Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump on Wednesday previewed a speech he’ll be making about likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton later in the day, saying she’s a “terrible liar” and calling the Clinton Foundation a “disgusting situation.”

“I mean, she has done a terrible job,” Mr. Trump said on Fox Business Network. “She’s a known liar — you look at what she’s said about email servers, and her landings under fire, if you remember the famous landing under fire.”

That’s a reference to Mrs. Clinton’s recounting how she landed in Bosnia during a trip as first lady “under sniper fire” — a claim she later recanted.

“Under fire [with] young girls handing her flowers,” he said. “I mean, she made it up.”

“She lies. She’s a terrible liar, and she’d be a terrible president,” Mr. Trump said. “It would be more of Barack Obama — probably worse — and she’d be a terrible president.”

He said he would touch on the Clinton Foundation, but that he’s planning on doing something on the foundation later on. Bloomberg reported on Tuesday that the foundation was recently the target of suspected Russian hackers, though foundation officials said they hadn’t been notified of any breach.

“The foundation is really a disgusting situation,” Mr. Trump said. “So many things were done for obvious reasons. You look at countries that had problems, then all of a sudden they don’t have problems and then you see large payments and large amounts of cash going into the foundation, or being paid for speeches.”

“I mean, frankly it’s disgusting. It’s disgusting,” he said. “Plus, they live like kings and queens in the foundation. They travel first-class. … Their transportation needs are very good.”

“Look, the whole thing is a con,” Mr. Trump said, saying author Peter Schweizer did a good job of laying things out in the book “Clinton Cash.”
