US Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has dismissed the idea that the American people do not see her honest and trustworthy to take the White House, insisting that they “should and do trust” her.
“I have every confidence that during the course of this campaign, people will know who will fight for them when they need them, and that’s the person who I am and what I will do if I am president,” Clinton said during her first national TV interview as a 2016 presidential candidate.
She blamed the “barrage of attacks that are largely fomented by and coming from the right” for fueling a perception of untrustworthiness among the majority of voters in the United States.
Clinton claimed that she faced “the same kind of onslaught” in her two New York Senate campaigns and her confirmation as secretary of state.
And that is why a majority of Americans say they do not see her as honest and trustworthy, Clinton told CNN.
