Hundreds of thousands of dollars were funneled from Eric Trump’s charity to the Trump Organization, a explosive report from Forbes shows.
Eric Trump hosted a charity golf tournament for 10 years that utilized some of the elder Trump’s properties. For years, it was believed that the Trump Organization allowed the younger Trump’s charity, which benefited St. Jude’s Hospital for children with cancer, to utilize the properties without paying a fee. Donors were even told that none of their gifts would go toward the Trump Organization, according to the Hill.
It turns out that over $100,000 was actually spent by the charity to pay the Trump Organization.
