Trump Campaign SLAMS Hillary, Washington Post For Scathing Trump Foundation Accusations
Yesterday the Washington Post published scathing accusations that Donald Trump used $258,000 of charity money from his own Trump Foundation to solve his legal problems.
Ironically, Hillary Clinton excoriated Trump in a statement, according to the Los Angeles Times, calling him "a fraud who believes the rules don't apply to him."
Last night, Trump's senior communications advisor Jason Miller fired back with this press release:
"In typical Washington Post fashion, they’ve gotten their facts wrong. It is the Clinton Foundation that is set up to make sure the Clintons personally enrich themselves by selling access and trading political favors. The Trump Foundation has no paid board, no management fees, no rent or overhead, and no family members on its payroll.
"There was not, and could not be, any intent or motive for the Trump Foundation to make improper payments. All contributions are reported to the IRS, and all Foundation donations are publicly disclosed. Mr. Trump is generous both with his money and with his time. He has provided millions of dollars to fund his Foundation and a multitude of other charitable causes.
"The Post’s reporting is peppered with inaccuracies and omissions from a biased reporter who is clearly intent on distracting attention away from the corrupt Clinton Foundation, a vehicle for the Clintons to peddle influence at the expense of the American people. Mr. Trump personally and the Trump Foundation, however, are staying focused on their charitable giving to veterans, the police, children and other deserving recipients.”
Today, Miller released another statement slamming Hillary's charitable foundation woes, writing:
“It’s as plain as day Bill and Hillary Clinton personally profited off of the Clinton Foundation’s work in earthquake-ravaged Haiti. Bill Clinton was paid $260,000 for a speech that lasted less than an hour by an industry association whose members would later benefit from Clinton Foundation grants. If that isn’t a quid pro quo, I don’t know what is. Bill and Hillary Clinton should return every penny from that exorbitantly paid speech and they should explain this latest example of corrupt dealing at the Clinton Foundation.”
What do you think of this?
