    There should be more disclosure of donations to and expenditures by all private foundations. Especially when individuals connected with them run for public office.

    In this case, it appears that neither the Trump nor the Clinton Foundation complied with existing rules.

    But, you never said a damn thing against the Clinton Foundation, did you? You sure as hell propped her up though.
