President Obama called Dorothy Rodham a strong, determined and gifted person" Tuesday and said his thoughts are with the "entire Clinton family."
The comments came during a signing ceremony in the Oval Office.
From the White House transcript:
Ms. Rodham was a remarkable person. Anybody who knows her history knows what a strong, determined and gifted person she was. For her to have been able to live the life that she did and to see her daughter succeed at the pinnacle of public service in this country, I’m sure was deeply satisfying to her.
My thoughts, Michelle’s thoughts, the entire White House’s thoughts go out to the entire Clinton family. And I know that she will be remembered as somebody who helped make a difference in this country and this world.
