An American Crossroads web ad claimed, “the Clintons’ foundation took millions from foreign governments” including “up to $5 million” from the United Arab Emirates and “up to $25 million” from Saudi Arabia.
As we noted, it doesn’t violate campaign rules for a nonprofit philanthropy to accept donations from foreign governments. Over the years, the Clinton Foundation has taken millions of dollars from foreign governments. This includes between $1 million and $5 million from the United Arab Emirates and between $10 million and $25 million from Saudi Arabia. At least a portion of those donations came in 2014, after Clinton left the State Department and formally joined the family’s foundation that had previously been in her husband’s name alone.
We rate the statement True.
