Chelsea Clinton has been pictured taking a private jet to an event devoted to environmental issues.
While campaigning on behalf of her mother, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, Chelsea Clinton flew to Asheville, North Carolina, the site of a ‘clean energy roundtable’ on Wednesday, according to Breitbart.
The event, which was staged by the Clinton campaign, brings together high-profile leaders in business and public life to discuss ways to preserve the environment.
Clinton flew to Asheville from Greenville, North Carolina, which is approximately a five-hour drive and around 330 miles.
Footage of Chelsea Clinton boarding the jet was first posted by the NTK Network.
Earlier in the election season, the Clinton team pledged that it would run a ‘carbon neutral’ campaign by having its surrogates and operatives use more environment-friendly modes of transportation rather than private jets.
Asheville has gained a reputation in recent years as an up-and-coming town that boasts of an increasingly ‘green’ economy.
While campaigning against Democratic rival Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire this past November, Hillary Clinton broke her pledge to stay carbon neutral when she was seen boarding a private plane just hours after receiving an endorsement from a powerful environmental group.
Video footage obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com shows the Democratic front-runner climbing aboard a Learjet model 60 aircraft at the Lebanon, New Hampshire municipal airport.
