DENVER - Bill Clinton said on Wednesday he would no longer give paid speeches if his wife, Hillary Clinton, is elected US president.
Republicans and media commentators have criticized both Clintons for earning millions of dollars from paid speeches, saying the practice raises the possibility of conflicts of interest.The former president said he would continue to give speeches without compensation if Hillary Clinton, the front-runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, enters the White House.
"I will still give speeches though on the subjects I'm interested in, and I've really enjoyed those things," he told Bloomberg TV at a Clinton Foundation conference in Denver.
Asked whether he would keep giving paid speeches if Hillary Clinton entered the White House, Clinton said: "No. I don't think so. I don't think that - because once you get to be president then you're just making a daily story."
