Let us see, Jared Kushner’s father went to Federal prison for illegal campaign contributions, tax evasion and witness tampering. Of course those are the nicer elements of his nefarious career. But, what of his son, the wunderkind Jared? He’s up to his neck is all sorts of deals, has lost his top security clearance and he is banned from state secrets. The wunderkind was supposed to negotiate with China and Russia and broker a peace in the Middle East. Let’s put all that on hold. No security clearance, negotiating $500 billion loans while in the White House!
But, what of his daughter, the King of Self’s number one princess. What qualifications did she bring to the White House? She ran a possible money-laundering jewelry business, funded by her old man, the King. Of course, she is the daughter of his first foreign wife, who he beat up and sexually attacked after she left his bed. Why did she do that? Well he was cheating with his girlfriend Marla Maples. She is the mother of their illegitimate daughter, Tiffany, born months before their marriage. She was dumped by the Donald weeks before her pre-nuptial agreement was to expire. But, of course, he was cheating with his third wife, an illegal alien, who had violated her visa, worked illegally in America, and was a Sapphic, nude model, who has been accused of being an Escort Queen. In 1996, she moved to New York City, living in an apartment in Zeckendorf Tower, Union Square with a roommate, photographer Matthew Atanian, per Zampolli’s arrangements. She did ten paid modeling jobs in the U.S. in the seven weeks before she received legal permission to work in the country. Where are her 1099’s, who paid her rent, did she pay taxes?
But, what of her parents? Why and how are they living here? I thought the King of Self was against “Chain Immigration!” So, aside from his cheating on both his first wives, he has been exposed as cheating with at least two women, Stormy Daniels and Playmate Bunny Karen McDougal. Of course, he is being sued for sexual harassment and he has been accused by 19 women for all levels of sexual harassment, which covers the gambit from grabbing, fondling, kissing and more.
But, what of Trump’s loutish sons, Junior and Eric. They have been traveling the world on the White House travel tab. From 2007 to 2016, Eric led The Eric Trump Foundation, a charity that raised money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. In June 2017, it was reported that the Eric Trump Foundation shifted a portion of that money to the Trump Organization ostensibly to cover the expenses of various fundraising events, though charity experts say there was no reasonable cost justification. Trump denies any wrongdoing and pledges to cooperate with any official review of the matter. What has done to justify his existence? Forbes also reported that more than $500,000 of the money donated for cancer patients “was re-donated to other charities, many of which were connected to Trump family members or interests, including at least four groups that subsequently paid to hold golf tournaments at Trump courses.”[ According to Forbes, “All of this seems to defy federal tax rules and state laws that ban self-dealing and misleading donors. It also raises larger questions about the Trump family dynamics and whether Eric and his brother, Don Jr., can be truly independent of their father.” The Foundation says that relevant donors were informed that donations would be redirected.
On June 9, 2016, Donald Trump Jr. attended a meeting arranged by publicist Rob Goldstone on behalf of Emin Agalarov. The meeting was held in Trump Tower in Manhattan, between three members of the 2016 Donald Trump presidential campaign: Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort – and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, her translator Anatoli Samochornov, Russian-American lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin, and Ike Kaveladze, a Russian-American, U.S.-based senior vice president at Crocus Group, the real estate development company run by Aras Agalarov.
Approximately a year later, Trump Jr. initially told the media that adoption of Russian children was the main subject of the meeting. On July 8, 2017, Trump Jr. tweeted his email exchange with Goldstone. It revealed that Trump Jr. had agreed to attend the meeting with the understanding he would receive information damaging to Hillary Clinton, which he considered opposition research. Goldstone also wrote in one of Trump Jr.’s publicly-disclosed emails that the Russian government was involved. Robert Mueller, the special counsel of the Department of Justice in charge of Russia-related investigations, is investigating the emails and the meeting. Although the White House lauded Trump Jr. for his transparency, he released the e-mails only after The New York Times informed him that they had them and were going to publish a story about them.
So, here it is the beginning of the Fall of 2018, and it has gotten worse. Massive scandals, ethics and emoluments violations, litigation from sexually harassed women, shake-ups in his Cabinet, his White House staff, his legal representation, and anything else this unhinged brigand touches. What else is new? Trump Charity- More crimes, and rip-offs!
Trump loots his own phony Foundation as his own Piggy Bank for himself and his family! In 2007, Donald Trump bought a six-foot-tall portrait of himself at a fundraiser auction, and paid with $20,000 from his namesake charity, the Donald J. Trump Foundation.
Artist Michael Israel — the “speed painter” who painted the portrait of Trump — released the first public photos of the portrait. Israel painted the piece in just five or six frenetic minutes, during a charity gala at Trump’s own Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Fla.

Afterward, Israel auctioned the portrait off. Trump’s wife Melania won the auction, with a bid of $10,000. Then the auctioneer convinced her to double it. Half of the proceeds went to Israel, the painter, and half went to the charity that hosted the event, then called the Children’s Place at Home Safe. The charity is now called HomeSafe. It helps children and families harmed by domestic violence. When a check came, however, it wasn’t Trump or his wife who actually paid for the painting. Instead, it was Trump’s charity — which, even by that time, was largely filled with money from other donors, and not from Trump himself.
A few years later, Donald Trump used a fake bidder to buy a portrait of himself for $60,000 using his own charity’s cash, Michael Cohen’s testimony has revealed. During his explosive testimony to the House oversight committee, Mr Cohen said that the President had instructed him to find a ‘straw bidder’ to buy the portrait of him that was being auctioned at an event. He said Mr Trump then told the Trump Foundation – a charitable organization – to repay the fake bidder the $60,000 that had been spent on the painting, despite keeping the piece of art himself.

Cohen told the committee: “Mr Trump directed me to find a straw bidder to purchase a portrait of him that was being auctioned at an Art Hamptons Event. “The objective was to ensure that his portrait, which was going to be auctioned last, would go for the highest price of any portrait that afternoon.”
Now, a new Washington Post report reveals new details about how the real-estate billionaire has used his tax-exempt, private foundation to benefit himself in unusual ways—including branding others’ charitable donations as his own. In 2010, for instance, Trump was honored by the Palm Beach Police Foundation for contributing $150,000 to the group, but none of the money came out of his pocket. Instead, Trump solicited the money from the Charles Evans Foundation, which gave his foundation the $150,000 over the previous months. In addition to receiving the credit, Trump may even have profited from the transaction; according to the Post, the police foundation gala was held at Trump’s pricey Mar-a-Lago resort.
The Trump Foundation isn’t low on cash because it is so charitable, either. The family foundation writes few checks each year, and of these, several either raise red flags or appear to be violations of I.R.S. rules. According to the *Post’*s investigation, on one occasion the Trump Foundation paid $20,000 for a six-foot-tall portrait of Trump. On another, it reportedly paid $12,000 for a football helmet signed by Tim Tebow, who was playing for the Denver Broncos at the time. Both instances could be classified as examples of “self-dealing” if Trump kept both items, which the Post reports is when members of a charity use its funds to purchase items for themselves. (It is unclear where both items are today.)
The Trump Foundation also reportedly footed the bill for a number of on-air promises Trump made to pay “out of my wallet” while he was the star of NBC’s The Celebrity Apprentice and when the billionaire participated in a contest called Trump Pays Your Bills!, which aired on Extra. Many of Trump’s other donations, which the Post reports range from about $1,000 to $50,000, go to charities that rent out Trump properties, such as Mar-a-Lago. The paper also identified four charities that said they never received the contributions the Trump Foundation said it had donated to them. Accountants for the Trump Foundation did not respond to the Post’s request for comment.
