Hillary Clinton continues on the campaign trail.
The failed 2016 candidate, who has claimed she will not run in 2020 for the Democratic nomination for president, is maintaining a campaign-like schedule.
She was in Atlanta today to accept the “Realizing The Dream” award at the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and while there, she was introduced as “president.”

“From your lips to God’s ears,” she reportedly responded, according to Atlanta Journal Constitution reporter Greg Bluestein.

During the event, Clinton sounded like a candidate and went after Trump.
The AJC reports:
Democrat Hillary Clinton urged civil rights activists in Atlanta Friday to respond to President Donald Trump’s racist tweets that four liberal congresswoman of color should “go back” to their countries by getting mobilized for the 2020 vote.
“We are better than this, but we better start proving it, not just saying it,” the 2016 Democratic nominee told a crowd of hundreds at the Southern Christian Leadership Conference’s convention in Atlanta.
“It can’t just be a battle fought on Twitter. It has to be fought and won at the ballot box – which is the only place that matters,” she said.
SCLC president Charles Steele said “several” 2020 candidates were invited, but none accepted.
Only Clinton attended.
