US Republican Party’s biggest donor Charles Koch says “it’s possible” that Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton could make a better president than the remaining GOP candidates based on the example set by her husband’s years in the White House.
In an interview with ABC  to air on Sunday, when asked whether it’s possible that another Clinton could be better than another Republican, Koch responded, “It’s possible. It’s possible.”
He added that he believes Bill Clinton was a better president “in some ways” than George W. Bush.
“In other ways, I mean [Bill Clinton] wasn’t an exemplar. But as far as the growth of government, the increase in spending, It was 2.5 times [more] under Bush than it was under Clinton,” Koch said.
In his interview, Koch noted that is a result of his disgust with the rhetoric in the Republican primary, and he even suggested Clinton could be a better choice for the country than the remaining crop of GOP candidates.
When asked if he could see himself supporting Clinton’s run for president, Koch hesitantly said, “We would have to believe her actions would be quite different than her rhetoric, let me put it that way.”

Charles Koch and his brother, David, wield significant financial and political influence on US , both directly and indirectly, via various advocacy and lobbying organizations.
The brothers are the sons of Fred C. Koch, who founded Koch Industries, the second-largest privately held company in .
The brothers have contributed heavily to conservative campaigns and think tanks. They are among the best-known Republican donors, and potential GOP candidates court their favor.
The Kochs spent some $400 million on US politics in 2015 and are planning to cash out about $900 million to shape this year’s presidential election.
