Nigerian Billionaire and top Clinton foundation donor banned from entering the US for terrorism charges

Clinton foundation donor and Nigerian billionaire Gilbert Chagoury has been banned from entering the US. 

He has donated about $1million dollar to the charity but is no longer allowed to enter the US according to dailymail.

His name came up because of an ask Clinton Foundation head Doug Band made of Hillary Clinton's state department where he wanted to put the donor whose  parents were Lebanese, in touch with the American government's top Lebanon person.

Donald Trump used the opportunity to try and show that the Clintons were running a 'pay-for-play' enterprise between the State Department and the family foundation, where Chagoury had been a million dollar donor however his visa problems likely stemmed from his involvement in Lebanon's complicated political system, according to an investigation from the Los Angeles Times,
Chagoury was a backer of Michel Aoun, a Christian politician in the nation.

 But Aoun's party has been part of the same political coalition as Hezbollah, which is considered a terrorist organization by the United States stemming from the double bombings in 1983, killing 63 at the U.S. embassy in Beirut and 241 at a Marine barracks later that year.

Chagoury was 'known to have funded' Aoun and some implicating emails and conversation made ppublic by wikileaks . He was recently questioned by homeland security officials for about 4hours whe n they stopped by his private jet as his name was now on the no fly list.
