Hillary Clinton went after Donald Trump hard over the controversy about donations to veterans groups, claiming a reporter had to “shame him into actually making his contribution,” but in doing so exposed a shameful reality about herself.
Clinton was reacting to the presumptive Republican presidential nominee announcing Tuesday that he had raised $5.6 million in donations for veterans groups, which included a personal check for $1 million.
In response to her criticism, Trump challenged the press to delve into Clinton’s contributions to vets.
“When I raise money for the veterans … it’s a massive amount of money,” he said. “Find out how much Hillary Clinton’s given to the veterans — nothing.”
Some in the media did just that and while the total is greater than that — $70,000 over a six year period — when compared to Trump’s generosity it appears as next to nothing.
Breitbart News reported:
According to recent public records of the Clinton Family Foundation, the family donated $25,000 in 2009, $20,000 in 2010, $5,000 in 2011, $15,000 in 2012, and in 2014, they donated $5,000.
The Clintons, however, have funneled millions of their charitable dollars to the Clinton Foundation, an organization that does not disclose its donations publicly. The Clinton Foundation did not respond to a request for detailed donations to veterans and military groups.
Last year the Clintons released eight years of tax returns, revealing the couple had earned $139 million in adjusted gross income from 2007 to 2014 and gave almost $15 million to charity in that period, but it is unclear how much of that money went to veterans. The Clinton campaign did not respond to a request for comment.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the Clinton campaign provided them with an email listing “eight donations totaling $105,000 to veterans organizations since 2006.”
“Hillary Clinton has quietly made personal donations in addition to spending her career fighting for veterans through legislation, fundraising and the work of the Clinton Foundation,” spokesman Josh Shwerin said in the email.
Keeping things in perspective, as noted by Breitbart News, the Clintons earned $139 million in adjusted gross income from 2007 to 2014.
