NEW YORK (AP) ó

.................................

The Trump Foundation reached a deal in December to fold and distribute about $1.7 million in remaining funds to other nonprofits in a court-supervised process. Each charity will get the same amount, and the attorney generalís office has the right to reject the ones it deems unfit.


That agreement, though, didnít resolve the lawsuit, which says the foundationís involvement in a Trump maneuver during the run-up to the Iowa caucuses in 2016 broke rules barring charities from getting involved in political campaigns.


.................................

Instead, he held a rally at the same time as the debate at which he called on people to donate to veterans charities. The foundation acted as a pass-through for people who heeded his call for donations.

James said the evidence of banned coordination between campaign officials and the foundation includes deposition testimony from Trump Organization executive Allen Weisselberg and emails he exchanged with former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

................................................

Trump was also accused in the suit of directing that $100,000 in foundation money be used to settle legal claims over an 80-foot flagpole he had built at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, instead of paying the expense out of his own pocket.

1. It's only a matter of time until he wants to redesign the flag with a picture of himself on it.

4. There are buildings that display a Trump flag right below the

American Flag, much like the royal flag flies below the Union Jack in UK.

Absolutely disgusting.
