Donald Trump with one of the more bizarre comments of the evening during the Fox "news" debate. After first trying to defend and twisting himself in knots over his previous support of single-payer, the topic turned to campaign donations and the fact that Trump has given money to both Republicans and Democrats.

Here's how he responded when asked what he got from Hillary Clinton in return: Trump ‘Paid’ Hillary to Be Wedding Guest:

If we are to believe him, Donald Trump paid Hillary Clinton to attend his wedding.

Fox News host Chris Wallace pressed the former reality television star on what kind of goodies he got from the politicians he donated money to.

“What did you get from Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi?” Wallace asked.

“I’ll tell you what, with Hillary Clinton, I said, ‘Be at my wedding,’ and she came to my wedding,” Trump replied. “You know why? She had no choice, because I gave.”

He added that he gave money to the Clinton Global Foundation without understanding how his funds would be used.

“I didn’t know the money would be used on private jets going all over the world,” he said. “It was.”
