Trump Defends Trump Foundation's 'Great Work' Amid Allegations Of ‘Shocking Pattern Of Illegality’
President Trump on Wednesday defended the Trump Foundation on Twitter.
President Trump on Wednesday defended the Trump Foundation's "great work" amid allegations of the organization's "shocking pattern of illegality." He said in a series of tweets: "The Trump Foundation has done great work and given away lots of money, both mine and others, to great charities over the years - with me taking NO fees, rent, salaries etc.
Now, as usual, I am getting slammed by Cuomo and the Dems in a long running civil lawsuit started by sleazebag AG Eric Schneiderman, who has since resigned over horrific women abuse, when I wanted to close the Foundation so as not to be in conflict with politics." "Shady Eric was head of New Yorkers for Clinton, and refused to even look at the corrupt Clinton Foundation…In any event, it goes on and on & the new AG, who is now being replaced by yet another AG (who openly campaigned on a GET TRUMP agenda), does little else but rant, rave & politic against me.
Will never be treated fairly by these people - a total double standard of 'justice,'" Trump further noted. The tweets follow news that the Trump Foundation has reached an agreement to dissolve under judicial supervision. New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood made the announcement in a statement that was released on Tuesday. She also stated that an investigation into the charity revealed "a shocking pattern of illegality involving the Trump Foundation — including unlawful coordination with the Trump presidential campaign, repeated and willful self-dealing, and much more."
