Trump Charity Mostly Free Rounds Of Golf

Trump Charity Mostly Free Rounds Of Golf


DONALD TRUMP LOVES TO TALK ABOUT
HOW CHARITABLE HE IS. UNFORTUNATELY IT LOOKS LIKE HIS
CHARITABLE GIVING IS AS EXAGGERATED AS MOST OF THE
THINGS HE TALKS ABOUT. TO
BACK UP THAT CLAIM HIS
CAMPAIGN COMPILED A LIST OF HIS CONTRIBUTIONS. MOST OF THE THINGS BEING GIVEN
ARE NOT CONTRIBUTIONS, AND ALMOST NONE OF IT INVOLVES HIS
ACTUAL MONEY WHICH IS WHAT I THINK OF WHEN I THINK OF
GIVING TO CHARITY. YOU WILL SEE A CHART OF
BREAKDOWN OF DONATIONS TO THE DONALD J TRUMP FOUNDATION. HE USES THIS TO SEND OUT
GIFTS TO CHARITY. EARLY ON HE HAD PUT IN A LITTLE
BIT OF MONEY TOTALING $2 MILLION OR SO. THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE MONEY,
ESPECIALLY IN THE PAST FIVE YEARS, HE HAS NOT GIVEN ANY
MONEY TO THE FOUNDATION TO BE GIVEN TO CHARITY. HOLD ON, HIS VERSION OF
CHARITY IS I HAVE THIS LAND TO DEVELOP AND I AM NOT, I WILL
KEEP IT AS WHAT? JUST NOT DEVELOPED. THEORETICALLY IF THE PEOPLE
LIVING IN THE AREA DIDN’T WANT IT DEVELOPED, HE DOESN’T
DEVELOP IT. THEN HE SAYS HOWEVER MUCH I
COULD HAVE MADE ON THAT LAND, I DIDN’T MAKE, SO THAT IS A
GIFT TO CHARITY. THAT IS INSANE. HE IS A CRAZY PERSON. DOES HE DEDUCT THIS FROM
TAXES? I DON’T KNOW. HE DOESN’T
REVEAL HIS TAXES. HIS IDEA OF CHARITABLE
GIVING IS HILARIOUS. ALL OF MY RICH NEIGHBORS, THAT
WHAT THIS PLACE TO BE OVERDEVELOPED. I WILL BUY THE LAND THEN I
WILL NOT DEVELOP ON IT. AM I NOT MERCIFUL?
HE IS SO FULL OF SHIT. THE PART OF THE STORY THAT
SPEAKS VOLUMES TO ME IS THE FACT THAT HE THINKS IT IS
CHARITABLE GIVING WHEN HE ALLOWS PEOPLE TO USE HIS GOLF
COURSE FOR CHARITABLE EVENTS. IT’S NOT THE EQUIVALENT OF
GIVING PEOPLE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. HE CLAIMS HE GAVE $100 MILLION TO CHARITY OVER THE
LAST FIVE YEARS. SO, IF A REAL CHARITY MIGHT
HAVE AN AUCTION, AND ONE OF THE THINGS IS YOU GET TO PLAY AT
DONALD TRUMP’S DUMB GOLF COURSE AND SOMEBODY BIDS
$10,000, AND THAT MONEY GOES TO CHARITY. DONALD TRUMP THINKS HE IS GIVING
$10,000 TO CHARITY? YES. THAT COULD BE SOME
PORTION OF IT. BUT THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE
CASES IN WHICH YOU GIVE OUT THESE FREE GOLF COURSE ROUNDS ñ YOU GUYS ARE BEING TOO
CHARITABLE IN THIS CASE. SO, WHEN HE GIVES A FREE FLIGHT OR A
ROUND OF GOLF, HE COUNTS THAT AS A DONATION TO CHARITY. HE WANTED TO HANG OUT WITH
SERENA WILLIAMS, SO HE GIVES HER STUFF AND THAT IS CHARITY. THAT IS INCREDIBLE. IS SHE ON HER WAY TO HOST
A CHARITY EVENT? I SEE NO EVIDENCE OF THAT. I HAVE A TOUGH TIME BELIEVING
THIS CAN BE AS BAD AS WE ARE MAKING IT SEEM. YOU CAN LOOK AT ALL THESE
