While some voters may view Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton as dishonest, her daughter,
Chelsea Clinton, says there’s no one she trusts more.

“With my husband, there’s no one I trust more than my mom,” Clinton said Friday during an appearance on The View. “If, God forbid, anything were to happen to Marc [Mezvinsky] and me, my mother would take care of my children. There’s no greater vote of trust and faith and love than that. So as a daughter, it doesn’t make sense to me” that polls show some voters find Hillary Clinton untrustworthy.

The former first daughter made similar comments about her mother in a rare interview with the press on Thursday, saying, “I don’t trust anyone more than my mom.”

“If anything were to happen to me, my mother would take care of my children,” the 36-year-old said, according to CNN. “I couldn’t imagine a better sign of faith or trust than that.”

Clinton, who married investment banker Marc Mezvinsky in 2010, has two children – Charlotte and Aidan.

The couple met when they were children in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. They began dating in 2005 and confirmed their engagement to PEOPLE in 2009 after they sent a mass email to their loved ones.

“We… wanted to… share that we are engaged!” the couple wrote on Nov. 27.

While sources have told PEOPLE that Mezvinsky is Clinton’s “equal in every way,” no one can deny the strong bond between Clinton and her mother.

As the only child of powerful political figures, Clinton has always been in the spotlight, although she’s been more open to speaking to reporters in support of her mother’s campaign.

At the 2016 Democratic National Convention, Clinton introduced her mother and said she was “grateful that she is Charlotte and Aidan’s grandmother.”

The mother of two also told reporters that she and her husband would observe the upcoming 9/11 anniversary at home.

“I haven’t talked to my mother about how she plans to observe the day,” Clinton said. “I know my husband and I will be home … so certainly we’ll be particularly grateful when I look down at my children that we are safer now. I recognize that we still have tremendous work to do.”
