President Trump

President Donald Trump has agreed to shut down his New York charity amid allegations that he used the foundation for his own financial and personal benefit.

New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood announced her office reached a settlement with President Trump who agreed to shutter his Donald J. Trump Foundation, The Washington Post reports.

Underwood's office filed a lawsuit against the foundation in June citing "persistently illegal conduct."

"The Foundation was little more than a checkbook for payments to not-for-profits from Mr. Trump or the Trump Organization," Underwood wrote in the lawsuit.

Underwood alleged "a shocking pattern of illegality involving the Trump Foundation — including unlawful coordination with the Trump presidential campaign, repeated and willful self-dealing, and much more."

Underwood did not say whether any criminal charges would be pursued against the President or his foundation staffers.

"This is an important victory for the rule of law, making clear that there is one set of rules for everyone," Underwood said in a statement.

A probe into the charity's finances by The Washington Post found improper commingling of charitable funds into his private business. The Post alleged that Trump used the charity's money to pay legal settlements for his private business.

Trump denied that his charity had done anything improper. In late 2016, he said he wanted to close the foundation after he won the election.

In a court filing in New York, Underwood said the remaining $1.75 million in the foundation's bank accounts would be distributed to other charities approved by her office.

Her announcement led to accusations that Underwood allowed Trump to buy his way out of legal consequences.

    Another day another scam.

    In 2016 he said he wanted to close the foundation after he won the election. If his supporters cant see how dishonest and greasy he is. I bet his skin has an oil slick on it. Scam artist of the century!

    Wow! People really do hate this man. I will not let hatred consume me like it has many people on both sides of politics. Neither party is worth anything to be honest.

  • sunni_daze

    He is a whole criminal. And sadly had he not run for president none of this would be happening, you can't run a crime ring and be in the lime light. Choose wisely and he didn't

    I get what you're saying but his foundation was caught red handed, how is that considered hating him?

  • bemetoo

  • WutizstillHERE!

    His hatred for Obama and him embarrassing him out shadowed his reasoning.. all he was focused on was winning to get even..

    This is how they gonna get him. He broke a federal law. I PROMISE this is gonna FINALLY be his downfall. This nonprofit

    "Federal law prohibits charities from participating in political campaigns"

    Not only did his participate it did while HE was running. Welp. Bye.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Neither party is about anything. I agree. But either you are on the right side of the law or you aint. Its not hard. Its pretty cut and dry actually. Laws were broken. I used to work in nonprofits. They will lock your ass UP fooling with funds from a nonprofit. Its FEDERAL corruption. We sent our high ranking Ag Commissioner to GEL in 2004...partly over her dealings with a nonprofit. And she was a Dem.

    He certainly tries to act like he a mob boss. The fucN POTUS calling someone a Rat....it’s disgusting.

  • Scromes1212

    smh 2019 coming and still no Russian collusion lol get over it folks, he will be your president at least until 2020. And no matter how much you hate him he is one of the few recent presidents that actually did the things he said he was going to do while he was campaigning, or at least tried.

  • Phillybruh

    I think people realize he's President until 2020 unless he up and resigns. But you still can't see what the Russians and the Trump campaign did in 2016, I mean its right in front of your face.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Yep...

  • Jethro

    People won't see what they refuse to see.

  • TMW

    ???

  • Scromes1212

    if its that simple then charge someone, right lol I know, I know, just wait Muller has got him right where he wants him smh

  • TMW

    Petulant toddler.

  • Scromes1212

    its funny how two months ago yall argument was the economy was good cause of the "Obama hangover" now its all on Trump lol this sh*t is funny. So Trump can now take credit for the unemployment rate since the Obama hangover is over, right?

  • TMW

    Not until his term ends, but people are beginning to think he will resign. Hopefully his lawyers are telling him NOT to do that, because as long as he is president, they won’t bring any criminal charges. But trust me, the NY indictment is already drafted with a date of January 2, 2020.

  • Phillybruh

    oh nevermind, you see what you want...lol Charge someone. I guess the fool who the judge accused of treason this morning and delayed his sentencing is no one....lol

  • TMW

    I don’t know who y’all is, but yes your president was taking credit for the creation of jobs that had absolutely nothing to do with his administration. He was also taking credit for the stock market gains. BUT he won’t take responsibility now that the market is tanking and GM is eliminating 15000 jobs - and that both of those things are directly related to his trade policies.

    Obama lead through a devastating recession in 2008 which he inherited as a result of the previous administration’s lax lending policies. He worked with lenders and put regulations in place to make sure it never happened again. When you are a leader, you don’t make excuses and you don’t deflect. You fix the issues.