DIFFERENT DONATIONS. MOST OF THE STUFF INVOLVES PEOPLE THEN GOING TO ONE OF HIS PLACES. IT’S AN INTERESTING TIE TO
THIS CAMPAIGN. A LOT OF THEM ARE BUSINESS
CLIENTS OR PARTNERS OF HIS. SO IT BENEFITS HIM. THEY GO TO HIS PLACE AND
THEY CALL IT CHARITY. ALSO, PEOPLE HAVE BEEN DOING
SOME DIGGING INTO HIS CAMPAIGN SPENDING. HIS CAMPAIGN FOR PRESIDENT SPENDS TONS OF MONEY
AT TRUMP BUSINESSES. THEY GO THROUGH ALL OF HIS DIFFERENT BUSINESSES FUNNELING MILLIONS OF
DOLLARS INTO HIS BUSINESSES. THIS CAMPAIGN MIGHT JUST BE A
BUSINESS TACTIC OF HIS IT TURNS OUT. YOU WILL SEE THE ESTIMATES
OF THE VARIOUS DIFFERENT TYPES OF GIFTS. THOSE CONSERVATION EASEMENTS ARE
64 PERCENT OF THAT 100 MILLION HE SAYS HE DONATED. THAT IS JUST ñ HE DIDN’T BUY
A PIECE OF PROPERTY AND TURN IT INTO A PARK. OR A PLACE THAT SEALS MATE
IN.
I DON’T KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT. SOME OF THE CASES
BY THE WAY, HE DID GO ON TO DEVELOP ON THOSE LANDS. IF YOU
CAN BRING THAT BACK UP? 64 PERCENT OF ALL THIS CHARITY IS JUST NOT DEVELOPED. THE LAND
DONATED TO NEW YORK STATE, THAT IS TRUE. HE DID DO THAT ONE.
THAT WAS BACK IN 2006. GIFTS FROM THE DONALD J TRUMP
FOUNDATION, 7 MILLION, OF WHICH ABOUT 2 MILLION IS HIS DISMAY BY
TRUMP GOLF COURSES, THEORETICALLY SOME OF THOSE
PEOPLE MIGHT HAVE GONE TO THOSE ANYWAY AND SPENT MONEY. IN THIS
CASE, THEY ARE NOT. THEORETICALLY FOREWENT GETTING
SOME OF THAT MONEY. IN ALL, HE GAVE ABOUT TWO
PERCENT OF WHAT HE SAID HE ACTUALLY GAVE. THIS DOESN’T SURPRISE ME.
ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU CONSIDER THE ANIMOSITY THAT TRUMP SEEMS TO
HAVE FOR POOR PEOPLE. THIS STORY REMINDED ME OF A STORY THAT JOHN AND I DID TOGETHER MONTHS AGO
ABOUT HOW TRUMP EXPLICITLY STATED THAT HE DOES NOT BELIEVE
THE GAME OF GOLF IS FOR “POOR PEOPLE”. THE WAY HE SPEAKS ABOUT
THE POOR ñ THE PART THAT FRUSTRATES ME THE MOST, YOU LOOK
AT HIS VOTER BASE AND YOU LOOK AT THE NUMBER OF MIDDLE-CLASS,
WORKING-CLASS AMERICANS WHO HAVE BEEN FOOLED BY HIS BULLSHIT, AND
THEY ARE VOTING FOR A CANDIDATE THAT HAS BEEN VERY
OPEN ABOUT HOW MUCH HE DOESN’T LIKE THEM. I MEAN … AT THE END OF THE DAY TRUMP
SUPPORTERS WILL NOT CARE ABOUT THIS. HE STILL GAVE MILLIONS TO
CHARITY, THAT IS GOOD. I WILL SAY THAT. SAY I GAVE $2 MILLION
TO CHARITY OVER THE COURSE OF 10 YEARS.
HONESTLY, IF I HAD MILLIONS OF DOLLARS ñ WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE
REAL NUMBER THE GUY WHO SAYS HE IS WORTH 8 MILLION, GIVING 2
MILLION TO CHARITY DOESN’T SEEM LIKE THE CHRISTIAN BEHAVIOR THAT
HE LATELY HAS TRIED TO SAY IS HIS ACTUAL IDENTITY. IT SEEMS
