United States President Donald Trump agreed to shut down his charity called The Trump Foundation which was his own personal charity entity. Allegations have surfaced that the organization funneled charitable money for his own personal gain. The largest donors to that organization were Vince and Linda McMahon.
Forbes published a story in April 2017 which was titled,“A $5 Million Mystery: How The WWE Became The Trump Foundation’s Biggest Donor.” A sniplet from it reveals this.
"According to the Form 990 filed by the Trump Foundation in 2007, the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) gave 114 times as much to the foundation as Trump did himself. In 2009, the forms show, the WWE gave $1 million more. But the company claims — though will not provide supporting evidence — that the money came from Vince McMahon (the billionaire founder of the WWE) and his family."
The Morning Call today published a story with some further details on the Trump Foundation’s non-charitable spending.
"Trump had given about $5.5 million to his foundation through 2015; his last gift was $35,000 in 2008. Outside donors, many of which did business with the president, have given the foundation about $9.3 million. The biggest donors to the foundation were Vince and Linda McMahon, co-founders of World Wrestling Entertainment, who kicked in $5 million. After becoming president, Trump appointed Linda McMahon to run the Small Business Administration".
On a special edition of Deadline former President Bush Communciatons Director Nicolle Wallace, former FBI Assistant Director of Counterintellgence Frank Figliuzzi spoke about the issue
“We are taking about a crime family. Let’s not forget, we aren’t counting the investigations on all of his associates and associates of associates. If we did that, we’d have a flow chart the size of your back wall. Speaking of spinoff investigations, do you know who the largest singles donors were to the Foundation? Vince and Linda McMahon? Do you know who Linda McMahon is? Linda McMahon was named by Trump as the head of the Small Business Administration. Are we going to have an SBA director who becomes a witness against the president. What was she told about where her money was going? How much does it cost to be named the SBA director. The people in his circle of being investigated. This is unprecedented in our history.”
