The Saudi Connection

Donald Trump recently blasted the Clinton Foundation for taking donations from Saudi Arabia, saying that she should return their money because they have a poor human rights record. “I am calling on her to immediately return the $25 million plus she got from them for the Clinton Foundation!”

And when Sean Hannity on Fox News asked Trump “Would you take money from the Saudi?” Trump said no.

But according to the New York Daily News, Trump has taken lots of money from the Saudis. In fact, just last year Trump said “Saudi Arabia — and I get along great with all of them. They buy apartments from me. They spend $40 million, $50 million. Am I supposed to dislike them? I like them very much.”

So, who would probably be more influenced by the Saudi government? Remember, the Clintons do not make any money personally from the Clinton Foundation. And we don’t know how far in bed Trump is with the Saudis, because he won’t release his tax returns.
