Clinton says approached by Republicans fleeing trump


WASHINGTON:  Hillary Clinton says she has been approached by a number of Republicans looking to back her White House campaign, rather than throw their weight behind their party’s presumptive nominee Donald Trump. Speaking to CBS’s “Face the Nation” in an interview broadcast Sunday, Clinton said she was reaching across the aisle to Republicans unwilling to be associated with the billionaire’s incendiary White House bid. “Obviously I’m reaching out to Democrats, Republicans, Independents, all voters who want a candidate who is running a campaign based on issues,” said the 69-year-old former secretary of state. “I am asking people to come join this campaign and I’ve had a lot of outreach on Republicans in the last days who say that they are interested in talking about that.” Trump has raised howls of protest within his own party with his harsh, free-wheeling speech and proposals ranging from banning Muslims from entering the United States to building a wall on the southern border to keep out Mexican migrants to slashing US funding for NATO so allies pay more.
