Chelsea Clinton talked to Cosmopolitan recently about her mother's illness and Republican nominee Donald Trump's reference to her father's infidelity

"I was going to say something extremely rough to Hillary, to her family, and I said to myself, 'I can't do it,'" Trump said at the first presidential debate Monday night. He later clarified to CNN that he was referring to former President Bill Clinton's extramarital affairs.

When asked about this comment, Clinton said, "well, my reaction to that is just what my reaction has been kind of every time Trump has gone after my mom or my family, which is that it's a distraction from his inability to talk about what's actually at stake in this election and to offer concrete, comprehensive proposals."

Trump told CNN's Dana Bash that he held back out of "respect for Chelsea Clinton."

"Candidly, I don't remember a time in my life when my parents and my family weren't being attacked, and so it just sort of seems to be in that tradition, unfortunately," the former first daughter continued.

"What I find most troubling by far are Trump's … continued, relentless attacks on whole swaths of our country and even our global community: women, Muslims, Americans with disabilities, a Gold Star family."

Clinton also addressed her mother's health, specifically her recent pneumonia diagnosis.

"I didn't know that she had pneumonia," she revealed. "I didn't know she had pneumonia until she came over to my apartment. So I don't think it was a conscious choice. I mean, she didn't even tell me. I think she just expected she would power through it as she has always powered through everything.

"As her daughter, I wish she would have listened to her doctor and taken a couple days off when her doctor told her she needed to get some rest, and I'm grateful she did finally listen to her doctor and she took a couple days off," Clinton continued. "And I think it was clear last night that she is — you know, she certainly looks healthier at her age than I feel at 36 at this moment. I loved her answer about stamina, and yes, I think when anyone has traveled to 112 countries and a million miles, and sat through 11 hours of congressional hearings all in one day, they can then kind of have that conversation with my mom. But until then, I think that she wins that argument any and every day."
