Kim Kardashian wants to be more active in politics. During an interview published Wednesday with Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, Kardashian said she feels the nation is going “backwards.”
“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,” Kardashian said.
When asked about who should be running the country, the Hollywood socialite took a biting shot at President Donald Trump:
“Not the President now. Anyone can run the US better. 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.
Every single day when you can’t really believe what’s going on, the next day it’s something else even more crazy and tragic. It’s really scary, the world that we’re living in now. And when you did feel safe at home, now with Trump in presidency you just don’t feel safe any more.”
Kardashian’s daughter, North, is just 4 years old. By the time she’s able to run for president, Trump will have been out of office for anywhere from 19 to 23 years.
There were quite a few reactions to Kardashian’s comments.

Two years ago, Kanye West, Kardashian’s husband, said he plans to run for president in 2020. Knowing how out there West’s statements have been in the past, maybe Kardashian is aiming for a spot on his campaign.
