Washington: Attacking his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton over donations to her family foundation, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has alleged that she received funds from Indian political leaders and institutions to vote for the Indo-US civil nuclear deal.

Released by the Trump campaign in form of a 35-page booklet, none of these allegations are new and have been known in the public domain for past several years.

 

Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, had refuted these allegations several times in the past.

In a statement, the Trump campaign said the information provided in the booklet is in-depth summary of the top 50 facts about Clinton's record that were detailed by Trump in a major speech early this week in New York.

Citing a New York Times report, the Trump campaign alleged that as early as 2008, Indian politician Amar Singh had donated between US $1,000,001 and US $5,000,000 to the Clinton Foundation.

"Singh visited the US in September 2008 to lobby or a deal allowing India to obtain civilian nuclear technology; then-Senator Clinton assured him democrats would not block the deal," the Trump campaign alleged.

 

It said in 2008 the Confederation of Indian Industry gave US $500,000 to US $1 million to the Clinton Foundation.

It also alleged that Indian-American Raj Fernando was appointed to the State Department's International Security Advisory Board by Clinton s chief of staff Cheryl Mills at her "insistence".

Fernando, he alleged, has donated between US $1 million and US $5 million to the Clinton Foundation.

 

Trump alleged Clinton's foreign policy has cost America thousands of lives and trillions of dollars and unleashed ISIS across the world.
