Donald Trump stepped up his attacks on Hillary Clinton, accusing her of “Third World”-style corruption over her family’s charitable foundation and calling her unfit to hold office.
“It is a total embarrassment if our secretary of state can be bought or bribed or sold,” he told a rally in Austin, Texas after a damaging Associated Press report raised questions about whether donors to the Clinton Foundation paid cash for access to America’s top diplomat.
“It’s a disgrace, this is a threat to the foundation of democracy,” said Trump. “This is what happens in Third World countries.”
The Associated Press reported that more than half the people outside government who met Clinton while she was secretary of state donated money to the Clinton Foundation.
“Hillary Clinton is totally unfit to hold public office. It is impossible to figure out where the Clinton Foundation ends and the State Department begins,” Trump said.
