The Clinton Foundation is appealing for donations, but a teaser alert Tuesday had some Hillary Clinton critics accusing the still-unannounced presidential candidate of trolling for attention.

The foundation shot out an email blast Tuesday from "Hillary Rodham Clinton" titled "Announcement" – seemingly raising speculation the former secretary of state was officially tossing her hat into the 2016 presidential ring.

Nope.

Instead, the digital 'announcement' was a promise that Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton would triple every $1 donation the Clinton Foundation receives before the end of the year, Yahoo news reports.

"In my family, we're celebrating our first holidays with a beautiful new granddaughter," Clinton wrote. "We're also celebrating the generosity and commitment of our incredible Clinton Foundation family — and that means you."

"As we look ahead to an exciting new year, there's so much more to do together — solving problems and seizing opportunities faster, better, and at lower cost," the former secretary of state continued. "But we can't do it without you. That's why Bill, Chelsea, and I will triple every $1 donated to the Clinton Foundation before the end of the year, up to an additional $100,000."

Many were not amused, and took to Twitter to slam the ruse.
Reuters correspondent Gabriel Debenedetti scolded the maybe-candidate, tweeting it was "not a good feeling: being on vacation an seeing this in the inbox."

Another journalist, Time political writer Zeke Miller, also seemed annoyed, tweeting Clinton "emails her foundation list with 'Announcement' subject line tease… promoting 2-to-1 donation match."

Clinton reportedly has no plans to make an announcement before spring, booking well-paying speaking gigs through March.

According to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released earlier this month, 50 percent of American voters could see themselves supporting Clinton in the 2016 presidential race, but 48 percent could not — making her "the early presidential front-runner – but barely," according to NBC News.
