The run-up to the US Presidential election hasn’t been without its share of anxiety and drama: who will the American citizens vote for – Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump?
Well, reality TV star and social media celebrity Kim Kardashian has made up her mind and is not afraid to say it out loud. According to Daily Mail, the 35-year-old released a statement on Saturday saying that she is voting for Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
In a post titled “I’m With Her,” Kardashian wrote: “Without a doubt, I stand with Hillary. I’m with her. I believe Hillary will best represent our country and is the most qualified for the job. This year, I’m not just voting for myself, but also for my children, and I took that into careful consideration when I made my decision.”
This should settle the debate that had sparked off when Kardashian, in an interview to Wonderland magazine, was quoted as saying that she is “on the fence” about whom to vote for.
Elaborating on her support for Clinton, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians actress wrote on her website, “I had a long conversation with Caitlyn (her former stepfather), who has always been open about her political views and she encouraged me to do my research before making my decision… And so that’s what I did. I thought about the things that are so important to me that they outweigh everything else, such as gun control and protecting women’s rights to safe and legal abortion.”
