I suppose that, when you openly solicit donations from entire nations who still think stoning women to death for being raped is an acceptable practice, holding on to a couple hundred thousand from a guy with a big mouth and a penchant for “speaking his mind” about Mexican immigrants barely registers on your radar.
In her first television interview as a Presidential contender, Hillary Clinton (who was not asked what its like being a “feminist” candidate whose family is funded by decidedly oppressive regimes) called Trump’s comments that Mexican immigrants are, generally, rapists, inappropriate and expressed her “disappointment” that the Republican Party is not doing more to rein Trump in, because, apparently, that’s their job. At no time did she mention that Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka, a successful entrepreneur in her own right, have contributed somewhere in the ballpark of $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation, and the Clinton Foundation has no plans to return the money.
The Clinton Foundation has no plans to return tens of thousands of dollars in donations it received from Donald Trump — or at least none that it’s willing to share.
Trump has been feeling the heat after saying that Mexico sends “rapists” and murderers to the United States. His fellow Republican contenders, with the notable exception of Sen. Ted Cruz, have denounced those remarks, as has Hillary Clinton, who said on Tuesday that she was “very disappointed” in Trump’s comments.
So far, Serta, the PGA and Macys have all dumped Trump-branded products or events, though in the case of the PGA, the parting of ways may have been in the works before Trump made his now-notorious comments. But while major American corporations have found Trump’s feelings on immigration distasteful enough to drop his business, the Clinton Foundation has never really met a donation it didn’t like. So, I suppose, they’re just following policy.
I wonder what she’ll say when Presidential Nominee Trump asks her about it in a debate, though.
You laugh, but he’s now leading the pack. Your tears will do nothing to stop this.
