Donald Trump is skipping tonight’s debate because, according to Trump, Fox News and Megyn Kelly have not been nice to him. Trump plans on holding a rally to benefit veterans instead, but The Federalist reports that Trump is funneling all donations for veterans to his personal Donald J Trump Foundation–a charity that has treated veterans as an afterthought in recent years.
From The Federalist:
Honor their valor, the website, donaldtrumpforvets.com, states. Donate now to help our Veterans.
The website, which is nothing more than a single page with stock photos and a credit card donation form, claims that 100% of your donations will go directly to Veterans needs.
There’s only one problem: 100% of the money raised on the site goes directly to Donald Trump’s personal non-profit foundation, according to a disclosure listed at the bottom of the page.
The Donald J Trump Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the disclosure reads. An email confirmation with a summary of your donation will be sent to the email address provided above.
