Bill should not have to step down from Foundation: Hillary
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Tuesday said that her husband Bill Clinton should be able to continue his foundation work until after the November election, a remark slammed by the rival Donald Trump campaign, which alleged that she operates in a permanent ethical blind spot.
Bill, who founded the Clinton Foundation after he stepped down from the US presidency to carry out charity and humanitarian work globally, is the head of the foundation. Of late the Hillary’s political rivals have been alleging the Clinton Foundation of undue influence on the State Department when she served as the Secretary of State in the first term of the Obama Administration. The allegations have been denied by both of them.
