She ended the statement saying quote: "Finally, these are not times to despair; they are simply times to rise up.

Things are changing swiftly and dramatically in this country, and I have faith that something is awakening among us.

A politics of conscience is still yet possible.

And yes….love will prevail.

She argued that her fellow Democratic rivals were not taking on Trump the right way..
