Hillary Clinton: I’m ‘Disturbed’ By Donald Trump’s Campaign
Hillary Clinton said she’s “disturbed” by Donald Trump.
During an interview with Jennifer Lopez and Tracey Edmonds on “Extra” Monday, the Democratic nominee was asked about her “Love Trumps Hate” slogan.
“I started talking about love and kindness months ago in this campaign because I was just so disturbed by what I saw coming from my opponent and on the other side — the kind of negativity, the insulting, the bigotry,” Clinton said. “I thought, ‘Wait a minute, that is not who we are.'”
“We’ve got problems and we’re gonna keep moving to solve those problems, but we’re so much better than what we’re hearing from the candidate on the other side, Donald Trump,” she continued. “And so I wanted people to begin to look at each other with more respect and understanding.” (RELATED: Chelsea Clinton: The Trump Campaign Is ‘Deeply Troubling’)
Clinton also lavished praise on Michelle Obama, who has been campaigning for her in recent weeks.
“Well, I don’t know how anybody could have done what she’s done for the last eight years with more grace and more of a sense of purpose but inclusivity,” she said.
“She has been an exemplary first lady, and I know how hard that job is. So I feel so close to her and I’m so appreciative of all the help she’s giving me, all the confidence and courage, because it’s hard.”
She added that she would consider Michelle for a cabinet position if she was interested.
“She’s made it pretty clear she wants to focus on important issues like girls’ education around the world — she and I actually talked about it when we were together in Winston-Salem — and I want to be the best partner I can be for whenever she wants to do be involved in government again,” she said.
“I think she wants to take a break from it, but if she ever wants to do anything like that, I would be the number-one person.” (RELATED: Everyone Is Talking About The White Dress Michelle Obama Wore To The State Dinner Last Night)
