Eric Trump said Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is guilty of “ultimate hypocrisy” in relation to the liberal positions she takes, in light of the oppressive regimes supporting the Clinton Foundation.
On Wednesday, Fox News host Sean Hannity asked the younger Trump regarding the former secretary of state, “How do you claim the mantle, as a champion of women’s rights, gay rights, lesbian rights, religious freedom, as Hillary does, [and then] take money from counties that execute gays and lesbians? That tell women how to dress, that tell women they can’t go to work or school unless a man approves … and never offer any criticism?”
“It’s the ultimate hypocrisy,” the son of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump replied.
“The country is fed up with this corruption. It’s crazy. I mean here’s somebody that between 2007 and 2014 made $150 million, all while being secretary of state. How do you do that as a government employee?” Trump queried.
“You’re supposed to be looking out for the interests of the United States of America. Instead you’re profiting off of it,” he added, noting that the Clinton Foundation has extremely high expense ratios for what is supposed to be an entity involved in charitable work.
In a speech earlier in the day, Donald Trump went after Clinton’s accumulation of wealth from public service. “Hillary Clinton has perfected the politics of personal profit and even theft. She ran the State Department like her own personal hedge fund, doing favors for oppressive regimes,” he said.
The candidate also noted that her time as the nation’s highest-ranking foreign affairs official was fraught with missteps. “Hillary Clinton’s tryout for the presidency has produced one deadly foreign policy disaster after another,” he said.
“No secretary of state has been more wrong, more often, in more places than Hillary Clinton,” Trump added, pointing to Syria, Iran and Libya as prime examples. “In just four years, Secretary Clinton managed to almost single-handedly destabilize the entire Middle East.”
