Several companies and organizations have severed ties with Donald Trump after his controversial comments about Mexican immigrants, but the Clinton Foundation appears to have no plans to return the thousands of dollars the real estate mogul donated to it over the years.

Trump's name can be found on the foundation's website under the list of donors who have given between $100,000 and $250,000, but the site does not say when the money was donated, reports Politico.

However, the foundation signaled that it would not return Trump's money, with foundation Chief Communications Officer Craig Minassian telling Politico in a statement that the charity is "grateful to our more than 300,000 donors from across the political spectrum whose support has allowed us to efficiently and effectively fight HIV/AIDS and childhood obesity, increase opportunity for girls and women, lift people out of poverty, combat climate change and has improved the lives of millions of people all over the world."

Several other companies have dropped Trump, however, including NBC, Serta mattresses, the PGA, NASCAR and Macy's. But the Clinton Foundation appears to be keeping the money, even though Trump has called the Clinton family criminals after reports came out accusing Bill and Hillary Clinton of trading political favors for millions in donations.

"If this was a Republican sitting right there, this would absolutely be considered illegal. … This is about jail time," Trump said of the Clintons on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" back in April.

Trump says his contributions to the foundation are just like money he's given elsewhere, as he have given "donations to hundreds of different groups and hundreds of different foundations," reports The Daily Caller, which listed Trumps donations to the Clinton Foundation as $200,000.

Such money, Trump told The Daily Caller, "is supposed to be spent wisely. In some cases, foundations do not spend it fairly or wisely."

Clinton, in her first national interview on Tuesday, did not talk about Trump's donations to her family's charitable foundations or the thousands of dollars he and his son, Donald Trump Jr., gave her in the mid-2000s for her political campaigns, reports The Daily Caller, but she did talk about his comments concerning Mexicans.

"I’m very disappointed in those comments and I feel very bad and very disappointed with him and with the Republican Party for not responding immediately and saying, 'Enough, stop it,'" Clinton told CNN during the interview. "But you know they are all in the same general area on immigration."

The Clinton Foundation lists net assets of nearly $284 million in its 2013 financial statement, including $66 million in cash.

Many of the foundation's other donations have come under scrutiny in recent months, including millions from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait and United Arab Emirates, all of which have been accused of human-rights violations, especially against women.
