Kim Kardashian Stands with Hillary Clinton
After her shocking revelation in Wonderwall’s autumn 2016 issue, the reality television star confirms in her official app which candidate she stands with. No, that answer no longer includes Donald Trump.
“A ‘quote’ of mine was released yesterday causing my phone to blow up by friends, family and even both candidates camps,” Kardashian shared in her app. “I want to explain the context in which I said I was ‘on the fence’ about my vote.”
In Wonderland, the fashion icon revealed that during a phone conversation with Caitlyn Jenner, an outspoken Trump supporter, Kardashian “encouraged” to her research and vote for the candidate “whose policies aligned with the things that matter” to her.
The reveal came to the surprise of many because of her early outspoken support for Clinton. In August 2015, the reality star proudly took to Instagram to post a picture of Clinton and husband Kanye West with the caption, “I got my selfie!!! I really loved hearing her speak & hearing her goals for our country!” At that point, we knew her allegiance was to Clinton (or so we thought).
Now, she sets the record straight.
“There was a point when I wasn’t 100% sure I was even going to vote in this election; I didn’t want to vote blindly. But I also thought about how not voting would mean that I wasn’t making my voice heard,” said Kardashian. “I decided to talk to my closest friends and family who I love and trust, to have an open conversation about politics.”
Luckily, she made her decision just in time. With the elections only weeks away, Kardashian joins the likes of fellow outspoken Clinton supporters including Demi Lovato, Kerry Washington, and Katy Perry to name a few.
“I found that 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,” Kardashian explains. “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.”
