Clinton Defends Work of Family Foundation



    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaks during a campaign event at Truckee Meadows Community College, in Reno, Nev., on Aug. 25, 2016.

    Hillary Clinton is defending the work of her family foundation, saying the organization needs more time to ensure the continuity of their programs. 

    If elected, Clinton said she'll take additional steps to make sure there are no conflicts of interest between her administration and the global charitable network founded by her husband. 

    Winding down the programs and finding partners, she said, takes time. 

    "We're going to make sure we don't undermine the excellence and the results," she said in an interview with MSNBC's "Morning Joe.". 

    Former President Bill Clinton announced last week that if Hillary Clinton is elected president, the Clinton Foundation would no longer accept foreign and corporate donations, he would step down from its board and he no longer would raise money for the organization.
