"Intimidated" is really similar to "afraid". When you say that someone has been intimidated, you're saying that they were made to feel timid by whatever it was that intimidated them. In the first example you gave, it's saying that Hillary Clinton is not afraid of Donald Trump. In the second example, it's saying that the speaker doesn't want people to be afraid in something. Does that make sense?
