Hillary Clinton On Immigration, Email Deletion And Trustworthiness
Democrat presidential contender Hillary Clinton has the Republicans to blame for the series of attacks hurled against her credibility which greatly reduced the number of voters who trust her, according to the latest poll.
In an interview with CNN, Clinton said her detractors for many years have been using the same theme in destroying her and husband, former President Bill Clinton, but at the end of the day, she said she is confident that American voters have sorted it out and she trusts the American voters a hundred percent.
When asked if she would vote for someone she does not trust, Clinton answered, “People should and do trust me.”
Clinton also answered questions about her revelation that she deleted her emails and cleared her mail servers, saying everything she did was permitted as there was no law or regulation that did not give her full authority to decide on how she was going to communicate.
“I did not have to turn over anything. I chose to turn over 55,000 pages. And now I think it’s kind of fun people get a real time behind-the-scene’s look at what I was emailing about,” Clinton said, referring to the recent release of documents containing petty messages such as how to use a fax machine or sending greetings to someone.
Clinton also said she turned over those which are relevant to her function as the secretary of state.
The conversation with Clinton became more interesting as she was asked on her opinion on business magnate and presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s description of Mexicans as rapists.
“I feel very bad and very disappointed with him and with the Republican Party for not responding immediately and saying, ‘Enough. Stop it,’” Clinton remarked.
Clinton has similar sentiments about Jeb Bush whom she said to be someone who does not believe in the path to citizenship.
“If he did it some time, he no longer does,” Clinton quipped, adding that most of the Republican presidential bidders are a “spectrum of being either grudgingly welcome or hostile toward immigrants.”
