Donald Trump stepped up his attacks on Hillary Clinton by accusing her of ‘Third World’ corruption after revelations about donor access to the Democratic candidate.
The Republican nominee called the revelations about Clinton and her family’s charitable foundation a ‘disgrace’ and a ‘threat to the foundation of democracy’ at a rally in Austin, Texas.
A report revealed that more than half the people outside government who met Clinton while she was Secretary of State donated money to the Clinton Foundation.
‘It is a total embarrassment if our secretary of state can be bought or bribed or sold,’ Trump said.
‘It’s a disgrace, this is a threat to the foundation of democracy. This is what happens in Third World countries.’
The Associated Press reported that at least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had telephone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs.
Those 85 donors contributed a combined $156million, the AP said.
