Trump: ‘Hillary Clinton Turned the State Department Into Her Private Hedge Fund’

Tuesday from Trump National Golf Club, in Briarcliff Manor, NY, after several decisive primary wins, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump began his general election pivot by going on the offense against presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, adding that she “turned the State Department into her private hedge fund.”

Trump said, “Hillary Clinton turned the State Department into her private hedge fund. The Russians, the Saudis, the Chinese, all gave money to Bill and Hillary and got favorable treatment in return. It’s a sad day in America when foreign governments with deep pockets have more influence in our own country than our great citizens. I didn’t need to do this. It’s not easy, believe me. I didn’t need to do it, but I felt iI had to give back to our wonderful country, which has been so good to me and to my family.”
