The reality TV star has made her political allegiances clear after she was quoted as saying she was “on the fence” about the upcoming election.
Kim Kardashian has assured fans she stands with Hillary Clinton in the upcoming US presidential election. The 35-year-old’s political leanings were called in to question over the weekend, when a quote was published saying she was “on the fence” about who to vote for later this year.
Kim Kardashian will not be voting Trump
On Friday the Evening Standard newspaper published a ‘quote’ from Kim’s interview with Wonderland magazine where she discussed being unsure of who to vote for. The quote read: “At first I thought, ‘Oh my god, I’m so Hillary [Clinton]’, but I had a long political call with Caitlyn last night about why she’s voting Trump. I’m on the fence.”
However it does not appear in the online version of the article currently on Wonderland’s website. After word got out that Kim might be considering voting Trump the reality star decided to set the record straight with a blog post on her official website.
“A "quote" of mine was released yesterday causing my phone to blow up by friends, family and even both candidates' camps, so I want to explain the context in which I said I was "on the fence" about my vote,” she began.
“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, so I decided to talk to my closest friends and family who I love and trust, to have an open conversation about politics.”
Kim added that she believes people should ask questions and do their research so they can vote for the candidate who best represents their beliefs. Speaking about the conversation she’d had with Caitlyn Jenner, Kim continued: “She encouraged me to do my research before making my decision and then vote for the candidate whose policies aligned with the things that matter most to me.”
“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. I found that without a doubt, I stand with Hillary. I'm with her.”
Kim concluded by firmly stating that she believes Hillary will “best represent our country and is the most qualified for the job”. She then added: “Now that I have made my choice I want to be clear... I would never judge anyone based on their political or religious beliefs. I believe that both candidates have the intention of making the country a safer and stronger place for every American, they just have different ideas about how we get there.”
