Hillary Clinton Decided to Run at Oscar de la Renta’s Dominican Republic Beachfront Mansion


Hillary Clinton has embarked on a push to be a candidate of the people, but her decision to run for office came while vacationing in the beachfront mansion of fashion icon Oscar de la Renta.

The AP’s Julie Pace reported that Clinton, armed with a 500-page binder, decided to run for president while staying in longtime friend de la Renta’s mansion in the Dominican Republic.

"This is just part of her life. This is the life… and yet for most Americans the idea of jetting off to a beachfront mansion in the Dominican Republic for the holidays is just very different than their experiences," Pace said.

In her presidential announcement video, Clinton declared that everyday Americans need a "champion" and she wants to be that champion.

Following her video, Clinton hopped into a van she dubbed the "Scooby Doo Van" on a thousand-mile road trip from New York to Iowa.

The trip is designed to make Clinton appear more approachable. The road trip with pit stops at gas stations and Chipotle are part of an attempt to shake off the bad publicity Clinton got for her huge speaking fees, controversial acceptance of foreign money to the Clinton Foundation, and email scandal.
