Today, Hillary Clinton was interviewed on CNN by Jake Tapper. The exclusive interview was about half an hour long, and Tapper asked Clinton about a variety of topics including her primary battle with Senator Bernie Sanders, a number of her platform points, and her thoughts on presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump. When asked whether she thought Trump is qualified to be president, she replied with a simple “no.” She added, “I know how hard this job is, and I know that we need steadiness as well as strength and smarts in it, and I have concluded he is not qualified to be president of the United States.” She went on to criticize a number of Trump’s proposals arguing that they would not make America safer, but would actually make it more vulnerable in the long run. Parts one and two of the interview are below.
Clinton also attended two fundraisers in the Chicago, Illinois. The first event was held in Park Ridge and was hosted by Beth and George Drost, Tracey and Charles Drost, and Betsy Ebeling. The second event was in the city and hosted by Barbara Burrell, Leslie Carey, Frank Clark, Les Coney, Nelda Connors, Dedrea and Paul Gray, Pat Harris, Elzie Higginbottom, John Hooker, Monica Hughson, Wilbur C.
