Clift: I Wouldn’t Put US ‘Naturally Above’ China and Africa on Corruption and Cronyism

The Daily Beast’s Eleanor Clift said that she wouldn’t “put the US naturally above every other country”, including African nations and China on cronyism and corruption on Friday’s “McLaughlin Group.”

After fellow panelist Tom Rogan said, “President Obama is focused on rule of law in Africa, as that develops, and China has the same kind of cronyism problems. I think this is a great example of why people should look to the United States for a rules-based international system that serves –.” Clift cut in to argue, “What about the special interests and the control they have in the best Congress money can buy? I’m not going to put the US naturally above every other country. We have our problems, too.”
