Chelsea Clinton: No Plans For Political Office

(TODAY Show)

By    |   Tuesday, 30 May 2017 09:35 AM

Chelsea Clinton Tuesday insisted she has no plans to run for political office, but she'll continue acting as an "activist" and will keep raising her voice online and offline concerning the Trump administration and other matters.

"One of my earliest memories is being 3 years old and standing on the side of one of my dad's campaign rallies, and a woman saying to me, Chelsea, do you think you'll run for governor of Arkansas," Clinton told NBC "Today" co-anchor Savannah Guthrie. "I think I said, 'I'm 3.' People have asked me this my whole life."

At the same time, Clinton said that she does not think being a citizen is something that just happens in an election year,

"We have to feel a responsibility every day, and these days, more than ever," said Clinton, who was on the program to promote her new children's book, "She Persisted," about 13 American women who changed the world.

Clinton said she continues to be inspired by her own mother, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

"She's working on her book," Chelsea Clinton said. "That's helping her process and heal. She remains as committed to the fight she's been engaged in for longer than either of us have been alive, and she's focused on what she can do to support campaigns, efforts to keep advancing women's rights and keep supporting families [and] children."

Clinton said she was sad for her mother after she lost her presidential bid, but now, she's "more focused on what do we do to protect and advance progress . . . I don't know if that's just in my DNA or if it's trying to live up to the example my parents have set for me. We always look towards the future."
