Hillary Clinton made the news again this week, releasing a new book in which she details her journey during the 2016 presidential election.

Clinton spoke exclusively with CNNs Anderson Cooper on Wednesday, sharing her thoughts about the current Trump administration, how the 2016 campaign worked and what she plans to do in the future.

With all this Clinton talk, its hard not to imagine what could have been. So The New Yorker, in light of those thoughts, shared the cover it would have run with had Clinton become the first female president.

Take a look at the cover here.

Clinton lost the presidential election based on Electoral College votes, 306-232. She did win the popular vote, however.

Because of those results, The New Yorker ran a separate cover, called The Wall, which shows a red-brick wall, some of which hides the New Yorker logo.

David Remnick, who also interviewed Clinton upon the release of her book, commented on the Trump cover.

The election of Donald Trump to the Presidency is nothing less than a tragedy for the American republic, a tragedy for the Constitution, and a triumph for the forces, at home and abroad, of nativism, authoritarianism, misogyny, and racism, Remnick wrote at the time, before adding: To combat authoritarianism, to call out lies, to struggle honorably and fiercely in the name of American ideals that is what is left to do. That is all there is to do.
