Amal Clooney News: Human Rights Lawyer Showing A Strong Interest In The U.S. Presidential Race? [VIDEO]

She's not even eligible to vote in the United States (yet), but it looks like George Clooney's wife Amal has a huge interest in this country's Presidential election. In fact, the British-born human rights lawyer is not only backing Democratic nominee hopeful Hillary Clinton, but she's also taken the opportunity to slam Donald Trump in the media several times, too.

Clooney--who was born to Muslim parents in Lebanon--has expressed her disdain for mogul/reality star/GOP frontrunner Donald Trump by hinting that he is not only sexist and racist, but that he won't be winning the Presidential race in November, either.

As Fortune pointed out on Friday, at the end of an interview with the BBC about her defense of Azerbaijani journalist Khadija Ismayilova Clooney was asked about the American presidential election and spoke on Trump's remarks that he is "great" with women by saying, "He has a really high negative rating. I don't think he's going to get much of the women's vote as a result of that."

What's more, Clooney skewered Trump, especially over his controversial statements about illegal immigrants and how he plans on building a wall along the southern border of the United States if he is elected to the oval office.

Clooney explained, "When you listen to what the leading candidate on the Republican side has been saying about building walls, about excluding Mexicans and a complete shutdown of all Muslims entering in, and if you actually look at what he specifically said in that now infamous speech about Muslims, he kept saying, 'They only want jihad. They don't believe in our way of life. They don't respect our system. And when he says 'they' and you watch the media coverage afterwards, people, I think, should have been saying 'Do you mean the 1.5 billion people around the world who fit that description? Do you mean the people who are U.S. citizens who are members of your military who are, the vast majority of whom are not violent or extremists in any way?'"

She then added, "If, at the end of all of this, he gets beaten by the person who becomes the first female president of the United States, then I think that would send a very positive message from the electorate back to him as to what they really think of those points of view."