LIKE HE GAVE A LITTLE BIT TO CHARITY. THAT WOULD BE HONEST.
BUT WITH DONALD TRUMP YOU DON’T GET HONESTY, ESPECIALLY ABOUT HIS MONEY. HE HAS TO MAKE UP
EVERYTHING SO HE SEEMS BIGGER. THIS MIGHT BE ONE OF THE REASONS
HE DOESN’T WANT TO REVEAL HIS TAX RETURNS. IF HE IS WRITING
OFF ALL THIS STUFF IN GENERAL DONATIONS THAT ARE NOT, AND HE
IS ACTUALLY MAKING MONEY NOT PAYING TAXES, THEN THAT IS ACTUALLY FRAUD. HE COULD
ACTUALLY END UP IN LEGAL TROUBLE. ALSO WE CAN FORGET THAT
HE DOESN’T WANT TO REVEAL THAT BECAUSE IT WOULD SHOW THAT HE
DOESN’T HAVE ANYWHERE NEAR THE MONEY HE SAYS HE DOES. WE KNOW
FROM PREVIOUS ESTIMATES OF HIS WEALTH, HE VALUES HIS BRAND AT $2.2 BILLION. UNFORTUNATELY YOU
ARE NOT GOING TO FIND THAT ON HIS TAXES BECAUSE IT IS INSIDE HIS OWN HEAD. ANYWAY, MOST PEOPLE THAT SUPPORT
HIM DON’T CARE ABOUT THAT. YOU DON’T EVER BRAG THAT
YOU HAVE GIVEN AWAY FREE GOLF COURSES AND FREE VISITS ñ YOU CAN DO IT, AND
IT IS ADMIRABLE. THAT IS IT THOUGH, THAT IS ALL YOU CAN DO. YOU CAN’T MAKE A FUSS OVER IT.
HE IS SO OUT OF TOUCH, SO CLUELESS. TO ANA’S POINT, HE IS
THIS OUT OF TOUCH, THIS COMPLETELY ATTACHED FROM HOW ANY REAL PERSON LIVES. HE HAS STILL
SUCKERED ALL OF THESE REAL PEOPLE. LA TIMES HAD A REALLY
GOOD STORY ON A TRUMP VOTER OUTSIDE OF VEGAS. IT WAS ONE
PRECINCT WHERE TRUMP WAS WINNING 63 PERCENT. IT WAS MOSTLY
WORKING-CLASS. IT TURNS OUT THE GUY VOTED FOR OBAMA TWICE, HE IS LATIN. WHEN HE SAYS HE HAS BLACK
AND ARAB FRIENDS, HE WASN’T KIDDING. THEY BUILT IT UP THAT
WAY. AT THE END OF IT, YOU THINK THAT GUY IS RACIST. BUT IT WAS ñ
YOU SEE A GUY WHO VOTED FOR OBAMA TWICE
AND YOU ARE LIKE HOW
DOES THIS GUY, THIS LATINO, GET CO-OPTED? THE SYSTEM IS TOTALLY
RIGGED. ANYWAY, THERE ARE A LOT OF RACISTS AT
TRUMP RALLIES. HE BREATHES IT, HE INSTIGATES IT. WE SHOULD
NOT PIGEONHOLE TRUMP SUPPORTERS. I AM NOT PIGEONHOLING THEM. A
LOT OF THEM ARE IDIOTS, I’M NOT GOING TO HIDE IT. THEY ARE
IDIOTS BECAUSE THEY SEE SOMEONE WHO SPEAKS OPENLY ABOUT HIS
DISDAIN FOR CERTAIN GROUPS OF PEOPLE, AND THEY FEEL EMPOWERED BY THAT. THEY LIKE IT, OH, HE
TELLS IT HOW IT IS. SO YOU’RE JUST GOING TO VOTE FOR A MORON BECAUSE HE TOLD IT HOW IT IS? SO THE PEOPLE WHO TELL IT HOW
IT IS, ARE PEOPLE THAT NEVER CLAIMED TO TELL IT HOW IT IS.
RUSH LIMBAUGH THINKS HE TELLS IT LIKE IT IS. RUSH LIMBAUGH SAYS
THAT HE WANTS PEOPLE TO WIN THE SUPER BOWL AND YOU ARE LIKE
WHAT YOU TALKING ABOUT? GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE. HE SAYS IDIOTIC THINGS. HE HAS A THREE HOUR A DAY
SHOW. HE HAS THE TIME TO TELL IT HOW IT IS. HE JUST CHOOSES NOT
TO.

