Trump criticized the Clinton Foundation's acceptance of money from countries, such as Saudi Arabia, that discriminate against the LGBT community.

"Here's a woman that takes all of this money from all of these countries, and then she says that she loves women and she's totally with the gays and, you know, whatever group you might talk about; the gays and lesbians," the presumptive Republican presidential nominee said in excerpts of a Fox News interview scheduled to air Tuesday night. 

"They want to kill — they throw them off buildings," he said of some Islamic countries. "They actually throw gays off buildings."

Trump called on Clinton, his Democratic counterpart, to return the money she's taken from these countries, before touting himself as the better candidate.

"I'm much better for women than she is," he said. "I'm much better for the gays."

Trump first made the argument about the LGBT community in a Monday speech responding to the shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando by a man who pledged allegiance to terrorist groups during his attack, the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.
