Donald Trump Admits To Misusing Charity Money, Claims He Is A Victim Of ‘Political Harrassment’`

U.S. President Donald Trump answers questions while departing the White House on October 03, 2019 in Washington, DC. Trump is scheduled to travel to Florida today before returning to Washington later this evening.

Donald Trump was ordered to pay $ 2 million to charities by a New York state judge for misusing funds raised by his charitable foundation. The president admitted that he used the charity money to pay off business debts, purchase a portrait of himself, and pay for presidential campaign costs, according to The New York Times.

Trump has been facing a legal battle over his use of charity funds after the New York attorney general filed suit against him. In an extremely rare move for the president, he submitted a detailed admission of misusing foundation money, including $ 2.6 million raised in 2016 at a fundraiser for veterans. Money raised at that event was used to pay for campaign costs.

The president also admitted that he spent $ 10,000 of charity money to purchase a portrait of himself, which now hangs at one of his Florida resorts. In addition, he confirmed that he used money from the Donald J. Trump Foundation to pay off lawsuits related to his businesses.
