Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton ripped first daughter Ivanka Trump‘s reported presidential aspirations in an interview with Dutch TV last week, saying the U.S. does not want any more “inexperienced Trumps in the White House.”
“That’s not going to happen,” Clinton said. “We don’t want any more inexperienced Trumps in the White House.”
“I think the American people have seen for themselves what happens when a reality TV candidate wins,” she continued.
“I really believe there’s an enormous amount of pent-up energy to take our country back away from the Trump administration,” she said.
“I believe we’ve got a very good chance of winning the House of Representatives, which will be the beginning of the process of writing the ship of state,” she said.
The Hill added:
Author Michael Wolff wrote in his tell-all book about the Trump administration, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” that the first daughter had presidential aspirations.
“Balancing risk against reward, both Jared and Ivanka decided to accept roles in the West Wing over the advice of almost everyone they knew. It was a joint decision by the couple, and, in some sense, a joint job,” Wolff wrote.
“Between themselves, the two had made an earnest deal: If sometime in the future the opportunity arose, she’d be the one to run for president. The first woman president, Ivanka entertained, would not be Hillary Clinton; it would be Ivanka Trump.”
In an interview with Town and Country in 2015, Trump did not rule out a run for public office.
“It’s not something I’ve ever been inclined to do, but I’m 34, so who knows?” the first daughter said. “At this point, I would never even contemplate it, but that doesn’t mean that when I’m 50 I won’t have a change of heart.”
When asked whether Ivanka Trump will make good on her desire to become the 1st female President of the United States, Hillary Clinton did not miss a beat in this brilliant dead-pan. HRC has emerged post-election as the voice of the Resistance IMHO. Whether people admit it or not. pic.twitter.com/19hCGJoalt
