The Legal Status Of Donald Trump's Charity Is Questionable
The Trump Foundation never obtained the proper registration in New York, where the charity is based.By Lindsey Pulse | September 30, 2016
Donald Trump's charity foundation might not be playing by the rules. The organization reportedly never got the right certification to solicit money from the public.
Under New York law, charities that solicit more than $25,000 per year from the public have to complete a special registration. Among other things, it requires charities to undergo annual audits.
The Washington Post — citing the New York attorney general's office — says the Donald J. Trump Foundation never went through that registration.
