Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump called for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to shut down the controversial Clinton Foundation in an official statement on Facebook Monday.
“Hillary Clinton is the defender of the corrupt and rigged status quo. The Clintons have spent decades as insiders lining their own pockets and taking care of donors instead of the American people. It is now clear that the Clinton Foundation is the most corrupt enterprise in political history. What they were doing during Crooked Hillary’s time as Secretary of State was wrong then, and it is wrong now. It must be shut down immediately,” the statement said.
The Clinton Foundation announced it would no longer accept foreign donations, but only after Clinton won the general election in November.
“The same Saudi Arabia donated to Bush 41’s Foundation. Yet Bush 43 went on to be President without such q’s asked,” Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon tweeted Sunday.

During his interview with “Fox & Friends” Monday, Trump said Clinton took money from “a lot of countries that we shouldn’t be taking and they shouldn’t be taking money from.”
“Countries that influenced her totally and also countries that discriminate against women and gays and everybody else. I mean, that money — it should be given back. They should not take that money,” Trump told Fox.
Trump went on to say that he thought the Clintons might not follow his advice, calling the Clintons, “greedy people.”