    Instead of trying to work with Mary Barra to stop the auto industry from sliding into the abyss, Trump is trying to bully her. That didn’t work for Carrier either.

  • Scromes1212

    None of his charges are Russian collusion smh judge can say anything he wants, not him or anyone else has been convicted with Russian collusion smh

  • Phillybruh

    Your an idiot, he pleaded to a lessor charge. But everything he gave up was Russia/Trump related.

  • Scromes1212

    So.... is that a yes or a no to my question? You have established its all on Trump now so he gets the credit good or bad right?

  • TMW

    Tell me something good he’s done, and I’ll tell you if I agree. So far you haven’t expounded on a campaign promise that he made and kept.

  • Phillybruh

    He undid Obamacare and I think that was by accident he didn't even mean to do it.

  • TMW

    When he tried to do it, he and the Republicans couldn’t get it done. But a state Supreme Court finding it unconstitutional had absolutely nothing to do with him.

    And if that decision stands and the US Supreme Court agrees, millions will be left without coverage, and those with pre-existing conditions won’t be able to get insurance.

    So yeah, congrats on screwing millions of your constinuents Trump, just because your ego could not tolerate Obama having something named for him. ?

  • Phillybruh

    I think it was more Obama did it then named after him.

  • TMW

    I think it’s a combination. He can unwind a lot of things, but the ACA will always be known as “Obamacare.” It’s scary that a lot of his base agrees with what the ACA provides, but they don’t agree with Obamacare - and don’t realize they are absolutely one in the same. That’s about Obama, not the plan.

  • Scromes1212

    Just banned bump stocks on firearms today. So....

  • TMW

    That wasn’t anything he campaigned on. That was a result of his crazy delusional followers committing atrocities in the name of MAGA.

    Come again.

  • hottlanta

    I already got my Xmas gift when l saw Nancy smack that azz on live tv. He was gonna show how presidental he was. Ana had me dying when she had that popcorn on don lemon.

  • Blue

    He can't go quick enough.

  • Scromes1212

    Cant wait to hear about "everything he gave up" about Russia and Trump lol!!!

  • TransMichelle

    Let's see. in other news:
    "Expert forensic government investigators, gave their shocking testimony before congress based on a nearly two year investigation into the Clinton foundation’s work both nationally and internationally. They were assisted by three other highly trained experts in taxation law and financial forensic investigations. The forensic investigators stressed that they obtained all the documentation on the foundation legally and through Freedom of Information Request Acts from the IRS and other agencies. Clinton Foundation whistleblowers testify "it operated as an unregistered foreign agent." Doyle and Moynihan have amassed 6,000 documents in their nearly two-year investigation through their private firm MDA Analytics LLC. The documents were turned over more than a year and a half ago to the IRS, according to John Solomon, who first published the report last week in The Hill. The criminal and corrupt Clintons are in debt to the tune of $1 billion to the IRS. The scammers are coming out the woodwork like roaches." It's funny how whenever the real criminals get called out on something, they go after The Donald. So if the real criminal had illegal artifacts in their home they would go after The Donald for asking about rare rhino horns!

    And then come to find out:
    Cohen exaggerated his relationship with the The Donald. Like so many others who want the spotlight as Mueller can create any laws he wants as he is lawless. Cohen's relationship did a few things for The Donald but it's not a long history and was hired to help The Donald with some tenants. He did a decent job and so The Donald organization kept him a bit longer. However, he was never The Donald's "fixer" like he tries to claim. Cohen is another useful idiot that Mueller has managed to squeeze every bit of juice out of but still no arrest for The Donald.

    Another thing. Come to find out, special counsel Robert Mueller's office scrubbed all of the data from FBI agent Peter Strzok's iPhone, while his FBI mistress Lisa Page's phone had been scrubbed by a different department, according to a comprehensive report by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG). In case you followers of white libers and Demoncraps don't know the married Strzok and Page were lovers. They were part of the collusion to frame The Donald even before his inauguration. They said "we have to get him out of office." They have the text messages. But Mueller didn't go after them. Mueller is just as corrupt and criminal as the Clinton, Maxine Waters, Pelossi, Schumber, Odumba and the rest. Mueller left Corsi alone because Corsi threatened to sue his azz. Corsi wasn't a coward and wasn't about put up with Mueller's mess. Mueller left Corsi alone. The Donald signed executive order to revitalize urban communities. The Donald still has the goods. The corrupt establishment is getting real desperate.

