Trump Family Foundation Fraudsters Fined, Get Schooled

Trump Family Foundation Fraudsters Fined, Get Schooled

Donald Trump will pay $2 million in fines for misusing Trump Foundation charity funds to futher his own political ends, pay business debts, and buy a 6-foot-tall portrait of himself for $10,000. New York County Supreme Court Justice Saliann Scarpulla ordered that the fine and the remaining assets of the defunct foundation, $1.7 million, will be disbursed to legitimate charities: the Army Emergency Relief, the Children’s Aid Society, Citymeals-on-Wheels, Give an Hour, Martha’s Table, United Negro College Fund, United Way of National Capital Area, and the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Foundation directors Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, and Ivanka Trump have been sentenced to re-education camp, and will take classes in how honest board members govern a legitimate nonprofit organization. Papa Trump is exempt from education, either because he’s president, too old to learn, or possibly due to bone spurs.
