(CNN) – As Chelsea Clinton continues to emerge as a public advocate for children and women, she's still not ruling out a future run for office.
The daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Chelsea told CNN's Nima Elbagir in Rwanda that following in her parents' footsteps was still an option.
"I'm grateful to live in a city and a state and a country where I really believe in my elected officials, and their ethos and their competencies," Clinton said. "Someday, if either of those weren't true, and I thought I could make more of a difference in the public sector, or if I didn't like how my city or state or country were being run, I'd have to ask and answer that question."
Clinton spoke to CNN in the middle of a nine-day, six-stop African trip to do work for The Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, alongside her father. The trip began in Malawi, and will include stops in Zambia, Tanzania, Zanzibar and South Africa.
Her response to questions about her political future hasn't changed much from April, when she told NBC she was "grateful to live in a city, in a state and a country where I strongly support my mayor, my governor, my president, my senators and my representative."
She similarly said if any of that changed, "I'd have to ask and answer that question."
