Chelsea Clinton wouldn’t say if her mother Hillary is definitely going to run for president, as most believe, however, she did make it clear she’ll have her back when she does. The comments came during a short softball interview with Fusion.
Conflict of interest? What conflict of interest. Either Chelsea doesn’t keep up on the headlines, she’s incredibly naive, or, well, she’s a Clinton.
She said she believes Hillary has “addressed and answered” any questions over conflicts of foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation while she was Secretary of State. And the ongoing email scandal may just as well have never happened in Clinton land.
“I believe that historically, all of those possible conflicts have been addressed and answered,” the youngest member of the Clinton family said. “And we will have to continue to do that in the future to ensure that we are able to do the work that we are called to do and with the right partners along the way.”
“You know, I’m so grateful my mom is my mom and I’m her daughter,” Chelsea told Fusion’s Alicia Menendez on Saturday, during the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative University in Miami. “And I know she’s always made the right decisions for herself in our family and in our country. And I don’t know what she’s going to decide. But whatever it is, it will be the right decision for her and for all of us.”
