The money will be donated to eight charities. On Thursday, the New York court sentenced Donald Trump to pay two million dollars in damages for using
its foundation as a political instrument, in the framework of an amicable agreement. The New York state attorney attacked the foundation and its directors in June 2016, saying Donald Trump had used the organization for personal purposes and not for charity.
The event was, in fact, managed by his campaign team. The $ 2.8 million raised at the gala was only passed through the foundation, used as an instrument of Donald Trump's campaign. While the money was eventually donated to Veterans Support Associations, the prosecutor denounced a mix of politics and humanitarian issues, with Donald Trump publicly demonstrating his generosity.
Donald Trup makes several commitments
To punish Donald Trump's failure to fulfill his obligations as a foundation administrator, New York Supreme Court Justice Saliann Scarpulla has sentenced the President of the United States to pay two million dollars damages.
According to the judgment, Donald Trump has made several commitments to the Court "so that the conduct that gave rise to this action will not happen again in the future". According to prosecutor James, the US president "admits to having personally used improper funds from the foundation."
The foundation was officially dissolved in December 2018.
