Clinton Foundation Woes Still Dogging Hillary

by | Apr 2, 2018 | Politics

Hillary Clinton may still be wondering “What Happened?” in the 2016 election when she was shockingly defeated by Donald Trump, but the same issues that dogged her two years ago continue to plague her today.

On back-to-back days last month, LifeZette.com, the news site co-founded by Fox News host Laura Ingraham, ran articles about the current woes of the Clinton Foundation, first regarding “maturing investigations” into charity frauds by the IRS, FBI and multiple foreign governments, then about the foundation filing mandatory annual reports months late and failing to disclose required details about grants and spending.

Stephen E. Strang, author of the best-selling book, God and Donald Trump, says that while Trump was able to capture the evangelical vote because he was on board with matters that were important to them, many faith-based voters just couldn’t get past Hillary Clinton’s seemingly dishonest behaviors and shady dealings.

“Not only were her platform policies anathema to all but a few evangelicals, her history of corruption, the email scandal that erupted over her private server and the ‘pay for play’ favoritism she had manipulated through the Clinton Foundation while she served as secretary of state were enough to turn the stomach of anyone who believed in honesty and transparency in government,” Strang wrote in God and Donald Trump.

Strang continued in the book that Democrats had hoped to win back the House and the Senate as part of Clinton’s inevitable White House win, but, in fact, they managed to lose all three. So no one was really surprised the Democrats reacted to Donald Trump’s victory with alarm.

“Their agenda and their cushy appointed jobs in the government were being threatened for the first time in a decade, or maybe two, and that was enough to make them a bit crazy,” Strang said. “Even more extraordinary was the level of hatred spewing from Clinton’s supporters in every corner of the country, not only in Washington, but also in New York, Hollywood and many other places across the fruited plain.”

Faced by an overwhelmingly negative press, vulgar broadsides by the sitting president and members of Congress, insults by celebrities and stereotyping by the media as a racist and bigot, Donald Trump knew he faced a difficult race, the author added.

“He would need a way to fight back, and he found it with Twitter, as he talked with his 35 million followers on @realDonaldTrump,” Strang said. “Later he would add another 20 million followers on @POTUS, and Twitter would become Donald Trump’s direct link to the American people.”

In God and Donald Trump, Strang gives an inside look at the Donald Trump campaign, election and the presidency thus far, including how he engaged with evangelicals and other faith groups to claim victory.

Strang is an award-winning journalist and successful businessman who began his career as a newspaper reporter at the Orlando Sentinel. He later founded a Christian publishing house and media company while interviewing and writing about nearly every Christian leader in the country over the past four decades.
