On Tuesday, former first daughter Chelsea Clinton participated in an interview on CBS News’ “This Morning” and responded to questions about the possibility of running for office.
When asked about a potential 2020 run against President Trump, who beat Chelsea’s mother Hillary Clinton in the 2016 general election, she commented that she has no interest. She also stated that she is not looking to run for president “right now.”
“I think to run for public office, though, a few things have to be true… I think you have to have a clear vision of what you would do in a given job,” Clinton said. “You have to have a clear sense that you’re the best person for that job.”
“I clearly don’t agree with our president, but I’m definitely not the right person to run to defeat him in 2020. So, right now, the answer is no. But I think we all need to be asking ourselves that question periodically. And, I hope that a lot of young people kinda use the election to think, ‘Wow, should I run for public office? Am I the right person for a given job?’ Whether it’s a school board or a senator.”
