    Clinton Sends Pizza to NY Fans Camping for Book Launch

    The White House response accused former campaign rival Hillary Clinton of "propping up book sales with false and reckless attacks."

    White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says she's unsure if President Donald Trump will be reading "What Happened," Clinton's account of the 2016 campaign. She says the president is "pretty well-versed on what happened."

    Sanders says Clinton "ran one of the most negative campaigns in history" and says it's "sad" the last chapter of her public life will be defined by selling books with "false and reckless attacks." Sanders did not elaborate or offer any specifics.

    Hundreds of people crowded into a New York City bookstore Tuesday to see Hillary Clinton.

    The former Democratic presidential nominee appeared at the store to promote her new book about the 2016 presidential campaign. Clinton didn't offer public remarks but signed copies of "What Happened" for several hundred supporters. Some waited outside the Manhattan Barnes & Noble for more than five hours.

    The book was officially released Tuesday.

    A Barnes & Noble spokesman said the store sold 1,200 copies of the book related to Tuesday's appearance. That's more than Clinton sold when she appeared there to promote her last book in 2014.

    Clinton lashes out at President Donald Trump in her new book and lays out some of the factors she believes contributed to her loss, including Russian hackers and her gender.
