Is Hillary better suited to be our leader because she says foreign leaders love her? Or do you think we need a leader that the world will think twice before messing with?
The former Secretary of State said foreign leaders have reached out to see if they can endorse her to stop the GOP frontrunner from becoming the next leader of the Free World.
Clinton was responding to a question from a man, who said he was the son of immigrants, during a Democratic Ohio town hall on Sunday when she revealed she has received international support.
‘One argument that I am uniquely qualified to bring, because of my service as Secretary of State, is what [Trump’s] presidency would mean for our country and our standing in the world,’ she said.
‘I am already receiving messages from leaders, and I am having foreign leaders ask if they can endorse me to stop Donald Trump, and I am like no, this is up to Americans, thank you very much.’
When CNN moderator Jake Tapper pressed Clinton on specific foreign leaders who have contacted her, she pointed to the public support she received from Italian Prime Minister Matto Renzi.
Renzi said last month that although he would work with anyone who wins the US election come November, he is personally hoping it will be Clinton.
‘As an Italian citizen and leader of the Democratic Party, and in total respect for American democracy, I am rooting for Hillary Clinton,’ he said during a news conference with foreign media.
When Tapper asked if Clinton would reveal who had privately contacted her, she laughed and said ‘No Jake, we’re holding that in reserve.’
