NEW YORK — Hillary Clinton said she meant no disrespect when she said some women voters are politically swayed by men.

Clinton took to Facebook on Saturday to explain comments she made during an interview in India on March 10.

During a discussion at the India Today Conclave, Clinton was asked why she thought most white women voted for Donald Trump.

“Democrats do not do well with white men, and we don’t do well with married white women,” Clinton replied. “And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.’’

In the Facebook posting, she wrote that she did not realize how hard it would hit many who heard it.

“I understand how some of what I said upset people and can be misinterpreted,’’ she wrote. “I meant no disrespect to any individual or group. And I want to look to the future as much as anybody.’’
