter to them, ' Clinton said. "And I should've done a better job of demonstrating 'I get it'".

Before CBS played the interview, Pauley did disclose that CBS owns the company that was publishing Clinton's book.
