Trump Charity Basically Trump’s Bank Account


PROSECUTORS IN NEW YORK ARE
GOING AFTER DONALD TRUMP, HIS THREE ELDEST CHILDREN, AND THE
CHARITABLE FOUNDATION THAT HAS BEEN RUNNING UNDER HIS NAME, THE
DONALD J. TRUMP FOUNDATION. NOW, THIS LAWSUIT WAS BROUGHT FORTH
BY THE ATTORNEY GENERAL IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK, NEW YORK
ATTORNEY GENERAL BARBARA UNDERWOOD –>>>>SO WHAT HAS THIS FOUNDATION
DONE SPECIFICALLY THAT HAS BROKEN RULES, BROKEN LAWS? WELL,
ACCORDING TO A STATEMENT FROM THE NEW YORK ATTORNEY GENERAL –>>>>AND THERE IS ALREADY PROOF OF
THIS HAPPENING, WE HAVE SEEN SOME OF THE PROOF AND I WILL
SHOW IT TO YOU IN JUST A SECOND, THE LAWSUIT ALSO SAYS –>>>>ESSENTIALLY HE WAS USING
MONEY THAT WAS RAISED BY THIS FOUNDATION FOR HIS OWN
ENRICHMENT, FOR HIS OWN CAMPAIGN, HIS OWN POLITICAL
CAMPAIGN.>>NO, NOT DONALD TRUMP! YET
ANOTHER SCAM THAT HE HAS RUN IN A LIFE OF CRIMINALITY. SO THE
OFFENSES RANGE FROM SOME THAT ARE IN THE GRAY ZONE, OR AT
LEAST REPUBLICANS CAN ARGUE THAT THEY ARE, TO CRYSTAL-CLEAR. IF
YOU GUYS HAD ANY VIOLATION LIKE THIS WHERE YOU USED CHARITY AS A
SCAM TO ENRICH YOURSELF YOU WOULD GO TO PRISON.>>RIGHT AWAY.>>AND THEY WOULD LAY THE HAMMER
ON YOU, AND YOU WOULD BE — LOOK, THEY WOULD HAVE NO MERCY
AT ALL. IF YOU SET UP A FAKE CHARITY AND FUNNELED MONEY TO
YOURSELF, YOU WOULD BE — I DON’T KNOW IF IT IS DECADES BUT
YOU WOULD BE GOING AWAY FOR A LONG TIME. BUT SINCE IT’S TRUMP
WE ALL HAVE TO DO KID GLOVES. IT’S THE PRESIDENT, WE CAN’T
ACCUSE HIM OF TOO MANY THINGS AT ONCE BECAUSE HE’S BROKEN SO MANY
LAWS, BUT WHEN WE BRING IT UP HE GOES FAKE NEWS, BIAS, WE WILL
GET TO HIS SORRY-ASS EXCUSES IN A MINUTE BUT LET’S GET TO THE
DETAILS AND WHAT HE DID.>>WHEN IT COMES TO UTILIZING THE
MONEY TO CHARITY RAISED FOR HIS OWN CAMPAIGN THERE ARE SPECIFIC
NUMBERS IN THE SUIT –>>>>YOU’RE NOT
SUPPOSED TO DO THAT, THAT IS ILLEGAL. SO –>>>>THAT WAS A BIG STORY AT THE
TIME, IT WAS A BIT OF A POLITICAL STUNT, AND THEN THERE
WERE REPORTS THAT HE HADN’T EVEN GIVEN THE MONEY RAISED TO THE
VETERANS, IT WAS ONLY AFTER HE GOT SCRUTINIZED IN THE MEDIA
THAT THEY CLAIM THEY GAVE SOME OF THE MONEY TO THE
VETERANS.>>HE’S SUCH A BAD GUY. REMEMBER
THIS WAS THE DEBATE HE DIDN’T WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN BECAUSE
HE WAS SCARED TO GO INTO THAT, HE LIKED THE OTHER DEBATES BUT
THIS ONE HE WAS AFRAID OF THE QUESTIONS HE WOULD GET, SO HE
