The Clinton Foundation will stop accepting donations from foreign and corporate entities if Hillary Clinton is elected as president.
NBC News reports that the foundation "will only accept contributions from U.S. citizens and independent charities." Additionally, the yearly Clinton Global Initiative meeting will no longer be held following the election no matter the outcome.
Former President Bill Clinton will also stop giving paid speeches if Hillary Clinton wins the election.
Many people on Twitter were just a little bit skeptical of the foundation's promise, via Twitchy:
@AP Her word is worthless. She made this exact same pledge on becoming Secretary of State & then reneged on it.— Dread Pirate Cates (@drawandstrike) August 18, 2016

Better get those donations in now, foreign friends! https://t.co/YmxZp3M4lN— Stephen Gutowski (@StephenGutowski) August 18, 2016

Indeed, the Clinton Foundation did say they wouldn't accept foreign donations or at least slow them down in some instances when Clinton became Secretary of State. But they clearly didn't live up up to that pledge, as Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro has documented.
The Clinton Foundation has come under scrutiny for apparent quid pro quo exchanges through the slush fund amassed by the foundation and the favors given by former Secretary of State Clinton and her cronies. Every stage of Clinton's political career has been mired in corruption, would she finally embrace honest-dealing and transparency if she obtains the presidency? As Bill proved, once a Clinton, always a Clinton, and more power just means more corruption.
