GOP presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump on Monday called on Democrat Party presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton to return the many millions the Clinton Foundation received from Saudi Arabia, in light of Clinton’s claims that she is supportive of women and gays.

Trump posted, “Saudi Arabia and many of the countries that gave vast amounts of money to the Clinton Foundation want women as slaves and to kill gays. Hillary must return all money from such countries!”

He followed up with this post: “Crooked Hillary says we must call on Saudi Arabia and other countries to stop funding hate. I am calling on her to immediately return the $25 million plus she got from them for the Clinton Foundation!”

Clinton responded to the Islamic terror attack in Orlando in a speech on Monday in which she both claimed that it was not a day for politics and slipped in references to her political presidential rival Trump. She said it was past time for the governments of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Kuwait to stop allowing their citizens to fund extremist terrorists and to “stop supporting radical schools and mosques.” She claimed to be an ally of LGBT people.

Sen. Bernie Sanders called out former Secretary of State Clinton in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper:

If you ask me about the Clinton Foundation — do I have a problem when a sitting Secretary of State and a foundation run by her husband collects many millions of dollars from foreign governments, governments which are dictatorships, you don’t have a lot of civil liberties with democratic rights in Saudi Arabia. You don’t have a lot of respect there for divergent opposition points of view, for gay rights, for women rights. Do I have a problem with that? Yeah, I do.

Last November Sen. Rand Paul called out Clinton for saying she supports women’s rights when the Clinton Foundation took $25 million from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. “She has no leg to stand on things. She’s going to defend women’s rights when she’s taken money from some of the worst abusers of women’s rights in the world.”
