Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump says all the money likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is raising is “blood money.”

“I don’t want to devote the rest of my life to raising money from people,” Mr. Trump said in an interview that aired Wednesday on “CBS This Morning.” “When she raises this money, every time she raises money she’s making deals.”

“They’re saying, ‘Could I be the ambassador to this? Could I do that? Make sure my business is taken care of.’ I mean, give me a break,” he said.

“All of the money she is raising — that’s blood money,” Mr. Trump said. “That’s blood money.”

“Look, she’s getting tremendous amounts of money from Wall Street. She’s going to take care of Wall Street,” he said. “She’s getting tremendous amounts of money from lots of people. She’s going to take care of all those people.”



“She’s going to be owned by Wall Street. She’s going to be owned by the banks. She’s going to be owned by a lot of different groups, or she wouldn’t be raising the money,” Mr. Trump said. “I don’t like doing that.”

“I would rather say it like it is. And like it is, is that I don’t want to spend a lot of money,” he said.

Mrs. Clinton started June with about $42 million in the bank, while Mr. Trump had about $1.3 million on hand.

“That’s from a filing, in all fairness, that only took into account one day,” he said.
