Throughout his presidential campaign, Donald Trump was mocked repeatedly for linking Hillary Clinton to the repressive Sultan of Brunei, saying the two were close friends. Though liberals said he was crazy for saying this, a 2012 email released on Thursday by the U.S. State Department shows that he was right all along…
Daily Mail reported that in the email, top Clinton aide Huma Abedin told Hillary that Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, who is worth a reported $20 billion, wanted to see her and husband Bill for an intimate “family style dinner.” Abedin added that Brunei government officials “say [the] sultan sees wjc [William Jefferson Clinton] as part of his family and this is treating you in this ‘informal’ way.”
Two years later, Hollywood liberals were enraged when they learned of the sultan’s embrace of brutal Muslim Sharia law for his nation’s criminal justice system. Sharia law, of course, criminalizes homosexuality and imposes a death penalty on “sodomy.”
Jay Leno led a protest outside the Beverly Hills Hotel, which the sultan owns, saying “evil flourishes when good people do nothing, and that is pretty much what this is. This is not complicated. These are not crazy left-wing wacko people.” Daytime TV host Ellen DeGeneres, businessman Richard Branson, and Vogue editor Anna Wintour boycotted the hotel as well.
Trump first raised this issue back in June of 2015, saying Hillary “accepted $58,000 in jewelry from the government of Brunei when she was Secretary of State – plus millions more for her foundation.”
“The Sultan of Brunei has pushed oppressive Sharia law, including the punishment of death by stoning for being gay,” he said. “The government of Brunei also stands to be one of the biggest beneficiaries of Hillary’s Trans-Pacific Partnership, which she would absolutely approve if given the chance.”
Once again, Trump was right!
