As long as we’re on the subject of the charitable proceeds from Donald Trumps event tonight for veterans, it’s worth noting what he’s done for them so far.
As Leon noted, the money from this event is going into the Trump Foundation coffers. How have they spent their money so far? Not so much on veteran groups, as NBC reported today.
Donald Trump has vowed to donate the donations he receives tonight to the Trump Foundation to veterans groups. But a look at The Donald J. Trump Foundation’s history of giving shows that the organization has given a small percentage of its donations to veterans groups.
Since 2010, Trump has donated just $35,000 to veterans groups, according to the foundation’s 990 forms that donated $5 million during the same time.
But they’ve been more than generous to the Clinton Foundation, as we noted earlier this month here at RedState. Trump and his foundation have donated between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation.
