Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has officially ruled out a 2020 run, saying instead that she will use her influence and experience to help candidates and ensure a Democrat unseats President Donald Trump, according to News 12 Westchester.

Clinton, who lost the general election to Trump in 2016 and lost the Democratic primary to former President Barack Obama in 2008, previously had left the door slightly open for one more run. That door is now closed, she said.

"I'm not running, but I'm going to keep working and speaking and standing up for what I believe," Clinton told News 12.

"I want to be sure that people understand I'm going to keep speaking out. I'm not going anywhere," Clinton continued. "What's at stake in our country, the kind of things that are happening right now are deeply troubling to me. And I'm also thinking hard about how do we start talking and listening to each other again? We've just gotten so polarized. We've gotten into really opposing camps unlike anything I've ever seen in my adult life."

How does she plan to help Democrats?

Clinton has already met with several of the Democratic primary candidates privately, and she said she's given them advice on how to approach the race.

"I've told every one of them, don't take anything for granted, even though we have a long list of real problems and broken promises from this administration that need to be highlighted," Clinton told News 12. "People need to understand that in many cases, they were sold a bill of goods. We can't take anything for granted. We have to work really, really hard to make our case to the American people, and I'm gonna do everything I can to help the Democrats win back the White House."

Clinton told the network that she has no plans to run for office in New York as a senator or governor either, but that she instead will support candidates who she believes can improve the state.
