Donald Trump has been open about his previous donations to both political parties, including a quarter of a million dollars to the Clinton Foundation before he ran for president.

“I did give to the Clinton Foundation,” the businessman said last month.

“Again, I was a businessman, and it was my obligation to get along with everybody, including the Clintons, including Democrats and liberals and Republicans and conservatives,” he added. “As a businessman, I had an obligation to do that.”

Melania Trump has taken an increased role on her husband’s presidential campaign. 

The ex-model on Wednesday defended her husband’s plan to ban Muslim immigration to the U.S. temporarily and said his remarks about illegal immigrants from Mexico are not disparaging.

“I don’t feel he insulted Mexicans,” she said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “He said illegal immigrants. He didn’t talk about everybody.”
