Priebus: Americans Can’t ‘Trust’ Hillary Clinton

Washington, DC

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus is responding to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s announcement that she will run for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

“Americans need a president they can trust and voters do not trust Hillary Clinton. Over decades as a Washington insider, Clinton has left a trail of secrecy, scandal, and failed policies that can’t be erased from voters’ minds,” Priebus says. “The Clintons believe they can play by a different set of rules and think they’re above transparency, accountability, and ethics. Our next president must represent a higher standard, and that is not Hillary Clinton.”

He added that Clinton’s announcement comes at a time when she has ongoing investigations into her email server and foreign policy record.

“Republicans have a strong and diverse set of candidates who will engage in a productive debate on how to move our country forward. Clinton’s coronation represents more of the same, and voters have made it clear they want a new direction,” added Priebus.
