Uhm, this is awkward!
You may be aware that Trump still has NOT released his tax records, something Hillary Clinton has already done, as he claims he’s undergoing a routine audit and will release the information afterwards.
Part of the reason people are so curious about his return is they want to fact check some of the claims the businessman has made like how he’s said at rallies that he gives “millions” to charities every year. In fact, just last week Donald’s son, Eric Trump, even said that his father gives “millions and millions and millions” to charities including “hundreds of thousands” to the Eric Trump Foundation!
“I’m sure there have been but without going back through 10 years, I wouldn’t remember check for check off the top of my head.”
The letter continued saying:
“We are going to maintain anonymity. Hope you understand.”
Uhhhm, so what about those “hundreds of thousands”?! LOLz!
What’s worse is according David Fahrenthold‘s investigation for the Post, he claims that Trump should have given over $8.5 million away. The BIG problem came when David tried to call over 200 national charities and only found $10,000 in donations from the former Celebrity Apprentice star. If that’s not a red flag, how about the fact that the investigation also showed that old Donald hasn’t given any money himself since 2008!
Of course the GOP candidate’s campaign said that he’s given $102 million in charitable gifts over the last five years, but once again the WaPo didn’t find ANY donations anywhere! That’s when the campaign attempted to cover their tracks by saying that the donations weren’t cash gifts but rather things like “free golfing” and “conservation easements.” SRSLY?!
How can Trump even BEGIN to monetize things like free golfing?! The 69-year-old is either delusional or… nope, just plain old Crazytown Bananapants!
These aren’t the only instances of shady things going on — outside of Trump University of course — as the American Democracy Legal Fund have asked the IRS to look into an instance where Trump’s charitable funds were used to buy a signed football helmet from Tim Tebow. Brad Woodhouse, a rep from the ADLF wrote in a letter saying:
“What’s unambiguous is that Mr. Trump manager and fiduciary of the Foundation’s charitable assets, used Foundation dollars to purchase football memorabilia that he personally coveted,” Brad Woodhouse of the American Democracy Legal Fund, wrote in the letter to the IRS.”
