The Donald J Trump Foundation raised a lot of other peoples’ money and spent it on things that benefited Trump, while allowing the Republican presidential candidate to falsely claim to have made enormous, public spirited donations.

For example, in 2009/10, the Evans Foundation gave the Trump Foundation $150,000. In the same years, the Trump Foundation’s total disbursements were $150,000. Trump took 150K from Evans, gave it away, and claimed that he had been a generous giver — he even won an award for this act, and held the ceremony in his own ballroom, charging the charity a sizable sum to rent it out.

This isn’t an exception. Analysis of the Trump Foundation’s "giving" shows that Trump repeatedly raised money without contributing anything of his own, and then claimed the foundation’s disbursements as evidence of his generosity. Trump’s last contribution to his charity was in 2008
