Videos and Photos Bill Clinton was in Amsterdam Saturday

De oud-president dronk een kop koffie en at een stuk zelf gebakken appeltaart. Clinton was kennelijk zo onder de indruk van de appeltaart dat hij een beveiliger liet vragen of hij een hele appeltaart mee mocht nemen. "We bakken ze zelf", zo vertelt eigenaar Tiel Netel van het café. "En vonden dat natuurlijk geen probleem. Ze hebben een hele taart meegenomen."

Bill Clinton verbleef zo’n anderhalf uur in de bruine kroeg op de hoek van de Prinsengracht en de Brouwersgracht in het centrum van de hoofdstad

Statement by President Clinton

Our nation’s permanent mission is to form a ‘more perfect union’ – deepening the meaning of freedom, broadening the reach of opportunity, strengthening the bonds of community. That mission has inspired and empowered us to extend rights to people previously denied them. Every time we have done that, it has strengthened our nation. Now we should do it again, in New York, with marriage equality. For more than a century, our Statue of Liberty has welcomed all kinds of people from all over the world yearning to be free. In the 21st century, I believe New York’s welcome must include marriage equality.!/notes/president-bill-clinton/statement-by-president-clinton/10150184600914866
