Clinton Foundation Facts
What I hate is that the media is treating the Clinton Foundation like it is some kind of gravy train for the Clintons. They never mention the charitable work that the foundation does. Furthermore, the Foundation publishes quarterly its list of donors:
"We are proud to have more than 300,000 contributors; 90% of our donations are $100 or less. Like all philanthropic organizations, the Foundation depends on contributions to pursue our work around the world. While not required by any law, but in keeping with a long-held commitment to transparency, the Clinton Foundation has for years listed all contributors dating back to the Foundation’s beginning on our website."
This transparency has allowed media and Republicans to comb through the list of 300,000 contributors and cherry pick a few that might look suspicious. On the other hand if you want to know anything about Donald Trump's financial dealings and charitable contributions (what few there are), you just have to take the Donald's word for it: "Believe Me!"
Oh and if you are interested in what the Foundation does with the donations, read this:
"Because of our work, more than 31,000 American schools are providing kids with healthy food choices in an effort to eradicate childhood obesity; more than 105,000 farmers in Malawi, Rwanda, and Tanzania are benefiting from climate-smart agronomic training, higher yields, and increased market access; more than 33,500 tons of greenhouse gas emissions are being reduced annually across the United States; over 450,000 people have been impacted through market opportunities created by social enterprises in Latin America, the Caribbean, and Asia; through the independent Clinton Health Access Initiative, over 11.5 million people in more than 70 countries have access to CHAI-negotiated prices for HIV/AIDS medications; an estimated 85 million people in the U.S. will be reached through strategic health partnerships developed across industry sectors at both the local and national level; and members of the Clinton Global Initiative community have made more than 3,500 Commitments to Action, which have improved the lives of over 430 million people in more than 180 countries."
Politicians are screaming, "shut it down, shut it down!" I ask why?
