In a settlement, Palm Beach agreed to waive those fines — if Trump’s club made a $100,000 donation to a specific charity for veterans. Instead, Trump sent a check from the Donald J. Trump Foundation, a charity funded almost entirely by other people’s money, according to tax records.

 

Let me get this straight, he settled with the city on a lawsuit over a flagpole being too tall, by making a donation to a veteran's charity.

He made the donation from his charity, and you think that's wrong?

lol, if he made it from another account, you'd probably be whining about him writing the donation off his taxes.

 

Morons.

JUST 5.7 PERCENT OF CLINTON FOUNDATION BUDGET ACTUALLY WENT TO CHARITABLE GRANTS

 

The Clinton Foundation spent a hair under $91.3 million in 2014, the organization’s IRS filings show. But less than $5.2 million of that went to charitable grants.

 

Just 5.7 percent of the Clinton Foundation’s massive 2014 budget actually went to charitable grants, according to the tax-exempt organization’s IRS filings. The rest went to salaries and employee benefits, fundraising and “other expenses.” The Clinton Foundation spent a hair under $91.3 million in 2014, the organization’s IRS filings show. But less than $5.2 million of that went to charitable grants. That number pales in comparison to the $34.8 million the foundation spent on salaries, compensation and employee benefits.

 

Another $50.4 million was marked as “other expenses,” while the remaining almost $851K was marked as “professional fundraising expenses.”

Yes dumb fuck, it is wrong, and you think violating the law for Trump is right.

 

Trump violated laws against “self-dealing” — which prohibit nonprofit leaders from using charity money to benefit themselves or their businesses.

It's illegal to use your charity to donate to a charity? Are you sure?

 

 

 

Washington: Donald Trump spent more than $300,000 from his charitable foundation to settle lawsuits that involved the billionaire's for-profit businesses, according to interviews and a review of legal documents.

Those cases, which together used $US258,000 ($342,000) from Trump's charity, were among four newly documented expenditures in which Trump may have violated laws against "self-dealing" - which prohibit non-profit leaders from using charity money to benefit themselves or their businesses.

In one case, from 2007, Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club faced $US120,000 in unpaid fines from the town of Palm Beach, Florida, resulting from a dispute over the size of a flagpole.

In a settlement, Palm Beach agreed to waive those fines - if Trump's club made a $US100,000 donation to a specific charity for veterans. Instead, Trump sent a check from the Donald J. Trump Foundation, a charity funded almost entirely by other people's money, according to tax records.

In another case, court papers say one of Trump's golf courses in New York agreed to settle a lawsuit by making a donation to the plaintiff's chosen charity. A $US158,000 donation was made by the Trump Foundation, according to tax records.

 

 

 

 

The other expenditures involved smaller amounts. In 2013, Trump used $US5000 from the foundation to buy advertisements touting his chain of hotels in programs for three events organised by a Washington. preservation group. And in 2014, Trump spent $US10,000 of the foundation's money for a portrait of himself bought at a charity fundraiser.

BTW I meant to say self dealing.....not self funding

 

 

from the OP source.....

 

If the Internal Revenue Service were to find that Trump violated self-dealing rules, the agency could require him to pay penalty taxes or to reimburse the foundation for all the money it spent on his behalf. Trump is also facing scrutiny from the New York attorney general’s office, which is examining whether the foundation broke state charity laws.

More broadly, these cases­ also provide new evidence that Trump ran his charity in a way that may have violated U.S. tax law and gone against the moral conventions of philanthropy.

 

 

Looks like a good reason for Trump not releasing his tax returns and this is probably just the tip of the iceberg.......

That is an insult to cockroaches. As bad as Romney was Trump makes Romney and even Cruz look respectable. Then again, worse than Trump are his supporters. They had better choices like Jeb Bush, Lindsey Graham, and John Kasich but they went for the two biggest scumbags - Cruz and Trump and then the picked the worst of the worst. Trump supporter really are deplorable.

It was a court sanction to punish Trump's wrong doing you moron. The money that went into Trump charities came from charitable donations not from Trump. Trump used other people's money same as he did for his scam businesses.

 

You are a fool Fool.

First off FUCK YOU AND DIE LIAR!

 

The donation was in lieu of a fine. Fines are meant to punish wrongdoers like Trump. SUCK A COW DICK LIAR!

 

The money in Trump Charities came from donors and not from Trump and even if it had come from own Trump's pocket which it didn't he would have taken the tax write off and you are a stupid ignorant lying cock sucker.

 

BTW, GOOFBOY, what is your theory for what tRump refuses to release his taxes and refuses to show an IRS letter to support his claim that he is under an audit? I know you won't answer because you are a lying CON cocksucker and your refusal to answer is more proof of that, What a loser you are Goofy.

You lieberals do nothing but lie.

 

Are you feeling guilty because nearly every pedophile is a CONservative? Probably not. You would have to havesome humanity to feel guilt. Even if you are primarily a troll you are still sub-human. Regardless, you will be in a cage soon dumb ass. Should have covered your tracks huh?

Facts roll off cons like water off a duck.

The truth is that since the Muslim migrants have entered Europe, there has been a huge spike in crime. From attacks on gay people to sexual assault, Europe is in a tough spot right now. The homophobic attacks are explained easily: sharia law teaches that homosexuality is a sin punishable by death.
