Kim Kardashian West: My daughter would make a better president than Trump
Kim Kardashian West made it clear in a recent interview that she’s no supporter of President Trump, insisting that even her four-year-old daughter would make for a better president.
“Anyone can run the U.S. better. My daughter would be better,” she told Harper’s Bazaar Arabia on Wednesday. “We’ve worked so hard to get to where we were and to have so many things that we were so proud of in our country, to just literally revert backwards is the most frustrating thing.
“Every single day when you can’t really believe what’s going on, the next day it’s something else even more crazy and tragic,” she said. “It’s really scary, the world that we’re living in now. And when you did feel safe at home, now with Trump in presidency you just don’t feel safe any more.”
Kardashian West said that she refuses to follow President Trump on Twitter but still follows his predecessor, Barack Obama.
Her husband, rapper Kanye West, famously said last November that if he had voted at all it would have been for Trump. West met with the then-president elect in December and posed for photos with him in the lobby of Trump Tower.
West deleted his tweets about the meeting after Trump took office, however, including one about how he had met with Trump to “discuss multicultural issues,” including “bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago.”
Kardashian West flirted with the idea of voting for Trump herself before eventually coming out in support of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton last September.
“At first I thought, ‘Oh my God, I’m so Hillary,’ but I had a long political call with Caitlyn [Jenner] last night about why she’s voting Trump. I’m on the fence,” she said in an interview with Wonderland magazine. “There was a point when I wasn’t 100% sure I was even going to vote in this election; I didn’t want to vote blindly.
“I found that without a doubt, I stand with Hillary,” she later said. “I’m with her. I believe Hillary will best represent our country and is the most qualified for the job.”
