Hillary Clinton says Ivanka Trump will never become president because Americans have already run out of patience with her father.
‘That’s not going to happen, the failed presidential candidate said in an interview with the Dutch public TV station KRO-NCRV.
‘We don’t want any more inexperienced Trumps in the White House.’
Clinton said she didn’t know who the first female president would be, but pledged that ‘I’m going to be there cheering her on – assuming I agree with her.’
Program host Eva Jinek, who said she has kept a cheerful photo of Bill and Hillary Clinton with her in every dorm room, apartment and home she’s ever lived in, warned her that the 2016 election is proof unexpected things can happen in American politics.

‘Well, that’s true,’ Clinton replied. ‘But, you know, “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me”.’
‘And I think the American people have seen for themselves what happens when a reality-TV candidate wins, she mocked.
Clinton’s overseas book tour has already seen her embrace controversy – and then apologize for sparking it.
She said last week in India that she beat Donald Trump in regions of the U.S. ‘that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward. And his whole campaign, “Make America Great Again,” was looking backwards.’
She also said women who stood with Trump were responding to ‘ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.’

Clinton was widely panned last week for saying in India that Trump’s 2016 campaign was ‘backwards’ and that women who voted for him were blindly following their husbands
The former secretary of state issued a mea culpa Saturday on Facebook, admitting that her comments may have ‘upset people and can be misinterpreted.’
‘I said that places doing better economically typically lean Democratic, and places where there is less optimism about the future lean Republican,’ she acknowledged. ‘That doesn’t mean the coasts versus the heartland, it doesn’t even mean entire states. In fact, it more often captures the divisions between more dynamic urban areas and less prosperous small towns within states.’
‘I meant no disrespect to any individual or group. And I want to look to the future as much as anybody,’ she insisted.
Hillary says Trump ‘has undermined the office’ of the U.S. presidency ‘and used it to enrich himself and his family’
Donald Trump’s message triumphed in 2016 as he won more than 300 Electoral Votes despite winning fewer individual ballots than his Democratic rival
Clinton said she is disgusted with the Trump presidency so far, calling it a ‘constant train wreck that never goes away,’ and added defensively that she had ‘tried to warn people about everything I could, that he should not be anywhere near the Oval Office.’
The president ‘has undermined the office and used it to enrich himself and his family, Disregarded laws [and] ethical standards, has been undermining the institutions from the free press to the judiciary,’ she claimed.
‘He’s crossed into a territory of behavior and actions that are unpredictable, that are erratic.’
‘I really believe there’s an enormous amount of pent-up energy to take the country back from the Trump administration,’ Clinton mused, projecting that a Democratic Party takeover of the House of Representatives in November could be the first step.
