Donald Trump Foundation Inquiry By NY Attorney General: Our Original Stories About the Ticket Scalper Donor, Etc


I told you months ago that the Trump Foundation was built on a house of cards. After that came the Washington Post and others. But here are the original stories.

May 2016– Trump Only Gave $21,000 to Veterans Groups

March 14, 2016– Trump slashed the small amount he gave to charities

June 17, 2015– Trump Foundation’s biggest donor is a ticket scalper

Now New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has opened an inquiry into the foundation. But my readers have known for a long time that Donald Trump is not terribly charitable, has given almost nothing to soldiers or vets groups, and has relied on big donations from a ticket scalper. He does not put his own money into the charity.
