Incessant harassment by the Sleazocrats running New York led to the Trump Foundation announcing its plan to dissolve ( in NEW YORK, anyway) in 2016. They are now going through with it.

I'm sure that the Sleazocrats cheering this, will be PICKING UP THIS SLACK...right?

Where Did Trump's Foundation Donate Its Money? IRS Documents Reveal Surprising Answers


The Donald J. Trump Foundation gave away $10.9 million from 2001 to 2014, taking a scattershot approach to philanthropy with donations to more than 400 different charities, according to a Forbes analysis of 14 years of IRS documents. Among the notable recipients: the William J. Clinton Foundation, a state branch of the ACLU and a nonprofit run by the New York Times, which Trump routinely criticizes on Twitter. Only $2.8 million of that money came from Trump himself.

The biggest single beneficiary was the Police Athletic League, a New York City charity that works with local police officers to provide summer camps, universal pre-K programs and after-school activities for children. According to the charity’s website, Trump serves on its board of directors alongside fellow billionaire investor Ron Perelman and New York supermarket magnate John Catsimatidis. It is the only charity that got a donation from the Trump Foundation every single year from 2001-2014, ultimately receiving $832,500, 8% of the foundation's total gifts during the 14-year stretch.

An estimated 36% of the foundation’s money went to roughly 100 organizations promoting healthcare, the Forbes examination revealed. The Trump Foundation gave more than $465,000 to both the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Operation Smile, which offers free surgeries to children born with cleft palates in developing countries. The foundation gave at least $326,000 to New York Presbyterian Hospital and $250,750 to its sister institution, the Hospital for Special Surgery, which is also based in New York City.

Your boy used his non-profit as a slush fund for him and his family, which is highly illegal. The democrats did not do anything, our justice system did. If you hate our laws, try to change them, but you sure as hell can't pretend that the way Trump's foundation was run wasn't highly illegal.

Our laws apply to everyone, even your favorite politician.

MADEUP BULL****.

Let's see the PROOF of that LEFTLIE by the NYC Leftidiots...and while your at it, let me know when SHARPTON is going to jail for tax evasion there....

WTF would a MULTI-BILLIONAIRE need to take money from a foundation that raised an average of $1-3 million a year?

I LISTED THE PROVEN RECIPRIENTS of Trump Foundation money...from the IRS's records.

Please shoe the PROOF of your claims.

Yes, these people apparently really are that stupid and delusional. No respect for our laws, makes me wonder why they even want to live here.

This is why we have courts, so the evidence can be presented, and it was, and Trump lost. Your request that Republicans should be exempt from our laws is duly rejected. Your feelings do not override our laws, show some respect.

Also, if you feel you have a rock solid case against Sharpton, feel free to prove it in court, internet whiner.

And NO EVIDENCE has been presented supporting the LIES of the NYC Sleazocrats.

I, however, HAD NO PROBLEM PROVING THE FOUNDATION'S CHARITIBALE WORKS AROUND NYC, via IRS RECORDS.

Why did a judge allow the NY AG to bring this lawsuit if they did nothing wrong?

Why did Trump agree to shut it down if he did nothing wrong?

Are you aware of what he's being accused of? He settled personal lawsuits using this foundation as a slush fund? He contributed to political campaigns out of this slush fund? He used this slush fund to purchase memorabilia at charity auctions and such rather than use his own money or just donating to a charity directly? Alot of those dollar amounts that you are bragging about aren't "grants" or "donations". He would take money out of the slush fund and spend it on advertisements for Trump Co at a charity event and claim it as a donation. Or he would enter a charity golf tournament with foundation money and consider it a donation. He purchased paintings of himself and sports memorabilia with this slush fund. And I'm sure there are other things. This isn't the purpose of a charitable foundation. You should put the blame on Trump, right where it belongs.

If there were no evidence, Trump Foundation would have no reason to close.

And no, you did not prove anything with IRS records because you did not post any verifiable IRS records. You just posted a link to an article that claims its source as IRS records. Further, even if IRS records reflect this, go ahead and prove that they accurately reflect that actual donations and not just what was REPORTED to IRS by the corrupt foundation.

In any case, I can also post a link to an article and call it "proof". Bottom line, Trump Foundation folded because of its wrongdoing. There they did not do what they were accused of, there would be no need to fold their shady practices.

The suit, filed in June, alleges that Trump and his children violated federal and state charities law with a "persistent" pattern of conduct that included unlawful coordination with the 2016 Trump presidential campaign.

Central to the lawsuit is a nationally televised charity fundraiser for military veterans that Trump held in Des Moines, Iowa, on January 28, 2016, just ahead of the Republican caucus vote there. The foundation received $2.8 million as a result of that event. According to the New York suit, Trump campaign staff then directed the disbursement of those funds for Trump's political benefit.

The lawsuit also alleges that Trump mined his charity for "personal enrichment," including using $100,000 from the nonprofit to settle legal claims against his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida.

These are just few examples of a consistent pattern of misuse of charity money. I am sure you'd be happy to contribute to this charity, but you might as well just write a personal check to Trump - same difference.

I'm sure De Blasio and the Leftidiot prosecutors (etal) will make up the charitable shortfall to the Police League children's charity, the Hospital for Special Surgery, and all the rest, right?

Don't worry. People that actually want to donate to these organizations can still do so, and guess what, much more of their money will make it to the desired destination instead of paying off Trump hookers.

No, but I'm sure they'll make campaign contributions to Republicans.

Surprisingly info

The last donation to the Trump foundation by Trump was $35 000 in 2008

The largest outside donation was done by the McMahon's (WWE fame) around the time Trump appeared on Wrestlemania
