Folks saw the headline and thought to themselves, Well, yeah, of course Donald Trump ran a crooked charity.
By the 2000s, the charity was largely holding other people's money, which was donated to benefit philanthropic causes.
He spent more than a quarter of a million dollars of the charity's money to settle lawsuits involving his for-profit businesses.
In 1989, it appears he used Foundation money to pay Donald Trump Junior's $7 initiation fee for the Boy Scouts.

As for Trump himself, he avoided the New York Attorney General's desired outcome of a lifetime ban on running any charitable organizations.
Should he seek to engage in philanthropy by opening another charity, the President of the United States will face "numerous restrictions. »
