Former US president Bill Clinton is defending donations to his foundation from foreign governments as his wife Hillary considers a 2016 presidential campaign.

In an interview at the Clinton Global Initiative University, Bill Clinton said he believes they have done “a lot more good than harm”.

The former president said his approach has been to disclose everything related to the foundation’s donors and let people make their own judgments.

He noted that one of the contributors was the United Arab Emirates, which he pointed out was helping the US fight the Islamic State terror group.

Hillary Clinton is also speaking at the event at the University of Miami, but she has steered clear of both criticism of her use of a private email account at the State Department and the foundation’s fundraising practices.
