Former president Bill Clinton offered some advice on Thursday night to those with future presidential aspirations by saying that you need to have a clear message on why you are running, Washington Free Beacon reported.
Clinton joined former president George W. Bush at Bush’s Presidential Center in Dallas, Texas, where they exchanged ideas on what makes a strong leader on today’s world stage.
David Rubenstein, the moderator, and a billionaire financier asked the 42nd and 43rd commanders-in-chief about the most important quality of someone looking to become president.
“Humility,” Bush said. “I think it’s really important to know what you don’t know and listen to people who do know what you don’t know.”
Clinton agreed with Bush and then added that you have to know why you are running.
“If you want to be president, realize it’s about the people, not about you. And when it’s over—that’s what a lot of these people who are real arrogant in office, they forget. Time passes and it passes more quickly than you know,” Clinton said.
“You want to be able to say people are better off when I quit, kids had a better future, things were coming together. You don’t want to say, ‘God, look at all the people I beat or the people I worked over,'” Clinton said.
Hillary Clinton’s loss in the 2016 presidential election has been attributed by many to her lack of a clear message during the campaign. Mika Brzezinski, MSNBC co-host, and Clinton supporter told Clinton in an interview in January 2016 that she had “trouble understanding Clinton’s message,” according to the Washington Free Beacon.
In this country only one President has ever told the people he is interested them, promised them what he would do, then went to work trying to make it happen. That would be Trump who is turning Washington upside down.
God Bless President Trump and his family. We the people have spoken we want him there and we want him doing stuff for the people.
