Hillary Clinton says she meant no disrespect to certain groups of President Donald Trump voters she appeared to criticize during a recent interview.

Clinton's comments in an 861-word posting on her Facebook page.

Clinton noted she also was asked about women who supported Trump — particularly white females.

"I also mentioned something in passing that's gotten a lot of negative attention: that there is anecdotal evidence and some research to suggest that women are unfortunately more swayed by men than the other way around," she said. "As much as I hate the possibility, and hate saying it, it's not that crazy when you think about our ongoing struggle to reach gender balance — even within the same household.

"I did not realize how hard it would hit many who heard it. I was out there having a conversation, and this was one piece of a larger point about how Democrats need to do better with white women, because I know in my heart that Democrats have much more to offer them.

"I understand how some of what I said upset people and can be misinterpreted. I meant no disrespect to any individual or group."

The Hill noted that Clinton also had been criticized for comments describing the states that supported her as much more economically advantaged than those who backed Trump in the election.

And Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin had been critical of some of Clinton's recent comments characterizing those who voted for Trump as xenophobic and misogynistic.

"It's not helpful at all," he told Fox News. "My friend Hillary Clinton is wrong."