  • Do these ultra rich families ever introspect and ask themselves, "Who would I be without my inherited wealth?"

  • another reason Trump won't release his tax returns—along with the fact that he's worth about half as much as he claims, according to Forbes.

  • Charity for the rich and elites.
    Waste ,if you ask me – giving to those who dont NEED it
    And no,I disagree with John's argument that Charity only means giving money

  • To those who think donations from Donald Trump's "foundation" are donations from Donald Trump… GET A CLUE! Just because he gets to decide where other people's donations end up, so that they can most benefit him personally, doesn't mean he's the one making the donations. It's a game, but with real money. Other people's real money… but still, JUST A GAME he's playing! Worse yet, it's a zero-sum game, where everything he wins is someone else's loss!

    Notice how Donald Trump is using his "PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN" to increase his own wealth and exempt himself from paying taxes on his income? Does ANYONE OUT THERE have any doubts that if elected he'll use the OFFICE OF PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES in the exact same way? Is there any doubt at all that his intention is to make himself richer and more powerful at the expense of the entire population of the planet, and ESPECIALLY at the expense of those who pulled every dirty trick they could think of to help him get elected? No doubt in MY mind. None what-so-ever!

  • Please look at the Washington delegates – 101 but only 34 distributed – where are the rest of the delegates??????

  • lay off conservation easements. They can be miss used like any charitable process, but they serve as an important tool for protecting land for future generations. If your not going to be nuanced your not helping the public dialog.

  • Seriously, what's wrong with Ben? He has heard Trump say bullshit stuff for a long time now. And he can't believe that he doesn't do charity and lies?

  • Why am I not surprised? lol So much for supposed charity.. Trump has a history of kicking people out of their own homes to build his golf courses..

  • Trump's dick is so far down your throats, it's not even funny. Trump could walk down the street and you guys would come out with a video titled, "Trump walks like a total bigoted racist down this street".

  • TYT Conspiracy theorists… Nice… -If you guys really cared about this, you would examine the Clinton foundation. But I don't think you'll do that.

  • This isnt even half true. Just because you dont give a charitable contribution in your foundations name doesnt mean you dont give charity. The donald j trump foundation is a foundation charity for THE CORPORATION. A private person can give whatever/whenever he wants without any hassle or problems. For example he just gave 100k to a charity for 9/11. In addition he also gave a million dollars to the vets. Do you even understand how bad the Clinton Foundation is? Bill Clinton literally said "we have to pay the bills, we have to pay the bills, what are you gonna do?" which is fine but I dont understand why you guys will never bring that up.

  • Giving time on a major league golf course is extremely valuable. Hillary Clinton charged a college $200,000 to speak at a fundraiser. The college says it still made money off of it. In contrast Trump is a much better person.

  • As someone who actually works for an accountant it is astounding how many people think giving charity all of a sudden is a "tax write off". Those deductions have limits you idiots.

  • Foregoing development for land conservation is kind of like holding a gun to the head of a fluffy bunny, and letting it go, saying, "OK, I won't destroy your habitat." However, while one can argue over the "valuation" of what wasn't developed, it is a gift. Is Trump any worse here than a philanthropist who's done the same thing to protect open spaces? This does happen, and it does benefit land conservation.

  • I don't think people like Trump. I think people thinks he's better than the alternative candidates, which is saying quite a bit about his opponents.

  • Again….why do not talk about the $32 millions that Trump scammed from the buyers of the Mexico, Baja California Trump Towers that was never developed?????????????

