Following Monday night’s debate, Donald Trump has continued to pat himself on the back for not mentioning Bill Clinton’s infidelities during the debate. Trump said, “I’m very happy that I was able to hold back on the indiscretions with respect to Bill Clinton. Because I have a lot of respect for Chelsea Clinton and I just didn’t want to say what I was going to say.”
Well, Chelsea Clinton has some words for Donald Trump.
Chelsea pushed back against Trump’s claim that he was proud to not have resurfaced the former president’s past out of “respect” for her in an interview with Cosmopolitan on Tuesday, saying Trump is only seeking to sidestep real issues.
Chelsea said, “It’s a distraction from his inability to talk about what’s actually at stake in this election and to offer concrete, comprehensive proposals about the economy, or our public school system, or debt-free college, or keeping our country safe and Americans safe here at home and around the world.”
Chelsea, a friend of Ivanka Trump, went on to attack Trump for his repeated attacks against women and minority groups, saying those are “far more troubling than whatever his most recent screed against my mom or my family [is].”
“What I find most troubling by far,” she said, “are Trump’s continued, relentless attacks on whole swaths of our country and even our global community: women, Muslims, Americans with disabilities, [and] a Gold Star family.”
