How Donald Trump Shifted Kids-Cancer Charity Money Into His Business

In reviewing filings from the Eric Trump Foundation and other charities, it’s clear that the course wasn’t free–that the Trump Organization received payments for its use, part of more than $1.2 million that has no documented recipients past the Trump Organization.

Is Trump A Fascist?
