    Trump family opens New Non profit Charity

    The Trump sons were listed as on board of Directors. They advertised that for 500,000 and 1 million would buy 15 personal minutes with Donald Trump.
    When the issue was raised as to what charity this would benefit, there was silence.
    Then the issue was raised that as directors of Trump enterprise, wasn't there a conflict of interest involving the future president ?

    Indeed, I've thought about opening a non profit. Most of the ones existing are nothing but a legal loophole scam.
    It works like this, you open one with Catchy name benifiting a worthy cause like veterans. You as director can pay yourself whatever you want, and as long as 20 percent of funds go to beneficiary - you're golden.
    Some only give out 5 percent. If it was very successful you could make millions and give out 50% which would make yours one the best.

    So donors get to take some pictures with Trump and then go on a fishing trip with his kids with all the money going to charity.

    The issue caused the sons to be removed from the charity.
    This comes on the heels of trumps other charity closed it doors because it was not licensed to operate in New York and they opened an investigation into self dealing. Trump used it as his own piggy bank.
    Then, one must question whether Trump has divested himself from his own buiness. He said he would and thy his kids would maintain it doing no more investments. Yet Ivanka has sat in on dignataries visits, his sons are putting his presence up for sale through this charity. It creates a Sticky mess and I'm surprised they are too stupid to see it.
    Thanks from Bourne

    It is very easy to check the % each Charity goes to Charity. I quit giving to some after checking. Surprising,too.

    If they register as a non-profit, their finances will be subject to auditing.

    At this point, Don Jr. and Eric could open a bordello in the West Wing...

    and Spookycolt would say "So? They are providing a needed service to lonely men! Why do you liberals hate love???"

    Selling access to the President. Disgusting. And as he has done before, Trump uses charitable donations to pay off lawsuits.

    On 20 January 2017 we'll the political eqivalent of La Cosa Nostra in the White House.
