Hillary Clinton Donated Meager $70,000 To Vets Compared To Trump’s Millions – But Hillary Still Attacks Him For It
According to public records, Hillary and Bill Clinton have donated a meager $70,000 to veterans and military groups through their personal Clinton Family Foundation in recent years.
At Trump’s press conference on Tuesday he told reporters to “Find out how much Hillary Clinton’s given to the veterans,” he said. “Nothing.”
Much of what Clinton has raised for charitable dollars is put into the Clinton Family Foundation, an organization that does not detail its donations to the public.
According to Hillary Clinton’s tax return, the Clinton family has earned a gross income of $139 million between 2007 and 2014. Less than $15 million of that gross income went to charitable organizations and it is uncertain how much of that money went to veterans.
This is the list of donations to veterans and military organizations through the Clinton Family Foundations 990 tax forms:
2009: $25,000 to the Friends Of American Lake Veterans Golf Course
2010: $5,000 to the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, $10,000 to Any Soldier, $5,000 to Operation Gratitude
2011: $5,000 to Our Military Kids Inc
2012: $10,000 to Operation Homefront, and $5,000 to Operation Hat Trick
2014: $5,000 to Operation Hat Trick
Following Trump’s press conference at Trump Tower on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton went to CNN for an interview and took a jab at Trump over his $5.6 million contribution to veterans organizations.
“The problem here is the difference between what Donald Trump says and what Donald Trump does,” Clinton said. “It took a reporter to shame him into actually making his contribution and getting the money to veterans.”
During his speech, Trump said he made a personal contribution of $1 million to veterans organizations.
