Hillary Clinton Explains Why She Attended Trump’s Wedding

“I thought it would be fun,” Hillary Clinton said Monday when asked why she went to Donald Trump’s wedding in 2005, CNN reported.

The front-running candidate for next year’s Democratic presidential nomination was responding to a Trump comment during last week’s Republican debate. He said she was obligated to attend the wedding because he had made a donation to her family’s charitable foundation.

Clinton disputed that claim while campaigning in New Hampshire. “I happened to be planning to be in Florida and I thought it would be fun to go to his wedding because it is always entertaining,” she told reporters. “Now that he is running for president, it is a little more troubling.”

Clinton said she took part in Trump’s lavish wedding at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, even though “I didn’t know him that well.”

During the debate, one of the moderators asked the billionaire businessman how he benefited from contributing to the Clintons’ charity. He replied: “Hillary Clinton, I said be at my wedding, and she came to my wedding. She had no choice because I gave to (the) foundation.”

Clinton campaign communications director Jen Palmieri said “it hurt her feelings, I'm sure, to hear him suggest that he didn't want her there for her company.”
