It’s a double dose of low-grade evil: First a craptastic Americana hotel chain – then some shady foundation funds.
On Tuesday afternoon Forbes detailed how Eric Trump’s charitable foundation may have funneled money intended for pediatric cancer patients into the pockets of his family members and the coffers of some of their own charities — likely at the behest of his father – the current president.
Shortly before the spike in costs the Donald J. Trump Foundation donated $100,000 to the Eric Trump Foundation — a gift explicitly made . . . to offset the increased budget. . . .
In effect though this maneuver would appear to have more in common with a drug cartel’s money-laundering operation than a charity’s best-practices textbook.
That $100,000 in outside donations to the Donald J. Trump Foundation (remember: Trump himself didn’t give to his own foundation at this time) passed through the Eric Trump Foundation — and wound up in the coffers of Donald Trump’s private businesses.
