    Trump pays $2 million in damages ordered by judge over misuse of charity funds, according to NY attorney general

    It's an "extraordinary rebuke to a sitting president."

    In addition the remaining $1.8 million left in Donald's foundation will be distributed to 8 deserving charities.
    Throughout the 2000s Donald used the charity to benefit himself. He used the charity's cash to buy a portrait of himself. He also used it to boost political campaigns like, Pamela Bondi’s Florida attorney general campaign, so she'd turn around & scratch his back. Then his own 2016 campaign.

    Hi GB,

    I think it should have been more like $2B. Millions really don't hurt this guy because he made more than that on the swindle, and so he comes out ahead. I think for Donald Trump it's always the end game numbers. He thought he could open up the grandest casino with a lot of money, but make a lot more money on the back end. However, when he saw that wasn't likely to happen, he just filed bankruptcy and walked away. Similarly, in this case, his attorneys whittled down his fine for running a scam charitable organization down to $2M and Trump knew that left him ahead of the game and paid...with the agreement that it would close the case against him.

    God bless,
    In Christ, ted

    Agree with you that the amount is much too low. Donald had to pay $25 million for the fraud with Trump University.

    I'm not going to go back and read everything right now, but IIRC, the fines related to the Trump Foundation were as low as they were because the amount of money that was misused was relatively low.
