32. WHY do foreign governments WANT to give money to the Clinton Foundation?

 

I've heard now about contributions from Canada and Algeria.

How many other foreign charities receive money from these governments? Why the Clinton Foundation?

Is it really charitable to take money from the government of Algeria? What can the Clinton Foundation do that's preferable to Algeria spending that money on the needs of its own citizens?

I'm a cynic regarding the Clinton Foundation, in some pretty fundamental ways. Nothing this foundation does as charity can balance out the damage done to basic economic fairness and justice under the Clinton Administration, such as the repeal of Glass-Steagall and NAFTA. (I feel the same about the Gates Foundation not making up for the harm Microsoft does hiring prisoners and temp workers without benefits, and some other foundations, too)

This foundation seems to create a lot of baggage the Democrats don't need in their next presidential candidate.
