The Clinton Foundation has recently been at the center of controversy concerning the acceptance of donation from abroad. It received between $10 million and $25 million from Saudi Arabia while the foundation was open to donations from many foreign states.
"I don't think that I did anything that was against the interests of the United States," Clinton said.
Now the foundation will only accept donations from six Western countries, namely Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway and the United Kingdom. However, this move does not mean, according to the former president, that it was a mistake not to stop the other foreign donations before Hillary Clinton ran for president.
The foundation and its founding member Hillary Clinton have recently been criticized for a lack of transparency and for not declaring the receipt of tens of millions of dollars in foreign funds, in light of the launch of her 2016 presidential campaign.
On April 12, Clinton announced her bid to seek the Democratic presidential nomination, simultaneously announcing that she was stepping down from the board of the Clinton Foundation. The charity continues to come in for criticism over accepting foreign donations, a complete list of which has not been published since 2010.