RAN AND HE DID THIS PUBLICITY STUNT FOR HIS CAMPAIGN CLEARLY
TO RAISE MONEY FOR VETERANS. LOOK, THE PART WHERE HE DIDN’T
GIVE IT TO THE VETERANS UNTIL HE WAS EMBARRASSED MONTHS LATER —
THEY ARE LIKE, HEY, YOU IDIOT, YOU ARE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT,
THIS ISN’T LIKE WHEN YOU USED TO RUN YOUR CHARITY IN THE PAST AND
NO ONE PAID ATTENTION AND YOU ROBBED FROM IT, WE ARE PAYING
ATTENTION, YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO GIVE THE MONEY TO THE VETERANS
— THAT PART IS NOT THE ISSUE, HE’S JUST A BAD GUY FOR DOING
THAT. BUT YOU COULD SAY HE MEANT TO GIVE IT UNTIL THE WASHINGTON
POST WROTE A STORY ABOUT IT, THE DAY AFTER THEY WROTE THE STORY,
HE WAS GOING TO GIVE IT — WHATEVER, YOU ARE A MAGA DUDE, I
CAN’T TALK TO YOU, YOU DON’T LISTEN TO FACTS ANYWAY. BUT FOR
THE PURPOSES OF THIS STORY THAT’S NOT THE RELEVANT PART,
THE RELEVANT PART IS HE WAS CAMPAIGNING, THIS IS A GIANT
P.R. EVENT FOR HIS CAMPAIGN, THIS IS A GIANT IN-KIND
CONTRIBUTION FOR HIS CAMPAIGN, WHICH BY THE WAY YOU CAN’T DO. BUT THAT IS NOT THE MOST CLEAR CASE, WE HAVE A CRYSTAL-CLEAR
CASE IN A SECOND.>>AND IT ISN’T RELATED TO HIS
PRESIDENTIAL BID, IT HAPPENED WAY BEFORE.>>THE SUPER CLEAR ONE I SHOULD
SAY.>>IT’S CLEAR BECAUSE WE HAVE NOW
ALREADY SEEN THE EVIDENCE –>>>>AND THE EVIDENCE HAS ALREADY
BEEN PROVIDED, IT IS A NOTE THAT HAS BEEN SIGNED BY DONALD J.
TRUMP ORDERING THAT $100,000 TO BE USED FOR THE SETTLEMENT.>>LOOK, THE IN-KIND CONTRIBUTION
IN THE CASE OF THE CAMPAIGN, THE ONE WITH THE VETERANS WE JUST
TALKED ABOUT, THE CAMPAIGN CLEARLY COORDINATED IT, CORY
LEWANDOWSKI WHO WAS THE CAMPAIGN CHAIRMAN AT THE TIME GAVE ALL
THE INSTRUCTIONS, TOTALLY NOT ACCEPTABLE. THIS ONE, NO ITS,
AND, OR BUTS. YOU CAN’T SET UP A CHARITY TO PAY YOUR LEGAL BILLS
FOR MAR-A-LAGO. IF YOU DID THAT YOU WOULD BE IN PRISON, THERE IS
NO QUESTION ABOUT IT. SO IS THE PRESIDENT ABOVE THE LAW OR IS HE
NOT?>>HE IS, THE WAY THAT THINGS
ARE LOOKING, THE WAY THINGS HAVE GONE THROUGHOUT HIS TERM SO FAR,
HE SEEMS TO BE ABOVE THE LAW. HE SAYS WHATEVER HE WANTS TO SAY ON
TWITTER, HE IS FACING MULTIPLE INVESTIGATIONS, WHO KNOWS, MAYBE
THESE INVESTIGATIONS, MAYBE THIS PARTICULAR COMPLAINT, WILL
MATERIALIZE INTO SOME SORT OF CONSEQUENCE, BUT JUST RIGHT
BEFORE HE GOT ELECTED HE HAD TO PAY A $25 MILLION SETTLEMENT IN
RESPONSE TO TRUMP UNIVERSITY WHERE HE DEFRAUDED STUDENTS. I
MEAN, HE HAS BEEN A SHADY GUY FROM THE BEGINNING BUT NO ONE
