As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton waived restrictions on selling weapons to governments that "donated" heavily to her family foundation, making it her personal mission to ensure that $29 billion worth of fighter jets were sold to Saudi Arabia -- despite the concerns of foreign allies and others in the U.S. government, including her department's and her own criticisms of Saudi Arabia.
In the years prior to her becoming Secretary of State, Saudi Arabia had given the Clinton Foundation at least $10 million. The maker of the fighter jets, Boeing, gave another $900,000 to the Clinton Foundation while Clinton was Secretary of State and working on the sale.
Those jets have been used by Saudi Arabia, with the assistance of the U.S. military, to kill many civilians in Yemen. The European Parliament has backed a ban on arms sales to Saudi Arabia. The United Nations has condemned Saudi air strikes that have killed civilians.
