Judge tells Trump to pay $2 million over alleged misuse of charity foundation

A judge on Thursday ordered President Trump to pay $2 million to a group of nonprofit organizations in a settlement over his alleged misuse of his charitable foundation.

New York’s attorney general in June 2018 sued Trump, accusing him and three of his children of “persistently illegal conduct” at the Donald J. Trump Foundation, which allegedly coordinated unlawfully with his 2016 presidential campaign and which the attorney general said was “little more than a checkbook for payments from Mr. Trump or his businesses to nonprofits, regardless of their purpose or legality.”

When the lawsuit was originally announced, Trump slammed the “sleazy New York Democrats” who brought it and promised, “I won’t settle this case!”
