Chelsea Clinton comes out for the variety Power of Women luncheon in New York City, April 21, 2017.


To promote a wide-ranging interview on his latest book, Chelsea Clinton, said that President Trump “degraded, what it means to be an American” and said she would July to protest his planned visit to the UK, if you are British.

The former first daughter, who just published”, she insisted, around the world,” the debt of Trump administration, that they “hate mainlined” and cited reports of an increase in hate crimes, as documented by organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center and the FBI.

“Not only the hundreds, but now thousands of instances in schools across America, where children are relying on the President, as you are degrading a little girl, or you to sing ‘Build a wall’ in an attempt to humiliate and degrade brown children,” she told the Guardian.

Trump has a wall on America’s southern border, one of the cornerstones of his 2016 presidential campaign, and, in spite of the fact that it is comedic fodder for late-night-talk-show-hosts —the wall is built.

“I think those of us who do the platforms say, this is wrong and unacceptable, so that we can normalize, but try to detoxify what has been unleashed. Because if we don’t, we leave a vacuum. And I think the darkness fills the vacuum,” she added.

When asked by the guardian how the British react to trump’s planned visit in July, Clinton is referred to, and their children, namely:

“Well, I have been several protests since the election. Charlotte was at least three, maybe four. Aidan was a. When I lived in England, I would show protest up to, because I humiliate agree with what he is doing to what it means to be an American.”

Of her friendship with Ivanka Trump, current first daughter and assistant to the President reported, Clinton said the two have not spoken to each other “a long time” and implied that Ivanka fair game in terms of their commitment to their father’s policy.

“She’s a grown-up. You can make the decisions for themselves. I mean, she’s 36. We are responsible for our decisions. In 2008, I was very proud of my mom, but I explained to disagree with her fundamentally on a few things, especially their opposition to equal marriage rights for LGBTQ Americans,” she said. “I’ve never defended that position because it was not what I believed was the right thing to do.”

Clinton said the liberals were too focused on “tolerance” when it comes to other minority groups. In their view, this is not enough.

“People tolerated the casual misogyny, but casual misogyny is perhaps the drug the initial. We have the freedom of speech, which I think is hugely important — and yet the people thought they could not dispute hateful things, because they are like — well, it is the freedom of speech. Well, freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences.”

The 38-year-old, serves as Vice-Chairman of the Clinton Foundation, and has two children with her husband, Mark Mezvinsky, is focused on the choice of the Democrats, but said the country had a long way to go to repair the damage that has been done.

“I think that the wreckage we see in this moment, will, I hope, be repaired, on the political point of view, if you said the Democrats elect,” Clinton. “But I think we are going to do to repair the sound in our country, the exposure of the real racist and sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic and anti-Semitic feeling, which is on the rise in our country – a red that has been exposed to.”
