Lecture: Chelsea Clinton Warns of Sexism, Racism, Islamophobia in Trump’s America, Video
Chelsea Clinton appeared to take a veiled swipe at President Donald Trump when she declared that “sexism is not an opinion” and “Islamophobia is not an opinion” during her remarks Monday at the CARE national conference in Washington, D.C.
Former 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s daughter said “those of us that have been blessed” should right the wrongs that exist in U.S. society. Clinton did not offer an explanation of what those steps may be before launching into a laundry list of threatening viewpoints that should be opposed.
“I think, though, that we also have to recognize particularly at this moment that sexism is not an opinion. Islamophobia is not an opinion. Racism is not an opinion. Homophobia is not an opinion. Jingoism is not an opinion,” Clinton told the audience.
