Tucked among talk about his new book, upcoming documentaries and the future of the United States, Dinesh D'Souza made a major prediction on the next American president: "If I had to bet now, I regret to say, I would bet on Hillary."
D'Souza, in a TV interview with Glenn Beck on that aired Thursday evening, said that, though he doesn't want Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton to become president, the former secretary of state's "game is really good."
"[Clinton's campaign staff] fight like it matters to them," D'Souza said on The Glenn Beck Program. "They're in a knife fight, not a chess match, and we have to up our game."
D'Souza even went on to say he "respects" the former secretary of state's campaign.
"I respect their ruthlessness," D'Souza said. "If you look at Hillary, her political strategy is to doggedly move ahead and dare everybody else to bludgeon her to the ground and sit on her, otherwise she's going to keep moving — you've got to respect that."
Earlier in the program, D'Souza spoke directly to Clinton's "ruthlessness" in her "ambition."
"Her ambition is to establish a kind of stranglehold of control over the leaders of wealth and power in America," D'Souza posited. "I don't just mean the government. I mean the private sector, over the lives of American citizens."
D'Souza compared the presidential contender's ambition to a "Napoleonic hunger for power" and "tyrannical impulse," claiming Clinton would not be satisfied "if everything is not at your command — if everyone is not at your behest."
D'Souza discusses his claims in depth in his new book "Stealing America."
