Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s son Eric Trump questioned Friday how Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton became enormously wealthy running a charity, which has become the focus of the campaign’s allegation of pay-to-play corruption while she was secretary of state.
“The question I always ask is, what product were they selling? If we make a buck, we sold a bottle of wine or an apartment, or we sold a hotel room. What product were they selling to make $150 million,” Mr. Trump said on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.”
Host Ainsley Earhardt suggested: “Favors? The government?”
“Of course,” responded Mr. Trump, who works on the campaign for his billionaire businessman father.
“This is the leadership we have in this country. Somebody sets up a foundation. They pocket hundreds of millions of dollars. They say they came out of the White House ‘dead broke.’ Now they are worth $150 million,” he said.
Mrs. Clinton famously claimed that they were “dead broke” when they left the White House in 2001.
