WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence is doubling down on running mate Donald Trump’s call for Hillary Clinton to shut down her family’s long-time charitable foundation.
Pence said Monday at a manufacturing facility in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, that Clinton must close the Clinton Foundation immediately. Trump issued the same call earlier in the day through social media.
Clinton’s campaign announced recently the foundation will stop accepting foreign donations if she is elected president. Pence says that pledge isn’t enough and the Democratic presidential nominee needs to “come clean” about the foundation.
The Indiana governor has made several stops in Iowa since securing the GOP vice presidential nomination. They include speeches in Sioux City and Council Bluffs and a stop at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines.
