• Trump Defends His 100k Donation to Clinton Foundation: ‘They Kiss My Ass’

    The billionaire mogul Donald Trump said Thursday night during a New Hampshire campaign swing that both Bill and Hillary Clinton personally approached him about making donations to the Clinton Foundation.

    Unlike foreign governments and companies at the center of the Clinton scandal, Trump said he never received any special government favors for his money and was never promised anything.

    “But they do kiss my ass,” he jeered.

    Trump, who is considering a run for the White House in 2016, reportedly gave at least $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation.

    “I wish they would spend the money more wisely,” he said. “And certainly I wish they would not spend it on themselves,” he said, citing former President Clinton and his daughter Chelsea Clinton’s recent visit to Africa.

    “It’s supposed to be for good causes, not for luxury airplane flights,” he added.

    Trump additionally argued his donations did not disqualify him from criticizing Hillary Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic nomination in 2016.

    “Nobody has been tougher on her than I have,” he said. “I haven’t given her money,” he added. “I’ve given her foundation money to be used properly.”

    Trump said he plans on making a final decision on a White House run “in June.”
