In what many view as a sign of desperation regarding her struggling presidential campaign, former secretary of state and front-running Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton has recently suggested that former President Bill Clinton would play a major role in her administration.
In fact, Hillary Clinton stated that she would appoint her husband as something of a “czar” over the economy, ostensibly because he did such a great job managing it during his term in office in the 1990s.
But some, including billionaire businessman and presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump, have doubted Clinton’s reasoning for installing her husband so prominently in the White House, suspecting that there were ulterior motives.
During a Friday morning appearance on “Fox & Friends,” Trump suggested that the real reason Hillary wanted Bill in the White House with her was so she “can keep and eye on him,” according to The Hill.

One of the co-hosts put forward the notion that Hillary was merely trying to ride the coattails of Bill’s much higher favorability rating than her own, a notion that Trump seemed to dismiss.
“Maybe she’s saying that, or maybe she just wants him around the White House so she can keep her eye on him,” Trump stated, alluding to Bill’s documented history of following his wandering eye.
