Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took a swipe at the former late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, claiming she failed at making a 'positive difference' for women.

Speaking in an interview with BBC Radio 5's Emma Barnett, it was noted as being "quite striking" that the former secretary of state decided to leave Thatcher out of the book, mainly because the leader fitted the description of "gutsy women, even if you didn't like her."

"She doesn't fit the other part of the definition, in our opinion, which really is knocking down other barriers for others and trying to make a positive difference," Clinton replied.

But despite Clinton praising Thatcher as "strong" and "clever," she followed up by saying there were no "apparent" positive differences or changes the prime minister had effected for women.

Clinton also blasted the British press's treatment of the Duchess of Sussex, Megan Markel, claiming it was racist and sexist.

"I think absolutely there's a racist and a sexist element to what's going on here," she said.

"To think that some of your, what we would call mainstream media, actually allowed that to be printed in their pages, or amplified, was heartbreaking and wrong."

Clinton said she wanted to "hug" the Duchess of Sussex and tell her to "hang in there."

On Tuesday, Clinton said she was "dumbfounded" following the UK government's decision not to release a report on alleged Russian influence in British politics.

Boris Johnson's government pledged to focus on the coming general election instead of 'Russia.'

Clinton told the BBC that the public needs to know what is in the report by Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee.

She then slammed the decision to withhold the report as “inexplicable and shameful.”

“I’m dumbfounded that this government won’t release the report … because every person who votes in this country deserves to see that report before your election happens,” Clinton said.

Clinton added that she couldn't understand why the report wasn't released.
