And boy, did Bill bring the receipts.

Though the former president (and potential future First Husband) didn't mention the election or Trump's criticisms of the Foundation, he did spend the first first few minutes of his opening address at the Initiative, rattling off a stunning list of statistics about the Clinton Global Initiative's impact. 3,600: That's how many public commitments the Initiative's attendees have made on stage over the last 12 years. 435 million: That's how many people those commitments have helped. 52 million: That's how many children have received access to education as a result of those commitments. 114 million: That's how many people can drink clean water because of the Initiative. The list goes on.

One of the Foundation's signature accomplishments, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, has provided low-cost AIDS medication to 11.5 million people since it launched in 2002.

"I believe itís helped change the face of philanthropy," President Clinton said of the Initiative.
