In order to avoid a conflict of interest or any appearance of one, President-elect Donald Trump said Saturday that he will dissolve his philanthropic foundation- the “Donald J. Trump Foundation” as he prepares to take over the White House next month.
This comes as no surprise as Democrats are hell bent on doing whatever they can to screw Trump and screw America.
The plan to shutter the Donald J. Trump Foundation was not unexpected, amid continuing criticism that Trump’s international real estate holdings and other business ventures will present for him as president potential conflicts of interest, FOX reports.
“The foundation has done enormous good work over the years in contributing millions of dollars to countless worthy groups, including supporting veterans, law enforcement officers and children,” Trump said in a statement released by his presidential transition office.
“However, to avoid even the appearance of any conflict with my role as president, I have decided to continue to pursue my strong interest in philanthropy in other ways.”
The statement also said that Trump has asked his legal team to start dissolving the foundation, which he said operated for decades at essentially no cost and funneled 100 percent of the money to charity.
“But because I will be devoting so much time and energy to the presidency and solving the many problems facing our country and the world, I don’t want to allow good work to be associated with a possible conflict of interest,” he said.
“This is a process that my father and my family are taking incredibly seriously,” said Eric Trump, who will help oversee the Trump Organization, and who announced last week that he was terminating fund-raising for his own charity, the Eric Trump Foundation.
Nice job libs!
These are great charities unlike the Clinton Foundation which is under investigation by the FBI for numerous reasons.
STAY TUNED FOLKS. THE FUN HAS JUST BEGUN!
