Hillary Clinton: 'I Regret' Saying We Were 'Dead Broke'

Posted: Updated:

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she regrets saying she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, were "dead broke" upon leaving the White House.

"I regret it. It was inartful," Clinton said in an interview on Fusion’s “AMERICA with Jorge Ramos." "It was accurate but we are so successful and we're so blessed by the success we've had and my husband has worked incredibly hard."

Clinton, who noted she and her husband are "indeed" worth millions, said she doesn't worry about her financial situation like she worries about families across the United States.

"What I worry about is not my family. I worry about other families in our country who feel like they're running in place. They're not getting ahead or maybe they're falling backwards," Clinton said. "And what I want to do, and this is what Bill has always done from the very beginning of his public life, is to try to create more ladders of opportunity for more Americans so that they can have the same opportunities that Bill and I have had."
