A week before the U.S. presidential election, the Democrats and the Republicans are scrambling to drive their causes home in one last push for Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s respective bids for the White House.
Clinton, with a slew of celebrity supporters, sat down with Extra and talked briefly about the overall experience of running for president. Aside from the usual lines of politics, she was also asked about the outgoing first lady, Michelle Obama, given that the two recently hit the campaign trail last week. The 69-year-old politician was obviously all praises for President Barack Obama’s wife and even went as far as revealing that she is considering bringing her to the Cabinet.
“She’s made it pretty clear she wants to focus on important issues like girls’ education around the world she and I actually talked about it when we were together in Winston-Salem and I want to be the best partner I can be for whenever she wants to do be involved in government again. I think she wants to take a break from it, but if she ever wants to do anything like that, I would be the number-one person,” Clinton stated.
During the interview, the Chicago native sat beside actress-singer Jennifer Lopez who has supported her campaign all the way. The “Jenny from the Block” singer vouched for Clinton as she revealed that she lives in the same building as Chelsea, Clinton’s daughter with former President Bill Clinton, and personally witnessed how great of a family they are.
While the former secretary of state promotes the lighter side of things, Trump continues to lambast her, warning of an unstable regime should she get elected next week.
“I’m now convinced that we will be facing the very real possibility of a constitutional crisis with many dimensions and deleterious consequences should Secretary Clinton win the election,” the businessman turned politician told several thousands of his supporters in Grand Rapids, Michigan. “She would be under protracted criminal investigation and probably a criminal trial, I would say. So we’d have a criminal trial of a sitting president.”
Trump has long been accusing Clinton of corruption but what is interesting is that before he would only insinuate that she will be facing legal charges because of it. Now, however, he sounds fairly certain that she indeed will undergo scrutiny.
Needless to say, regardless of one’s political affiliations and personal choice, people are highly encouraged to cast their votes on Nov. 8.
