Following Sunday’s terror attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando, the violently anti-gay stance of the Islamic ideology is coming under increased scrutiny. Specifically, GOP presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump is criticizing Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation for taking funds from foreign states whose legal codes reflect this radical ideology.
Trump called for Clinton to return the funds in a Facebook post on Monday:
Indeed, The Clinton Foundation has taken tens of millions of dollars from these countries. In addition to Saudi Arabia, The Clinton Foundation has taken money from at least 6 other majority Muslim nations whose laws harshly punish homosexuality. The donors and amounts given are taken directly from The Clinton Foundation‘s own website:
|COUNTRY||AMOUNT GIVEN||NOTES ON LGBT LAWS|
