The trumps do not have a record of being charitable at all in New York circles. Eichenwald won a pulitzer for his research on this.

Most wealthy people have causes they support and donate generously to. You can argue it's done for the wrong reasons, but if sick kids or museums or veterans benefit in the end, I say it's all good.

The trumps have never had as much money as they've claimed and at times have been in serious financial trouble, but somehow it's never affected their lifestyle.

maybe. but according to david fahrenthold eric told him "categorically-and repeatedly" last year that he was able to use the facilities free of charge. will be curious to see if eric responds to fahrenthold's request for clarification.

"profit" is a weasel word. IE "We took in 500k, but that was to cover all the costs associated with providing the facilities".....eric is the one in trouble. It looks like he has committed a crime.

Kinda like Wonderland? It's like going back to the 60's... without the drugs.
