Chelsea Clinton confirmed yesterday that she might run for elective office in the . Chelsea is the daughter of ex- President and Hillary Clinton – the former first lady made two unsuccessful bids for the presidency, in 2008 and 2016.

Promoting her children’s book “Start Now! You Can Make a Difference” at the Edinburgh book , Clinton told reporters that running for office is a “definite no now,” but a “definite maybe” in the future.

publication, The Guardian, reported that Chelsea took a shot at President as she said: “At the federal level, as much as I abhor so much of what is doing, I have a great amount of gratitude for what my congresswoman and my senators are doing to try to stop him at every point.”

She continued: “While I disagree with the president … I think my … is being really well represented. But if that were to change, if my city councillor were to retire, if my congresswoman were to retire, my senators, and I thought that I could make a positive impact, then I think I would really have to ask my answer to that question … For me ’s a definite no now but ’s a definite maybe in the future because knows what the future is going to bring?

Elaborating on her dislike for the man who beat her mother at the 2016 polls, Chelsea asserted that she is “outraged every day” by President Trump’s words and actions and called herself her “mother’s daughter” as she described how she is more angry over Trump’s administration’s policies over “anything he has ever done to my families”:

“I’m outraged every day by something our president has done or said or left undone or neglected, or who he has recently bullied on or . … For me, sometimes, I think I’m just so fundamentally my mother’s daughter that I’m far more outraged by the Trump administration ripping children away from their families at the border and not having reunified those children with their families now for months, than I am about anything he has ever done to my families.”

On her mother’s failed presidential campaign and what her mother has been doing after her stunning defeat to Trump at the 2016 polls, Chelsea reportedly said:

“She just has continued to persist forward in trying to have a positive impact in politics and outside politics in the way that I have seen her do my entire .

“Of course it’s not the way I wish she would be doing that because I think she would’ve been a uniquely extraordinary president, but I’m not remotely surprised that she hasn’t pulled the covers over her head because that’s just not who my mom is.”
