In September 2016, the Trump campaign
used the phrase to criticise Hillary Clinton
and the Clinton Foundation
, a humanitarian aid non-profit; for several events that took place, including a uranium deal approved by the US State Department under Clinton after her charitable foundation received large donations from people with stakes in the deal; Clinton's relationship with Irish telecom billionaire Denis O'Brien; and a 2009 deal over the disclosing of the identities of American account-holders, that the State Department concluded with the Swiss bank UBS
, a Clinton Foundation donor.
In February 2017, Carl Bernstein
, who with Woodward exposed the Watergate scandal, used the phrase to encourage reporters to discover President Trump
's potential conflicts of interest.
The Trump Foundation
was later found guilty of illegal campaign contributions and other financial crimes. In November 2019, Trump was ordered to pay a $2 million settlement for misusing the foundation for his business and political purposes.