  • The amount of Trump shills on these videos almost makes the comments look like a trollish echo chamber.
    Grow up kids and get a brain.
    Maybe you'll realize he's manipulating you like the puppets…
    Not saying you are puppets, but if you talk like a puppet, move like a puppet, and look like a puppet…
    How many more reasons do you need to check off before we just say: "You're a puppet"
    "Stop being a puppet"

  • I think every billionaire should give most of their wealth to charity, they don't need all that money and that goes to all the billionaires. Problem is most billionaire's became billionaire's through a business mentality and that mentality isn't always charitable, it's why many will boast how charitable they've been yet haven't actually given hardly anything compared to their bank balance.

  • The Girru Says "Are you trying to imply some sort of bias FOR Clinton by TYT?" (not what I suggested)
    TYT may criticize Hillery now and then. But every single thing they can find against Trump they make a prog about it – like this one – which is just another flimsy chance to slander. TYT is biased AGAINST Trump (they are their to server their pay masters just like Cruz who they never touch – thats why they totally attacked The Bundy's – they are Gov financed).
    Why not mention Trump wants to stop TTP, wants to label GMO, wants to stop Obamacare, Common Core, wars of aggression for the bankers, wants to bring jobs back to America, Wants to audit the Fed, is  SELF FUNDING and has not gone to Israel to kiss the Kotel like Zioncon Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney
    btw: YOUTUBE should send me to the relevent comment not to the top of the list. (terrible system)

  • the young jew👃⚡⚡🌄                                                      ✴🌛

  • Its a normal Bissning Meating. Its leagel.
    Everyone does it. You invite people for meal, golf or what ever, so you can talk about them helping youre charity or attending some Charity Event.

  • Look at all these comments, outraged that Trump's dishonesties and lies are pointed out. You are as bad as the fascist psychopath

  • Donald Drumpf is going to be the first US Presidential candidate to be convicted of tax fraud DURING a general election.

  • The land conservation could be on a golf course which he wouldn't develop anyway. He would then get a tax CREDIT for this not a deduction. It's an additional way to squeeze value out of properties. I'm a bit disappointed you guys didn't look into this. It's exactly as bad as it sounds.

  • i'm no trump supporter, but i've done some work for the lower shore land trust, which manages conservation easements in south eastern maryland

    if he indeed donated that land to a conservation easement, and assuming similar state laws, then that land is protected from development in perpetuity, and its donation and the positive effect on the preservation of habitat should not be discounted

  • Rachel Maddow did a show on Trump's gift to the state of New York. What he gave was a piece of land he bought to develop. It turned out he was unable to develop the land so he donated the land to the state as a state park. The place is so of the highway that it is almost unreachable without a 4-wheel drive vehicle. It has no facilities and is so vandalized that it is a dump.

  • Sooo Trump's campaign, which is funded by a loan from Trump's Foundation, puts millions of dollars back into Trump's businesses? What a mess

  • Trump is a magnificent monument for how immensely stupid and gullible human beings are. Donald Trump could literally pee on his supporters from his podium at rallies, and they would still love him. It's a very interesting psychological phenomenon that ought to be studied in detail.

  • All of you people are so full of shit. Charity is giving something to poor people so that they can eat, stay warm, get healthy. I mean how hard can it FUCKEN BE? ASSHOLES!!!!!

  • This is what amazes me.Liberals are always spouting off about how to spend other people's money for giving to their causes but when it comes to giving themselves,they don't! Here is an article from the NYT of all places and this liberal covers this very subject about how much more generous conservatives are than liberals..Take a read. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/21/opinion/21kristof.html?_r=0

  • Yet another TYT spin: Trump hate poor people because he say that golf is not for poor people.
    Golf is really expensive sport, not only equipment, but especially building and maintaining golf courses.
    If 18 hole golf course costs tens of millions to build and then millions to maintain, while only handful of people can use it simultaneously, no wonder it is very expensive, therefore not for poor people.

    For retarded people: we are not talking about hitting some golf balls at your back yard with second hand golf club from charity shop.

    TYT are idiots again.

