    I don't know much about this but it sure looks about as low as my credit score.

    Here’s a wild fact about business credit that you may not know: Suppliers, vendors, and even business partners can look up your business’s credit score, anytime they want, without notifying you and without your permission.

    So we looked up the business credit scores of Donald Trump’s holding company, The Trump Organization, Inc., and The Clinton Foundation. Because Clinton’s is a foundation, it works a little differently, but we’ve included its score, too.

    What Is a Business Credit Score?
    Similar to personal credit, business credit scores and reports offer one way to determine the credibility of a company by looking into how it has handled debts and obligations in the past.

    Business credit reporting agencies collect information on a business when that business utilizes credit. This could mean the use of business credit cards, repaying equipment leases or a business loan, or working with creditors that report business activity to credit reporting agencies.

    Lenders, vendors, and suppliers may look up a business’s credit score to evaluate it for things like financing or trade credit. The U.S. government can review business credit when a company applies for a large contract. Even potential business partners may look into a company’s reports before deciding to do business with it.

    So even if you’re not running for president, it’s important to keep a close eye on your business’s credit scores. (You can instantly check your business credit summary report for free here.)

    Hillary has never ran a business (much less many) so hers must be, what, 0?

    This is getting silly.


    (Okay, being on a company's board, does that count?)

    Hillary isn't advertising her business acumen as her greatest asset for the presidency, either.

    Nope, I had not read that article. There are better things to read and for better reasons.

    Hillary is not running based on her business acumen. Trump on the other hand is.....why is pointing out facts that undermine his whole business acumen argument silly?

    Only a matter of time. You come to Hillary's defense. Next thing you know, you'll be voting for her.

    "Because Clinton’s is a foundation, it works a little differently..."

    Gee article writer ... thanks for taking the time to NOT explain how it works differently (I was curious).

    @Bold = the difference...

    On that he gets 100 out of 100. A perfect (albeit bad) score.
