Kim Kardashian has taken aim at President Donald Trump, claiming she finds things are “reverting backwards” since he took office earlier this year.
The reality star even suggested that four-year-old North West would be a better candidate for POTUS, in a new interview with Harper’s Bazaar Arabia.
Describing the current political climate as “really scary”, she explained: “Anyone can run the US better [than Trump]. My daughter would be better.
“We’ve worked so hard to get to where we were and to have so many things that we were so proud of in our country, to just literally revert backwards is the most frustrating thing.”
Kim was previously criticised for remaining silent in the lead-up to the US election last year, before eventually publishing an open letter on her website in which she endorsed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
Explaining her reluctance to comment on political matters, Kim told the magazine: “Sometimes I feel like I want to speak out more about political issues.
“You have to be really careful about what you say because a lot of things can be taken in the wrong context and I always want to be respectful. I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.”
Kim didn’t mention the fact that her husband, Kanye West, revealed he “would have voted for Trump” following the election result last year, though she did mention the fact she doesn’t follow Trump on Twitter.
Given Trump’s propensity to reply to most of the celebrities who criticise him, from Meryl Streep and Madonna to Kathy Griffin and the cast of ‘Saturday Night Live’, we’ll be keeping a close eye on his Twitter page in the next couple of days…
