(RoyalPatriot.com )- The Clinton Foundation, which once enjoyed enormous contributions from foreign countries like Saudi Arabia and Qatar, is now reduced to begging for donations on Twitter.
My, how the mighty have fallen.
Last week, Hillary Clinton urged her Twitter followers to consider donating to the Clinton Foundation to support its “life-changing work,” which is only slightly less embarrassing than Hillary sitting on a street corner holding a “powerless and hungry: please give” sign.
Unsurprisingly, Hillary’s tweet was met with mockery and criticism.
But what choice does Hillary have but to beg her Twitter followers for money?
Since her humiliating 2016 defeat to Donald Trump, contributions to the Clinton Foundation have taken a nosedive. But that’s hardly shocking since the Clinton Foundation was never anything but an enormous pay-to-play scheme to curry favor with the woman who was supposed to become the President of the United States. When that failed and Hillary had no influence to sell, the big-money foreign donors found better things to do with their money – like buying Hunter’s paintings.
In 2019, the Foundation brought in 29.6 million. In 2020 that dropped to $16.3 million, or a 45 percent decline.
Meanwhile, when Hillary was running for president, the Clinton Foundation raked in $62.9 million.
From $62.9 million in 2016 to 16.3 million in 2020. That’s a 74 percent drop in just four years.
In 2009, when Barack Obama named Hillary Clinton Secretary of State, the Foundation hauled in $249 million from foreign countries and entities eager to buy access to a senior official in the Obama Administration.
No doubt if Hillary had won in 2016, the Foundation would have been flooded with donations. Alas, that was never to be.
Hillary has no influence in the federal government, nor can she affect foreign policy. So participating in the Clinton Foundation pay-for-play scheme is pointless. As a result, the Clinton Foundation’s expenses have for several years outpaced donations. In 2020, the Foundation operated at a net loss of over $4.3 million.
If Hillary Clinton believes that begging for spare change from her fans on Twitter will fill that kind of deficit, she isn’t nearly as smart as her supporters think she is.
