Court fines Trump $2 million for charity foundation misuse

The US president diverted funds donated by veterans to his personal charity to support his 2016 election campaign. He used the money, among other things, to pay for a 1.8-meter-high portrait of himself.

US President Donald Trump was ordered to pay $2 million (€1.8 million) to several charities after he misused his own charity foundation to further business and political interests.

Trump used money donated by veterans to the now-dissolved Donald J. Trump Foundation to further his 2016 election campaign, found the state Supreme Court in Manhattan, on Thursday.

During the run-up to the 2016 Iowa caucuses, Trump allowed his presidential campaign staff to coordinate with his charity in holding a fundraiser for veterans.

He used $10,000 of the money raised to pay for a 1.8-meter-tall painting of himself, among other things.

The ruling came at the end of a 21-month probe by the New York attorney general’s office.

Trump’s children must attend charity training course

In addition to the fine, three of Trump’s children — Donald Jr., Eric and Ivanka — were ordered to attend mandatory training on the duties of charity officials.

Trump will also be restricted on any further charitable activities.

The $2 million fine will be paid to eight different charities, including Citymeals on Wheels, the United Negro College Fund and the US Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Where is the outrage from the flag-waving, military-loving right wing over this?? He diverted funds donated by veterans! Can you imagine if Obama did this and used some of the funds to pay for a 1.8-meter-high portrait of himself? Yet Trump can get away with this, PLUS feud with a Gold Star family, PLUS insult veteran John McCain for being captured, PLUS sit and joke with Sean Hannity during a somber military flag ceremony, PLUS dodge the draft himself. And yet HE is regarded as patriotic and pro-veteran? WTF??? Never has there been a more clear disconnect between reality and the perception of Trump by many of the pro-military flag-wavers on the right.

It all collapses into the amorphous liberal conspiracy. Any friction experienced by the chosen one is a calculated invention to prevent American greatness.

Going to his next rally?  Buy your T-shirt here:  https://www.amazon.com/GUNS-TRUMP-SHIRT-FED-UP-AFRAID/dp/B07KWT6PZW

GOD, GUNS & TRUMP  Maybe the ushers will give you a seat behind the podium.  (hint:  Wear the shirt with slogan in front and you might get a seat next to a grinning child waving a sign that says, NINOS SEPARADOS DE NUS PADRES POR TRUMP!

Remember the brouhaha that ensued when Obama said:

“They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

He was telling the truth, which is what got them all so upset.
