Attorney General From New York Attacks The Trumps.
It is tough to be a conservative president in this polarized political climate. Liberals seem to be out for blood when it comes to Trump and his family. Another example of this has arisen from New York Attorney General Office. They have decided to sue Trump family and Foundation. They claim he mishandled charitable donations.
“The lawsuit, which seeks to dissolve the foundation and bar President Trump and three of his children from serving on nonprofit organizations, was an extraordinary rebuke of a sitting president. The attorney general also sent referral letters to the Internal Revenue Service and the Federal Election Commission for possible further action, adding to Mr. Trump’s extensive legal challenges.”
The case makes it sound as if Trump and his family kept the money but that’s not the case at all. The lawsuit is more about crossing t’s and dotting i’s. The Trump’s did donate to charities they simply did not have a board of directors and chose the charities based on who they wanted to donate to.
“Decisions concerning the administration of the charitable assets entrusted to the care of the Foundation were made without adequate consideration or oversight and resulted in the misuse of charitable assets for the benefit of Donald J. Trump (“Mr. (“Trump”) Trump” and his personal, political and/or business interests.”
But Trump is not taking this news sitting down he went to Twitter and weighed in on the frivolous lawsuit.
“The sleazy New York Democrats, and their now disgraced (and run out of town) A.G. Eric Schneiderman, are doing everything they can to sue me on a foundation that took in $18,800,000 and gave out to charity more money than it took in, $19,200,000. I won’t settle this case!… Schneiderman, who ran the Clinton campaign in New York, never had the guts to bring this ridiculous case, which lingered in their office for almost 2 years. Now he resigned his office in disgrace, and his disciples brought it when we would not settle.”

Sounds like the Dems are fishing, trying to force Trump to settle out. All of this fuss because he donated in a way that they don’t like. This looks more like a smear campaign than an actual issue worth pursuing.