    Oh yeah, "The DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign funneled cash to ex-British spy Christopher Steele to help them "challenge the validity of the outcome" of the 2016 election in the event Clinton lost, according to a new British court filing.
    Steele, the author of the Democrat-financed anti-Trump dossier alleging Trump campaign collusion with Russia, said in court that he was hired by Democratic law firm Perkins Coie so they would be able to contest the results of the election should Clinton lose."

    I haven't started wrapping presents yet :-)

  • hottlanta

    We got money launders n liars n you still stuck on the word collusion. Just boggles the mind.

  • Scromes1212

    Because that was the premise of the initial investigation smh It was based on lies, period. And it doesn't matter how you feel about Trump, it shouldn't be ok to lose a election and make up false narratives to mislead the American people smh

  • Scromes1212

    So that wasn't a good thing? Can you admit it's a good thing? It doesn't matter what I bring up your going to make it into something bad, like the tax bill. He campaigned on that, right? Getting rid of Obamacare? He campaigned on that. Everything he campaigned on he has done or tried his best to do. He talked about the wall and he has pushed for it since he has been in office. You are like everybody else smh It doesn't matter what he does or says you just don't like him so you will find away to make it into something bad.

  • TMW

    I don’t like him as a person at all. I think he is the devil - and a narcissistic sociopath.

    As President, he has not benefitted this country at all. I’ve lived almost 5 decades and he’s made a lot of bad behavior ok. The civility of this nation has truly deteriorated. There is a lot of division, a lot of hate and a lot of open hostility.

    What does the Texas STATE Supreme Court ruling Obamacare unconstitutional have to do with Trump? If that ruling doesn’t hold up when it gets to the US Supreme Court, it will have no impact on anyone but Texas residents.

    Banning bump stocks is a symbolic gesture at best. The fact that the NRA is not screaming bloody murder over it indicates that it won’t really have any impact at all. How will that keep guns from getting into the wrong hands?

    As far as taxes go, the tax cuts benefit me - I got a really nice refund last year. But it’s not lost on me that the burden of funding the government is now on the people in lesser tax brackets - the ones that can least afford it.

    I think something needs to be done about immigration. I appreciate that he wants to do something about it. I absolutely don’t agree with his methods around it. Feel better? I said something nice LOL.

  • Eileen

    Thank You...I love my President!!

  • Eileen

    Please the economy is back on track because he untied the legislation that was strangling American business. odummer told us to get used to the new normal! meaning I am sending your jobs overseas and bringing in brown folks to take away whatever jobs are left and I only support the homosexuals and the globolist agenda he was horrible!!! We cannot support every reffuge or boat of folks that want to come into this country. if anything happens to America who will help her? but then again odummer said America needed to be humbled all while he and michelle with a small "m" are making a boat load of money! what happened to income equality? this is not a socialist country but odummer was so busy redefining marriage that he forgot aboout that. he was the most immoral President too ever occupy the office! President TRUMP is trying his darndest to turn the ship around and with PRAY and FASTING by CHRISTAINS he is doing a great job. GO TRUMP 2020 its gonna happen so get used to the new normal!

  • hottlanta

    But but but her emails .Ask Cohen karma is a bytch

  • TMW

    Collusion is not a legal issue, actually. Read any of Mueller’s filings and the word “collusion” is not listed anywhere. No one has ever accused Trump of “colluding” with Russia. Trump is the one that started using that word. The purpose of the investigation was “Russia interference in the U.S. elections” and didn’t specify a specific targeted person or group. Mueller simply followed where it lead. The people in Trump’s orbit are being indicated because they perjured themselves about their dealing with Russia and the Russians. No one has been accused of actually working with the Russians to fix the election - that would not be collusion, that would be treason.

  • hottlanta

    U forgot at n t laid off people as soon as they got that wonderful tax break. Ge laying off 1500 folks n the list is long. What happened 2 the great carrier deal. They still laid folks off. Lets discuss thé trillion dollars weekly déficit he created with those wonderful tax breaks

    Are you insane? I think so!! He just signed the farm act, prison reform, gave the Jews back their home (Jerusalem ) untied the insane legislations that was crippling American business that is why the economy is strong! Got rid of Odumner care so you could avoid those high
    a$$ premiums redirected funds back to the HBCs that Odumner took away, and got America back her respect on the global stage! under President Trump America is no longer being pushed around he has kept the muslim extremists in check, the homos are not prancing around in front of our children he is keeping men out of the women's bathroom and now we can say Merry Christmas!
