Trump: Clinton Foundation Run By "Grifters," "Shut It Down"


Donald Trump talks about the Clinton Foundation on Monday's broadcast of FOX & Friends:

BRIAN KILMEADE: Good morning to you. Let's talk about the -- the Clinton Foundation. Among the people saying it's problematic and shut it down is Huffington Post. You -- you also agree with that -- with that premise.

DONALD TRUMP: Well, number one, they should shut it down. Number two, they should give the money back to a lot of countries that we shouldn't be taking and they shouldn't be taking money from, countries that influence her totaling, and also, countries that discriminate against women and gays and everybody else. I mean, that money should be -- it should be given back. They should not take that money.

AINSLEY EARHARDT: Honestly, do you think that will happen?

TRUMP: It should happen. Whether or not it will -- they're very greedy people, so maybe it won't. But it should happen.

STEVE DOOCY: I see that your campaign just sent out a statement a few minutes ago regarding this. And you write, "It is now clear that Clinton Foundation is the most corrupt enterprise in political history". You know, there are a lot of people who are not up to speed on what the Clinton Foundation's been doing that you feel is illegal.

TRUMP: Well, I think it's -- it's been really well documented in the book and the book has been absolutely approved by so many people. You've had accounting firms going in there, you've had so many people going in. And it's pay for play. I mean, if you look at it's pay for play.

So many things happened, money is paid, and then all of the sudden, lots of good things (inaudible) the money. It's a very, very, very bad situation.

DOOCY: So you say shut it down?

TRUMP: I say shut it down.

DOOCY: It's interesting because the campaign was asked yesterday, hey why don't you just shut it down now, rather than wait until we find out whether or not she's elected president of the Untied States. And the spokesperson couldn't really answer that, yeah I -- I don't know why we don't shut it down and said -- he didn't say that, but clearly that's the message.

TRUMP: Look, these are very greedy people. These are people that have skirted the law for a long time. Hard to believe that, you know, somebody like this has a good chance at -- you know, a fairly good chance of being president.

Although if you look at the most recent polls, I think things are turning. I think they're turning rather rapidly. But it's hard to believe that she could even be running. To be honest with you, with the e-mails and the crimes she committed, she shouldn't even be allowed to run for president.

EARHARDT: Mr. Trump, let's talk about her e-mail scandal because she totally threw Colin Powell under the bus. She was meeting with the FBI and she said that Colin Powell told her to use her personal e-mail server. So she's blaming it all on him. He was in the Hamptons over the weekend and he said that is a total lie. He said she was using that e-mail for one year before he told her that he had been doing the same thing.

TRUMP: Well, look, she's a liar. I mean, she lies. She lied about the e-mail, she lied about Colin Powell. I saw that, he was not happy. And it's -- the whole thing is a scam with them. Everything is a scam. Like grifters.
