Hillary Clinton Says She Understands ‘Hard Life’

Hillary Clinton

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton is seeking to refine comments she made about being “dead broke” when she and President Bill Clinton left the White House.

The former secretary of state tells ABC’s “Good Morning America”, “I fully appreciate how hard life is for so many Americans today.”

Clinton said she and former President Bill Clinton left the White House in 2001 roughly $12 million in debt, largely from legal bills. But she said, “We’ve continued to be blessed in the last 14 years.”

Clinton hinted Tuesday she might be leaning toward another run for president, saying, “I want to use the talents and resources that I have to make sure that others” have the same opportunities.

She said, “We have gone through some of the same challenges that many people have.”
