Bill Clinton says Hillary 'not out of touch' on wealth

Former U.S. President Bill Clinton said on Tuesday that his wife, Hillary, is “not out of touch,” after criticism that she had mishandled media questions about their personal wealth. Hillary Clinton told ABC News earlier this month that the couple had been “dead broke” after leaving the White House in 2001 and then drew more fire after suggesting to The Guardian last weekend that the Clintons are not “truly well off.” “It is factually true that we were several million dollars in debt,” Bill Clinton said Tuesday of the couple’s financial situation. He was speaking to NBC News’ David Gregory, in an interview that will air on Sunday. Bill Clinton said his wife, a former secretary of state and likely Democratic presidential contender in 2016, has been working to reduce poverty for as long as he has known her, and that this was reflected in her tenure in the U.S. Senate.