  • First without even listening to anything else, I'm tired of the whole concept of golf courses. Golf courses are of the biggest polluters and are the biggest polluters near cities, considering the dumb asses that want a green lawn like the golf course. The amount of poison and fertilizer needed to keep a golf course green, is poisoning the rivers and streams and the fish that I like to eat, You dorks are buying poison fish, animal and grain products from the store. The processed stuff is worse because you get biological agents and poison.

  • for anyone confused at what the hell a conservation estment is lol.
    http://www.nature.org/about-us/private-lands-conservation/conservation-easements/what-are-conservation-easements.xml

  • Well…to be fair, I think he's got a case "Affluenza". Uncontrollably says and does what he ever wants, feels there will be no consequences, doesn't give 2 shits about anyone else, thinks everyone is below him. Yup, sounds like a big positive dose of it. All we can do is hope that it's fatal….and soon.

  • How horrible & scandalous that Trump plays golf & gives away some games. I guess that erases all the wonderful buildings he created & people he helps out other ways, like paying off their mortgage for giving him a ride when his car breaks down (google it).

  • The only thing Donald Trump gives a shit about is Donald Trump. I am very, very scared this country may be stupid enough to elect him.

  • I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Trump DOES NOT tell it like it is. He tells it like he sees it. There is a big difference.

  • I worked at a call center….and people got mad when I told them how it is…they wanted me to tell them what they wanted to hear..and sometimes they told this directly…

  • with this big scheme of his throughout his life, will law inforcement either local or federal finally investigate this long time criminal and prove what a dishonest lyin person he has more than likely always been!!! if he were a person of color he would already be labeled a thug!!!!!

  • Still no evidence of Trumps Plan……………..btw I had two majors in college. Neither were English. So you can take your assumptions………..and put them were they should be.

  • so all that millions of dollars you think doesnt matter. my gosh people atleast he gives something. what do you fuckers give. You people sound like a bunch of middle school kids gossiping. why?? You son of a bitches you dont report anything thats truth. of course your gonna report just what you want to cause your not supporters of him. your going to say bad shit. your racist bastards. the trump supporters are mainly Christians. you fucktards are going to hell.

  • The fact that a zillion dollars of Trump's campaign funds are going into his own back pocket is very interesting to learn.

    Also something Clinton really should use against him.

  • I Am a Sander's voter…..BUT….People who have been forgotten and disinherited by both Democrats & Republicans …..&…..have lost their factory jobs …..which is ALL….Yes…. A L L …..they had….and do not have the breathing space for polite chit-chat…..are angry….Bernie Sanders addresses their deepest needs …..BUT…….Trump addresses their hurt and anger….AND….When Anger is all a person has left,it becomes distorted & deformed…..and Anger in its impotence desperately seeks a voice…..BUT….Anna & Friends….you could construct {yes construct}a little actual empathy for these angry working class people who have been disinherited….and use your talents to understand that they have been disinherited….and to find words to build some principles of unity ..

  • You can donate to charity in ways besides directly giving them cash. The rounds of golf were donated by trump to charity events to raise money or to use in raffles for various organizations. It is incorrect to say that trump is donating golf to his rich buddies. Instead his rich buddies are paying x amount of dollars for the golf, which then goes to charity. Since trump is not making money off of the golf outing, that money is going to charity. Its an indirect way to donate to charity. People do this all the time, they donate things of value to charitable events to raise cash. I donate material things all the time to various charities, not cash, and its a tax write off. Just because I dont do cash donations, that doesnt make me any less giving.
    Oh and it would help if TYT did a little bit of research on conservation easement donations. They are guessing what it means in this segment. It is considered 100% charitable and is tax deductible. Just because TYT does not consider any of trumps donations as charity, does not make it so.
    TYT is trying to split hairs. So desperate.

  • Hahaha. So he supposedly gave basically what I really think he has in liquid assets. Haha. RIGHT. I highly doubt he PERSONALLY is worth even a billion. And probably owes as much as he has.

  • Jeesh a bunch of assholes who couldn't tell a story straight if there life depended on it. Hopefully you are also moving OUT of the USA when Donald Trump is elected president?
