Donald Trump’s son Eric caused quite the controversy last week when he argued that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is guilty of the “ultimate hypocrisy” in relation to the liberal positions she takes. The comments were made after it was brought to light that the Clinton Foundation has been accepting donations from oppressive regimes.
On Wednesday, Fox News host Sean Hannity asked Trump the following, “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 the Republican presidential candidate and legendary businessman replied.
“The country is fed up with this corruption,” Trump continued. “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?”
“You’re supposed to be looking out for the interests of the United States of American,” he added of the Clinton Foundation. “Instead, you’re profiting off it.”
Earlier that day, Donald Trump also went after Clinton for her accumulation of wealth from public service.
“Hillary Clinton has perfected the politics of personal profit and even theft,” he commented. “She ran the State Department like her own personal hedge fund, doing favors for oppressive regimes.”
Trump then struck at Hillary even harder.
“Hillary Clinton’s tryout for the presidency has produced one deadly foreign policy disaster after another,” he commented. “No secretary of state has been more wrong, more often, in more places than Hillary Clinton. In just four years, Secretary Clinton managed to almost single-handedly destabilize the entire Middle East.”