WHO SUPPORTS HIM SEEMS TO CARE ABOUT THAT.>>THAT’S OKAY, WE HAVE TO
ENFORCE THE LAWS, OTHERWISE HE CAN DO ANYTHING HE WANTS TO AND
WE DON’T HAVE A DEMOCRACY ANYMORE. I’M A MEMBER COVERING
THIS STORY DURING THE CAMPAIGN AND I WAS ASKING, THAT’S A CLEAR
VIOLATION, EVEN WITHOUT THE NOTE, WE KNOW FOR SURE THAT THE
CHARITY TOOK THE $100,000 AND PAID OFF TRUMP’S LEGAL BILL ON A
PRIVATE ESTATE HE HAS, RIGHT? ON A PROPERTY HE OWNS. I’M LIKE,
WHY ISN’T ANYONE DOING ANY THING ABOUT THIS? TODAY SOMEONE IS,
THE NEW YORK ATTORNEY GENERAL, WONDERFUL, FINALLY THEY GOT
AROUND TO IT, DURING THE ELECTION EVERYONE WAS TALKING
ABOUT SHOULD WE PROSECUTE HILLARY CLINTON, MEANWHILE YOU
HAD A LIFELONG CRIMINAL RUNNING AGAINST HER AND NOT A WORD
DURING THE ELECTION, BUT FINE, AT LEAST THEY ARE ACTING NOW.
AND LET THE MAGA GUYS CRY, OUR LAWS SHOULD NOT BE DEPENDENT ON
HOW MUCH ALT-RIGHT TROLLS CRY ON TWITTER. LET’S ENFORCE THE LAWS. NOW LET’S GET TO HIS EXCUSE THAT I PROMISED YOU, I’LL REDO THIS,
THIS IS HIS TWEET. AS USUAL IN HIS OWN DEFENSE HE BOTCHES IT
WAY WORSE. THIS IS HIS TWEET, HE SAYS –>>>>NOW, LATER HE ACCUSES
SCHNEIDERMAN OF RUNNING HILLARY CLINTON’S CAMPAIGN IN NEW YORK. NOT REMOTELY TRUE, YET ANOTHER LIE, SCHNEIDERMAN IS OUT OF
OFFICE, HE’S NOT THE ONE DOING THIS, IN FACT SCHNEIDERMAN TOOK
TOO LONG AND SHOULD HAVE DONE THIS A LONG TIME AGO AND HE
DIDN’T, HIS REPLACEMENT HAS BROUGHT THIS CASE, AND FOR NOW
IT’S A CIVIL SUIT, ALTHOUGH AGAIN IF YOU DID IT IT WOULD BE
CRIMINAL IN A SECOND, BUT THE PART THAT TO ME WAS THE MOST
INDICATIVE IS THIS CHARITY GAVE MORE THAN IT TOOK IN. YEAH. IT’S
A CHARITY, THAT’S WHAT IT’S SUPPOSED TO DO. BUT HE TOOK IN
18 MILLION FROM OTHER PEOPLE AND THEN GAVE IT IN CHARITY
SOMETIMES IN HIS NAME, BECAUSE HE’S A SCAM ARTIST. HE DIDN’T
GIVE CREDIT TO THE PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY GAVE THE MONEY. DONALD
J. TRUMP. AND SOMETIMES HE WOULD TAKE THEIR MONEY AND STEAL IT
AND PAY THEIR LEGAL BILLS WITH IT. HE GOES WE TOOK IN 18.8 BUT
GIVE OUT 19 — YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO PUT THE WHOLE DAMN THING IN. YOU WANT TO TAKE MONEY FROM OTHER PEOPLE LIKE THE CLINTONS
THAT, THAT’S ANOTHER SHADY FOUNDATION IF YOU ASK ME, NOT
ANYWHERE NEAR THE OBVIOUS CRIMINALITY OF THIS BUT IT HAD
ITS OWN ISSUES, YOU TAKE THE MONEY IN, YOU GIVE IT OUT,
THAT’S CALLED A CHARITY. THAT HE IS LIKE, I DIDN’T MAKE ENOUGH
