Donald Trump today called for the closure of the Clinton Foundation, describing the ex-president’s nonprofit as the “most corrupt enterprise in political history.”
In a statement, the real-estate mogul said that Bill and Hillary Clinton have “spent decades as insiders lining their own pockets and taking care of donors instead of the American people.” He added, “It must be shut down immediately.”
Before he ran for president, Trump gave about a quarter of a million dollars to the organization.
Here is Trump’s full statement:
DONALD J. TRUMP STATEMENT ON CLINTON FOUNDATION: SHUT IT DOWN
Hillary Clinton is the defender of the corrupt and rigged status quo. The Clintons have spent decades as insiders lining their own pockets and taking care of donors instead of the American people. It is now clear that the Clinton Foundation is the most corrupt enterprise in political history. What they were doing during Crooked Hillary’s time as Secretary of State was wrong then, and it is wrong now. It must be shut down immediately.
