Trump announces plan to close foundation (Trump trying to make it sound good) President-elect Donald Trump announced Saturday that he plans to dissolve his charitable foundation to avoid a possible conflict of interest. "The Foundation has done enormous good works over the years in contributing millions of dollars to countless worthy groups, including supporting veterans, law enforcement officers and children," Trump said in a statement. "However, to avoid even the appearance of any conflict with my role as President I have decided to continue to pursue my strong interest in philanthropy in other ways," he added. (then the truth begins to come out) "The Trump Foundation is still under investigation by this office and cannot legally dissolve until that investigation is complete,” Amy Spitalnick, a spokeswoman for Schneiderman, said in a statement to The Hill. The New York attorney general's office launched an investigation into the foundation after reports from The Washington Post found that charity funds may have been used to benefit Trump himself. ----------------------------------------------- The Trump Foundation was never licensed, never certified and never audited. When the entire world media was going after the Clinton Foundation, a single reporter looked into the Trump foundation. An investigation by that SINGLE reporter, led to multiple investigations, fines by the IRS, discovery of the foundation being a scam Trump used to pay bribes, lawsuits and buy stuff for his family and a cease and desist order which forbid the illegal foundation to take anymore money from unsuspecting dupes. This is who the Republicans made our president. This on top of the racism and the pu$$y grabbing. Someone wrote the we should be thinking of the poor and needy. Like Florida's hungry Attorney General and starving portrait artists.