PROFIT OFF OF THE CHARITY, I FUNNELED THE MONEY TO MY OWN
INTERESTS. THERE ARE SO MANY CORRUPT THINGS HE DID WITH THE
CHARITY, HE BOUGHT A PORTRAIT OF HIMSELF WITH THE CHARITY’S
MONEY. WOW, THANK YOU, THAT’S LIKE CURING CANCER, RIGHT? HE
BOUGHT A GIANT PORTRAIT OF HIMSELF AND THEN PUT IT UP IN
ONE OF HIS PROPERTIES. HE’S SUCH A GROSS GUY.>>HE REALLY IS, AND JUST TO GO
BACK TO HIS TWEET WHICH WAS PATHETIC, HE CLAIMS HE WON’T
SETTLE THIS CASE. HE WILL, BECAUSE HE SAID THE SAME THING
ABOUT THE TRUMP UNIVERSITY CASE AND HE SETTLED IT TO THE TUNE OF
$25 MILLION. HE DEFRAUDS PEOPLE, HE STEALS THEIR MONEY TO
USE IT FOR HIS OWN PURPOSES, AND HE’S BOASTFUL ABOUT THE GREAT
WORK HE’S DONE. AND IT DOESN’T MATTER IF HE’S TELLING THE TRUTH
OR NOT BECAUSE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE MAYBE ON THE FENCE AND THE
PEOPLE WHO ALREADY SUPPORT HIM, THEY WON’T FACT CHECK THAT, THEY
WILL LOOK AT THOSE NUMBERS AND GO WOW, THE DONALD J. TRUMP
FOUNDATION GAVE OUT A LOT OF MONEY. THAT’S ALL THAT MATTERS,
NO ONE WILL DO THE HEAVY LIFTING OR THE DIGGING TO FIGURE OUT
WHAT THE REALITY OF THE SITUATION IS. THAT’S WHY HE IS
SO SUCCESSFUL IN MESSAGING, HE LIES ABOUT EVERYTHING ON TWITTER
AND IT WORKS.>>WELL, IT’S THE JOB OF THE
PRESS TO ACTUALLY FERRET OUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIES AND
TRUTH, IT’S NOT THEIR JOB TO GO TRUMP SAYS THIS AND THE ATTORNEY
GENERAL SAYS THAT, I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE TRUTH IS. WELL THEN
QUIT BEING A REPORTER, OR PERTAINING TO, GO BE A BARISTA
OR SOMETHING.>>THERE ARE NEWS OUTLETS THAT FACT CHECK
HIM ON HIS TWEETS, BUT HE’S DONE A GOOD JOB OF DESTROYING
THE CREDIBILITY OF THE MEDIA. HE LIES AND SIMULTANEOUSLY
DESTROYS THE CREDIBILITY OF NEWS ORGANIZATIONS THAT FACT
CHECK HIM AND CRITICIZE HIM.>>I DON’T CARE WHAT MAGA THINKS. IF YOU BROKE THE LAW, THERE SHOULD BE A CRIMINAL OFFENSE FOR
STEALING MONEY FROM A CHARITY, USING IT FOR YOUR OWN PURPOSES. THAT IS A CRIMINAL OFFENSE, LOCK HIM UP. WE NEED TO BE A COUNTRY
OF LAWS AND THIS GUY DOESN’T BELIEVE IN THE RULE OF LAW, HE
IS TOO BUSY COMPLEMENT IN DICTATORS LIKE KIM JONG-UN AND
PUTIN AND NOW THE LIFELONG PRESIDENT OF CHINA, HE’S LIKE
THAT’S GREAT, THAT’S FANTASTIC — THAT’S NOT FANTASTIC, YOU
IDIOT, THAT’S A DICTATOR YOU ARE COMPLEMENTING. BUT HE LIKES IT,
THAT’S THE SYSTEM HE BELIEVES IN.>>EXACTLY.>>HE DOESN’T BELIEVE IN
DEMOCRACY, LOCK HIM UP.

