donald drumpf's greed exposed, as if there was any doubt. He should have known his list of "charitable" donations would be investigated when it was released. I could not find drumpf's foundation listed on +Charity Navigator . From +Mother Jones & +Washington Post .....
Reporters who were invited late on Friday to join Mr. Trump for the museum visit, which was not on his schedule, were kept in a media van as he entered the museum. An aide said he would speak with reporters afterward, but Mr. Trump then decided against it. His aides sent out a photo of the Trumps inside the museum about 90 minutes later, along with a statement saying that the rebuilding of ground zero was "what 'New York values' are really about."The donation check was from Mr. Trump's foundation, not from him personally. He had been approached over the years by people trying to raise money for the museum, but he never did, until Saturday.
To back up that claim, Trump's campaign compiled a list of his contributions—4,844 of them, filling 93 pages. But, in that massive list, one thing was missing. Not a single one of those donations was actually a personal gift of Trump's own money.Instead, according to a Washington Post analysis, many of the gifts that Trump cited to prove his generosity were free rounds of golf, given away by his courses for charity auctions and raffles.…Many of the gifts on the list came from the charity that bears his name, the Donald J. Trump Foundation, which didn't receive a personal check from Trump from 2009 through 2014, according to the most recent public tax filings. Its work is largely funded by others, although Trump decides where the gifts go.…The most expensive charitable contributions on Trump's list, by contrast, dealt with transactions related to real estate.
For one, Trump counted $63.8 million of unspecified "conservation easements."…In California, for example, Trump agreed to an easement that prevented him from building homes on a plot of land near a golf course.
