President Barack Obama spoke alongside then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as he held a Cabinet meeting at the White House in 2012.

In the wake of an interview with The Atlantic, which was widely regarded as an attack on President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton has reportedly reached out to her former boss and clarified her intentions.

The former secretary of state, and potential 2016 presidential candidate, called the president on Tuesday to "make sure he knows that nothing she said was an attempt to attack him," Politico reported, citing a statement from a Clinton spokesman.

The statement from Clinton's spokesman said there are "honest differences on some issues," which include "the wicked challenge" of Syria, and that Clinton's opinions had already been made public in her memoir, Politico reported.
