New York Fines Trump $2 Million for Helping Veterans Charity

ANew York judge has ruled that President Donald Trump must pay a $2 million judgement for improperly using his Trump Foundation to advance his 2016 presidential campaign – but in reality, Trump is being punished for a technicality.Advertisement

That’s in contrast to how liberals are trying to portray the event. As CNN put it in their reporting: “The order and settlement bring an end to questions that first arose during the 2016 campaign about whether Trump used money raised under the guise of charitable work for political gain. The resolution puts the President in the unusual position of having to pay millions in damages while in office, at a time when he faces a large number of other personal legal battles. Filed in June 2018, the lawsuit alleged that the President and his three eldest children — Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric — violated federal and state campaign finance laws and abused the Donald J. Trump Foundation’s tax-exempt status. According to the lawsuit, the Trumps allowed the foundation to be used ‘as little more than a checkbook to serve Mr. Trump’s business and political interests.’”

In reality, this lawsuit was setoff by the following series of events

  1. Ahead of the 2016 Iowa caucus, candidate Trump held a fundraiser. The fundraiser raised $2.8 million, which was all given to veterans charities.
  2. The funds were raised through the Trump Foundation, but campaign staff managed the fundraiser and distributed the funds to charities.
  3. Liberals decided that these funds counted as campaign contributions (zero percent of which went to the Trump campaign), and a judge agreed helped “further Mr. Trump’s political campaign.”

One hundred percent of the money raised went to charity, and the Trump campaigned covered the entire cost of administering distribution of the funds. But because giving millions of dollars to veterans tends to be good PR for a presidential candidate, a judge decided that this helped further the Trump campaign.

So for his efforts to help veterans, Trump was rewarded with a $2 million fine and the billionth bogus media narrative to plague his presidency.

      1. You and quite some millions and millions of people. I do predict he will win 2020. I think the man is doing great, he did what he said he was going to do which is rare for politicians, he makes the left nuts which I secretly enjoy(not so secret now), 3.6% unemployment? Thats´s quite amazing. As Clinton said, it is the economy stupid. Hopefully that message he keeps pounding it and pounding it.

      2. REGARDLESS WHO WINS, WE SHALL ALL LOOSE. RETAIL CHAINS ARE NOT ADDING STORES, THEY ARE ELIMINATING MOST OF THEM, IF NOT CLOSING THEM DOWN FOR GOOD. THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT HAVE BENEFITED FROM THE TAX SO CALLED CUTS ARE THE CEO OF THE COMPANIES, IN WHICH MOST OF THEM HAVE NOT GIVEN ONE PENNEY TO THEIR EMPLOYEES. GREED HAVE IMMENSELY MULTIPLIED. PEOPLE ARE STRUGGLING JUST TO PUT TWO PART TIME JOBS TOGETHER. NO THERE HAS BEEN NO IMPROVEMENTS. OBAMA AND TRUMP ARE SURE DOING A “GOOD JOB”. SECRET PARTNERS—OH YEH!!!
