The 72-year-old was branded “crooked Hillary” by Trump during the 2016 election subjected to chants of “lock her up” at campaign rallies.
Clinton said she "can't entertain the idea of him winning” again in 2020 after what she recently called the “emotional gut punch” of her defeat.
“Well, because it makes me literally sick to my stomach to think that we’d have four more years of this abuse and destruction of our institutions, and damaging of our norms and our values, and lessening of our leadership, and the list goes on,” she told the podcast.
“I don’t think he has any boundaries at all, Kara. I don’t think he has any conscience. He’s obviously not a moral, truthful man.”

Biden has been holding a steady lead in the national polls.
But, his "leads are not insurmountable. Trump has improved his standing in both Pennsylvania and Wisconsin since September," says Fox News.
Clinton acknowledged that despite her former adversary trailing in them polls nationally, there was still the possibility of him winning again by securing more electoral college votes.
“He knows more about how he got really elected than we still do. Hopefully, we’ll learn more in the years ahead,” she said.
Clinton went on to attack Republicans who she said “have been cowards, spineless enablers" of Trump.
"Most Republicans are going to want to close the page. They want to see him gone as much as we do, but they can't say it publicly."
She said Trump would be facing "all kinds of investigations, particularly at the New York state level" and was asked: “Would you say, lock him up?”
“No, I would never say that,” she replied.
Clinton recently mocked the president after the Trump campaign bullishly claimed it would pull in more viewers after a virtual debate was axed.
“Americans are sick of the Trump reality show. Let's cancel it for good, shall we?,” she said.
