Audio excerpts were released of "What Happened," Clinton's book about her loss to Trump in the 2016 presidential election and played on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Wednesday.

Clinton said she almost told Trump, "Back up, you creep," as Trump lingered behind her during the second presidential debate, which was held two days after the "Access Hollywood" video surfaced in which Trump was heard discussing groping women.

"It was one of those moments where you wish you could hit pause and ask everyone watching 'well, what would you do?" Clinton said, saying her "skin crawled" during the incident.

Clinton said she gripped the microphone extra hard to avoid saying anything to Trump.

"It certainly would have been better TV," she said. "Maybe I have overlearned the lesson of staying calm, biting my tongue, digging my fingernails into a clenched fist, smiling all the while, determined to present a composed face to the world."

"What Happened," is set to be released on Sept. 12.

Trump also owns Trump National Golf Club Hudson Valley in Stormville and Trump National Westchester in Briarcliff Manor.

The Trump name also adorns Trump Tower At City Center in White Plains.
