Chelsea Clinton ripped President Trump in an interview with United Kingdom newspaper The Guardian while promoting her new book She Persisted Around the World.
The Trump administration is laden with “cruelty and incompetence and corruption,” and President Trump’s actions degrade America, Chelsea Clinton said in an interview with a British media outlet.
She also commented on Trump’s planned summer trip to meet with Prime Minister Theresa May, saying that she wished she could help bring the anti-Trump resistance overseas, Piro said, Fox News reports.
Clinton said she has attended “multiple protests” against the former New York mogul since his 2016 election.
“If I lived in Britain, I would show up to protest because I don’t agree with what [Trump] is doing to degrade what it means to be an American,” she said.
She called Trump’s White House “venal, corrupt and focused on making life harder for millions of Americans.”
Democratic attorney David Goodfriend agreed with Clinton, saying that Trump indeed “degraded” the White House by allegedly “paying off prostitutes.”
He said Trump’s trade policies also hurt American agriculture.
Republican strategist Gus Portella disagreed, pointing to a “booming economy” and saying that Trump has done a better job handling North Korea than President Bill Clinton.
“There is a great disconnect between the Clinton family and Middle America,” Portella said.
