The mom of two, who is married to investment banker Marc Mezvinsky, shares that her daughter Charlotte is just entering nursery school, and admits that her support for her mother goes way past her political and social involvement.
“With my husband, there’s no one I trust more than my mom,” Clinton says. “If, God forbid, anything were to happen to Marc and me, my mother would take care of my children. There’s no greater vote of trust and faith and love than that.
“So as a daughter, it doesn’t make sense to me,” she adds of how anyone could call her mother untrustworthy.
“We were friends long before this election, we will be friends long after this election — our friendship didn’t start in politics and it certainly is not going to end because of politics,” Clinton says.
“I have tremendous respect for Ivanka. I love her family. She’s a working mom like I am. We have so much more in common than we have disagreement about.”