  • Yea, I like the Clinton Foundation model of extortion better! Hillary to donors: "Give me money and if I'm elected maybe I'll call you back for more money!!" Cenk: Go to Venezuela where you'll be much happier.

  • People say he wants to be a dictator, he already is a dictator cause the law is not doing anything to him.

  • All you tyt fans are idiots , this bullshit will go nowhere just like all the other shit you idiots get excited about

  • I'm gonna say it again. TYT has been WAY too nice to Trump lately. This is a nice change of pace. I feel like most of their stories have been feeling the trolls and being nicer to him to soothe them.

  • Hmm, I read that the state AG can only charge them with civil crimes. She referred this to the IRS and FEC β€” They can bring criminal charges for tax and election fraud, respectively. Is this not true?

  • Okay Trump supporters who often label me a 'libtard', or something worse, whenever I criticize their hero for the shitty things he's doing now while in office, justify this!
    And please, don't use your usual tactic of bringing up Hillary or Obama. Hillary is a retired granny now and Obama isn't the president any more. They're both irreverent as far as running the country now, so unless they did something as bad as Trump, don't bring it up!
    Trump is the one who is running the country and as an American citizen, I feel that he's accountable to me, especially since I don't vote for him.
    And his fraudulent university was the main reason why I didn't vote for him, so finding out that he used his own charity as a personal slush fund isn't surprising.
    What is surprising is how many suckers were fooled by this clown into voting for him…

  • This is why Trump got rid of Preet Bahara and he probably had someone dug up dirt on Underwood's former boss.

  • THis is ridiculous! If I stole even a hundred grand – I would be serving time in prison! Why is this a Civil case? It is a criminal action!

  • Ever wonder why drumpf has gotten away with breaking the law all his life ? Because he really does know people ! And he's been working for them for a very long time. he's owned by israel ! Just ask guili baby.

  • The most disgusting and sickening thing about this is that some trumptards dont care about this and still believe he even deserves a Nobel Prize. What a joke!

  • Conservatives don't care about justice, they are so nationalist they are turning fascist, they only care about winning at all costs, you are in their way and they will crush you by all means if you allow them to.

  • trump is a gotdamn scumbag ,crook, slimeball and criminal and lets not forget Hillary Clinton or the foundation has not been charged with anything

  • Nice dress, Ana. Goes well with your Apple Watch made at Foxconn. Is what Trump is doing worse than public schools advocating more funding "for the kids" but then using the money to bail out broke teachers' pension funds? CalSTRS has a $100 billion unfunded pension liability.

  • Cenk, lock up people who steal money from charities? What about Mr. Wood, who stole money from fund raising for the Veterans Stand with Standing Rock?

  • This is simply more of the typical behavior of right-wingers. From Gingrich to right-wing religious figures to Hannity to the RNC, they all do the same sh*t and have been for decades. Right-wingers are easy marks.

  • This man is a total fraud. It blows my mind that conservatives are refusing to see the obvious and instead they praise him like if he was the reincarnation of Jesus.

  • What’s new trump is can artist he told you he is greedy so Americans are deaf amazing how Americans are dumb

  • the president is above the law, as far as I know, as long he is president. its the same in every country. that is why u should have a president and a prime. the president has only one power, to impeach the whole government if needed and u get a new election. the prime and a majority of parliament can impeach the president. thats an easy safety process most democratic countries have. and of course u have a fixed budget and time for electioneering

  • Charities are not actually supposed to give out more than they bring in. They still have to pay employees, rent, bills, etc. Wrong again Cenk!

