Hillary Clinton said in a speech in 2013 that she wants more successful business people to run for political office, as one can not be bought, by vested interests, if you are wealthy. Well, perhaps Hillary should support Donald Trump, then?
As reported by Breitbart:
In a speech made public by Wikileaks — which released an email from Hillary for America Research Director Tony Carrk containing three attached speeches given at private Goldman Sachs events — Clinton spoke and took audience questions at the “Builders and Innovators Summit” hosted by Goldman Sachs on October 29, 2013.
Calling her “Madame President,” a male attendee asked Clinton: “My question is, as entrepreneurs, we risk a lot. And Mike Bloomberg had 30 billion other reasons than to take office. Do we need a wholesale change in Washington that has more to do with people that don’t need the job than have the job?”
“That’s a really interesting question,” Clinton replied. “You know, I would like to see more successful business people run for office. I really would like to see that because I do think, you know, you don’t have to have $30 billion, but you have a certain level of freedom. And there’s that memorable phrase from a former member of the Senate: ‘You can be maybe rented but never bought.’ And I think it’s important to have people with those experiences.”
