Donald Trump as a net worth of nearly $10 billion thanks to his many business deals over the years. But despite living life as public servants, Bill and Hillary Clinton have somehow managed to rack up a jaw-dropping net worth of $150 million. A new documentary, Clinton Cash, reveals just how they did it.
Based on a 2015 book by Peter Schweizer, Clinton Cash, explores how the Clintons climbed from "dead broke" in 2001, to filthy rich today.
The film exposes how the Clintons demand six-figure speaking fees and amass huge sums donated to their foundation. It also suggests that the Clintons "sold out" to questionable characters, including dictators, financial institutions like Goldman Sachs and TD Bank, and titans of industry.
Schweizer believes the Clintons abused their core principles to build their fortune, he's said. One example of this involves TD Bank. From the end of 2008 to mid-2011, the institution paid Bill $1.8 million for ten speeches. TD Bank was also a major investor in the Keystone XL pipeline. Why does this matter? The pipeline needed State Department approval. And with Hillary in the position of Secretary of State, Schweizer claims she used her power to delay the administration's ability to reject the project.
"Cronyism and self-enrichment are a bipartisan affair, and Hillary and Bill Clinton have perfected them on a global scale," Schweizer said of the film.
Clinton Cash is set to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016 and will then be shown in major U.S. cities, including a showing in Philadelphia during the Democratic National Convention in July.
