The court in new York ordered the President of the United States Donald trump to pay $ 2 million to several non-profit organizations since he used funds from his charitable Foundation Donald J. Trump Foundation for campaign Finance in 2016, according to CNN.
In the list of non-profit organizations that will receive from trump this compensation includes, in particular, the Holocaust Memorial Museum. Between these NGOs will also be distributed to the residual liquid assets of the liquidated Fund of trump, which cost about $ 1.8 million.
The lawsuit against Trump in 2018, was filed by the attorney General of new York Barbara underwood, reports “Interfax”. It was alleged that the US President and his three children broke the law on the financing of election campaigns: abusing tax incentives for charitable funds, they used the Trump Foundation as a “checkbook” for service of the presidential campaign, trump.
The lawsuit noted that the current U.S. President used the charity Fund to extinguish its legal obligation to promote hotels and other businesses, as well as to purchase personal items.
One of the main charges was associated with the collection of funds for the Fund trump in Iowa in January 2016, which were used to Finance his election campaign.
Judge Salliann Scarpulla, however, does not fully satisfy the requirements of the prosecution: the attorney General of new York demanded to ban Trump and his children to be on the Board of Directors of any NGO in new York and insisted on payment of $ 2.8 million in damages.
Trump has also been accused in 2013, he through his Foundation made illegal cash payments to the attorney General of Florida pam Bondi, who wanted to open a case against the organization under the name “trump University”. Opponents of the billionaire would consider the payment of a bribe in exchange for a waiver of initiation of the investigation. Trump, however, called it a voluntary donation for political purposes.
In December last year, the trump after the trial agreed to close his charitable Foundation, Trump Foundation. The prosecution claim he called “politically motivated”. The US President also described himself as “perhaps the only man in history who gave to charity 19 million dollars and were attacked by political hackers from new York”.
According to trump, his Foundation spent even more money to charity than he received. “Vile Democrats from new York and their disgraced (and fled from the city), attorney General Eric Schneiderman are doing everything to take me to court because of the Fund, which received 18.8 million dollars, and gave to charity more money than they received – 19.2 million dollars,” wrote the American leader after the filing of the Prosecutor’s claim.