  • I don't know what pisses me off more with stories like this, that he's doing these crimes while being the President and nobody seems to want to touch him, or that he's been doing these crimes for his entire f-ing adult life and everybody just turned a blind eye. And people wonder why so many are disillusioned with the criminal justice system, when clearly 'justice' has become a euphemism for 'suppression'.

  • He needs and will go the way of Mussolini, throat cut and hung from a lamp post, along with his racist buddy Gollum sessions.

  • Trump abusing funds in his Foundation for self-enrichment? Can the FBI or DOJ somehow be blamed for this?

  • That clown in chief is truly a scam artist. And the republicans and democrats are letting him get away with this corrupt administration Why isn't msnbc and CNN running this story all day long.

  • Question is: Is this civil or criminal, and is it state or federal jurisdiction? At this point, I really am skeptical of anything federal going anywhere at all, including the Mueller investigation. Even if crazy amounts of evidence comes out, doubt he'll be impeached. Even if (miraculously) he is, who doesn't think Pence will pardon him?

  • What America voted for is what America gets, a complete fraud. A man who scams kids.will scam anyone or anything.

  • Where is the outrage from everyone that "chanted lock her up"? Or do they don't really care about the crime just who to blame? Hypocrites.

  • Like father like son. Just like his dad Freddy, who stole the equivalent of $36,000,000 in today's money from the WWII war Vets housing. President Eisenhower was outraged and had him investigated. Thus Trump's hatred of the justice dept.

  • Politicians lie, it's what they do. The fourth estate is supposed to hold their feet to the fire, and force the justice department to do their job; even when it's against the people who control them; (if)/when they fail, we all suffer the consequences.

    "When and if fascism comes to America, it will not be labeled "made in Germany"; it will not be marked with a swastika; it will not even be called fascism; it will be called, of course, "Americanism."
    Halford E. Luccock

  • BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH HAHAHAHAHAHAπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • He skimmed 7 bucks for Barron to pay his boy scouts membership. How is that easier than just taking ten bucks out of your wallet.

  • He claims he is really rich but doesn't use his own money to pay for legal bills and the money used to raise his children and their businesses is laundered and corupt. Lock them all up.

  • Why is he still in the Whitehouse He cares about no one but his bank account. American people need to stand up and say no more

  • Trump is a crook, Washington is crooked and the main stream media had a legitimacy problem long before Trump came along.

  • Not to mention the fact that he says he never settles lawsuits. It's not that he lies per se , it's that he tells very checkable lies!!

  • Using his charitable foundation money to make a portrait of himself to put on his wall is so fitting that it's terribly hilarious

  • I really love you guys- you tell it like it really is ! I'm not some religious fanatic but Trump may very well be the Anti- Christ who's coming was foretold. Look it up on your computer. Someone who worships money and power, lies and creates chaos and racial disent. He's the "Great Deceiver".

  • Trump using his charitable foundation like it was his own piggy bank? Is anyone really surprised by this? His followers will just think this story is more leftist fake news, of course, but is anyone else surprised? By the way, no comments from the usual carbuncle (collective noun) of Trump trolls?

  • Someone should ask him if he wants to join exclusive POTUS Club Lincoln,Garfield ,McKinley, Kennedy

  • No its no surprise,of course but it just gets worse and worse day after day after day, when will all this nonsense stop???

  • When does trump have to show respect for the office he is in
    …… history is not going treat this period w kit gloves …. remove this tyrannical con man … times up

  • Maybe Chump's charity paid off the judge in NYC who dismissed the real estate fraud against Miss Ivanka and Pretty Boy Jared.

  • Clinton Foundation was investigated at the same time and came out clean. You are propagating right wing lies.

  • You Go Cenk , Great Job hope Trump start listening to you Guys instead of CNN he might actually be embarassed and start fixing his mess because you Guys are the Real Deal and you tell it as is.

  • Can you imagine if a non-white person did all these scams, frauds, and laundering? Racist white elite scums give each other a free pass.
