The leftists continue to say Trump will cause a rise in terrorism, and the LGBT community is worried that their rights will be taken away. All the while, the Clinton foundation has taken funds directly from nations which are against women’s rights and gay rights. In fact, the Clinton foundation has taken money from countries where being gay could mean a death sentence.
To all of you leftists out there, wake up! You should be ecstatic Hillary lost. Trump has saved you from the oppression which would have become law if Hillary and Saudi Arabia had their way. You can bet she would bow down to her Saudi Arabian masters by taking in more migrants and promoting Islam in America. The Saudi goal is Islamic world domination, including in the west (America). What would this mean for you feminists and the homosexuals?
Considering Saudi Arabia is mostly made up of Muslims who adhere to Wahhabism, it would mean women could no longer drive, would be required to be clothed a very specific way, and homosexuals could be killed. Saudi Arabia has one of the most conservative versions of Islam in the world. Why did the Clinton foundation accept money from this nation knowing these facts? How can any leftist continue to believe Hillary has their best interest in mind? She absolutely does not, she has only two things in mind, money and power.
The Clinton foundation accepted money from Saudi Arabia just prior to her becoming Secretary of state. The money was accepted or reported in 2008, she became Secretary of state in 2009. The total was between $10 million and $25 million! She also accepted money from other nations in 2014 who were also against women’s rights and gay rights! How can you leftists still support this monster? If Trump had taken money from any of these nations, no one would hear the end of it.
“The William J. Clinton Foundation was incorporated in 1997. The foundation agreed to disclose its donors when Hillary Clinton became secretary of state in 2009.”
We wondered whether the Clintons’ donor list holds up to Trump’s claim.
But first, it is important to note that political candidates cannot take money from foreign entities.
“The prohibition in the Federal Election Campaign Act is against candidates or political committees soliciting, accepting or receiving contributions from foreign nationals, not only governments,” said Michael Malbin, a political science professor at the University at Albany.
Hillary Clinton spokesman Josh Schwerin also noted that the former first lady played no role in the foundation while she was secretary of state.
“Further, she did not blink before standing up to countries that oppressed their people and denied them of their rights, from LGBT rights to women’s rights,” Schwerin said.
Nonetheless. looking at the Clinton Foundation’s donor list, Saudi Arabia gave between $10 million and $25 million. But the foundation reported the Saudi money in December 2008, and the amount hasn’t changed since. Clinton Foundation spokesman Brian Cookstra pointed out that Saudi Arabia did not give to the foundation while Secretary Clinton was at the State Department.
The foundation has also taken between $1 million and $5 million each from United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Oman. As The Wall Street Journal reported, several of these donations came in 2014, after Clinton’s tenure at the State Department.
We’ve fact-checked a similar claim before when Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said in April 2015 that Clinton took money from the kings of “Saudi Arabia, Morocco and Oman and Yemen.” Every country except Yemen has contributed to the Clinton Foundation, but Preibus’ claim made it seem like Clinton herself took the money. We rated it Half True.
Human Rights Watch tracks how women are treated in each of these countries.
In Saudi Arabia, a woman needs “male guardian” approval on everything from obtaining a passport to seeking higher education. They also have no divorce rights.
The same male approval is needed for marriage in United Arab Emirates, plus laws there also allow a husband to assault his wife and children.
In Qatar, marital rape is permitted. Women need a male guardian to approve a marriage contract, and one law specifies that a wife must obey her husband.
And in Oman, Human Rights Watch notes that while there is a nondiscrimination law, women still face discrimination when it comes to domestic issues such as child custody and divorce.
According to the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association, all sex outside of marriage, including same-sex intercourse, in Saudi Arabia is punishable by death.
For a married man, the penalty is death by stoning. An unmarried man faces 100 blows of a whip.
In Qatar, any sexual act outside of marriage is punishable by death.
The United Arab Emirates also bans sex outside of marriage, and the death penalty could apply to consensual “same-sex relations.”
As for Oman, the country punishes same-sex acts by up to three years in prison.
As for Trump’s claim that these countries are throwing gay people “off of buildings,” he may be referring to the Islamic State. There is evidence that ISIS has engaged in these acts, but in Syria.
Executions in Saudi Arabia specifically have increased recently, but specific convictions, and whether are they related to homosexuality, are hard to measure.”
