Donald Trump used more than a quarter of a million dollars in other people's donations to his charity to settle his own legal battles — $258,000 to be exact.
That's from reporting at The Washington Post. David Fahrenthold reviewed legal documents that show checks from the Trump Foundation — which is a charity "funded almost entirely by other people's money."
In New York, a Trump golf course settled a lawsuit by making a donation from the Trump Foundation to the plaintiff's charity of choice.
