The former president wrote that while “it would be presumptive to assume a victory in November, now that Hillary is her party’s nominee, it would be irresponsible not to plan for it.”
“If Hillary is elected president, the Foundation’s work, funding, global reach and my role in it will present questions that must be resolved in a way that keeps the good work going while eliminating,” he continued. “Over the the last several months, members of the Foundation’s senior leadership, Chelsea and I have evaluated how the Foundation should operate if Hillary is elected.”
Clinton explained that if Hillary wins the election, “the Foundation will accept contributions only from US citizens, permanent residents and US-based independent foundations.”
On Monday morning, Donald Trump called on the Clintons to shut down the Foundation and return any donations received from countries that discriminate against women and gay people. (VIDEO: Trump — Shut Down The Clinton Foundation)
“That money should be given back,” Trump said Monday on Fox & Friends. “They should not take that money.”
