  • Trump's foundation is sued by the state of NY

    Color me surprised. The Donald was using his foundation as a personal piggy bank.

    NEW YORK (AP) — A lawsuit filed by New York's attorney general Thursday said President Donald Trump used his charitable foundation to settle personal business disputes and bolster his political image with donations directed by his staff.

    The Donald J. Trump Foundation "was little more than a checkbook for payments from Mr. Trump or his businesses to nonprofits, regardless of their purpose or legality," Democratic Attorney General Barbara Underwood said as she sued to dissolve the foundation and seek $2.8 million in restitution.

    The foundation's mission says its funds are to be used "exclusively for charitable, religious, scientific, literary or educational purposes,"
    What would Trump know about any of those things? Geez ….
