After putting an emphasis on Haitian Americans, Clinton said, “We really feel a sense of connection to Haiti and all of the challenges that Haiti has faced.
“The continuing, terrible consequences of the weather, the earthquake in 2010, so I want to be a good partner with the people of Haiti,” she said.
And as I told Larry, I want to work with leaders of the Haitian American community to really see the best way to be that good partner.
“There’s work to be done. More work than can be done by any one person alone,” she said, as she cleared her throat.
“It kind of chokes me up,” she added, before turning to an aide behind her and coughing.
“I care so much about doing this,” she said as her voice grew hoarse and she stood with her hands on her chest. “But I can’t do any of it unless I win. Let’s make it happen!”
With that, she quickly ended her remarks in less than four minutes, turned her back to the cameras and coughed some more.
