Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she was “all in” on President Biden’s reelection bid in a Thursday interview.
“When I look at what’s been accomplished with the team that was put together, I am very impressed,” Clinton said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “And I’m all in to reelect people who got things done. That’s what this country needs.”
Clinton acknowledged what she described as “legitimate” questions about Biden’s age, but she suggested the long list of Biden’s accomplishments should outweigh those concerns.
“The question is legitimate, but the conclusion that people draw is, I think, off base. Look, I am supporting President Biden and Vice President Harris because of what they’ve gotten accomplished. I’m kind of old fashioned that way,” she said, jokingly. “I like to see people, as I said, tackle big problems, bring people together and try to forge solutions.”
She touted the Biden administration’s legislative achievements, mentioning specifically the investments in infrastructure, clean energy and efforts to lower drug prices.
“And I don’t know about anybody else, but I’m kind of happy that we’re fixing our bridges and our roads and the rest of our infrastructure,” she said. “And I’m thrilled that we are going to compete with China on advanced manufacturing and that we’re going to make the transition to clean energy as quickly as we possibly can, plus bring down drug prices.”
“So when people say to me, ‘Well, he’s old.’” Clinton continued. “Yeah, that’s right. But look at what he’s gotten done. And then, if that’s not enough for you, look at the alternative.”
Clinton also said she was at the White House two days ago and met with the president and first lady, and, perhaps as a nod to questions on Biden’s age, she said, “and I love their energy, their commitment, their determination.”
