Longtime Clinton ally James Carville said the Clinton Foundation should not have accepted foreign donations Tuesday on MSNBC’s Morning Joe.
Former president Bill Clinton announced last Thursday that the Clinton Foundation would stop accepting foreign donations if Hillary Clinton was elected president.
The Clinton Foundation has come under intense scrutiny after the State Department released emails that raised questions about Clinton giving Clinton Foundation donors improper State Department access while she was Secretary of State.
“What the Clinton Foundation does, it takes money from rich people and gives it to poor people,” he said. “Most people think that’s a pretty good idea.”
Panelist Willie Geist asked Carville if the former Secretary of State should have accepted donations from foreign governments.
“If you ask me as a political adviser, of course. If you ask me as a human being, I’m not sure,” Carville said.
