Bill Clinton: Foundation has done nothing wrong; helps poor
04 May 2015, 15:47
Washington — Former US President Bill Clinton says there's nothing "sinister" about getting wealthy people to contribute money toward helping poor people.
The Clinton Foundation has faced persistent questions about its acceptance of donations from foreign countries and its corporate ties. Now that Hillary Rodham Clinton is running for president, the foundation is also under scrutiny for the overlap between long-term political donors and foundation funders.
In an interview on NBC's "Today" show, Bill Clinton says there has been a deliberate effort by political opponents to destroy the foundation. He said: "I don't think I did anything that's against the interests of the United States."
Clinton is touring Africa with his daughter, Chelsea.
