After ducking the final Republican presidential debate heading into next week’s Iowa caucuses, GOP front-runner Donald Trump announced that he would hold his own pro-veterans event during the debate to raise money for veterans. Trump even set up a special website to solicit donations to help veterans.


Thats awesome Trump! way to go dude..........

Uh wait what?




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.

Well , really looks like this guy is a Paragon for standing up for our vets huh? Tell me why is this going to his foundation instead?

If you guys havent figured out yet this guy is a charlatan , I dunno what will

If this was any other candidate people would be flipping out about this, but im sure his supporters will just make more excuses

This to me is absolutely discusting on his part,

This man is USING THE TROOPS, people claiming that Cruz is using the troops because hes challenging Trump to a debate, while others are willing to donate MILLIONS if he will do it, to charitable organizations for the troops.

Give me a break, this is going directly into TRUMPS pocket to benefit HIM, nice 501(c)(3) there.......


Some more about his foundation



Trump’s politics are no more consistent in his giving than anywhere else. He has donated both to the Gay Men’s Health Crisis and the Billy Graham Evangelical Association, a decidedly anti-gay organization. And his love of celebrity is just as evident in donations to the Ronald Reagan Foundation, the Clinton Foundation, and charities associated with Joe Torre, Larry King, and Arnold Palmer.

Among his donations are $10,000 to Jenny McCarthy’s Generation Rescue, which champions the theory that vaccines cause autism, and $1,000 to the New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Project cofounded by Tom Cruise, which offered free Scientology-based cleansing to 9/11 first responders.—Ruth McCambridge

all it says is that it is a 501c3, a not for profit - ? sorry if I am missing it.....

the donations are to the site and re-distributed - no?

So what is exactly the "The Donald J Trump Foundation " ?

Could that be for the veterans?

I don't think even he could be this stupid.

Here is some more info on his "Donald Trump Foundation".

no the 100 percent go to HIS foundation, not to wounded warriors not to other places.....

And hes made his foundation private so no one can see where hes sending the funds to, or how much....

Does no one else find that a bit shady?

He's afraid of Megan Kelly and ran for the hills. Then he said he'll raise donations for Wounded Warriors and all I can think about is how he using them for his own personal gain but I never imagined he would use them for his own personal wallet.

He's a scumbag and he constantly proves this day in, day out. I can't believe a candidate can retweet racist tweets and still be in the race, let alone be the front runner. That really says something about those who support him.

He doesn't want to president to make America great. He wants to make himself great. He doesn't care about you.

I was wondering if this was going to show up here... Thing is, I think Donald is sincere (as sincere as he gets) in wanting to help the veterans. What this shows me is that this whole "rally" was thrown together in the 2-3 seconds after he decided to "punish" FOX for "treating him unfairly". Boo-freaking-hoo, by the way.

Anyway, once he decided to pull out of the debate, he yelled a bunch of orders and said, "Make it happen"! So, people started stumbling all over themselves to make a 'real' charity event happen. One small problem... Where do we put the donations? Well, we'll put them in the Trump foundation and disperse them later to veteran organizations.

It just shows that this wasn't a planned event. He made it happen to make himself look good. Or try to. Lipstick on a pig, right?

No the Trump foundation has been around for years, its not just for the troops and any of the charity watch websites you go to
if you look it up, it tells you theres no information because its private

So they wont disclose how much they give or to whom or how its allocated.......

Transparency my butt........the whole thing is there for Trump to fanagle money and taxes

I can't believe one of our candidates are being investigated by a email scandal and still America will vote or her.

Umm, I don't really understand.

He owns a charity that gives back to vets. You donate to that charity, it goes to his foundation, which in turn is dolled out to Vets and Vet services.

So unless you have SEC Filings or something similar showing he spent the money on other things.....we don't have a clue where that money is going.

Says him.......and since when has his word been good on anything? how often does he flip flop or outright lie?

If hes so transparent where its going then why does he make it where its not public so people can see where the funds are going....

This isnt a new charity, the Donald J Trump fun has been around for years

yes because he loves the vets, the Foundation has been around since 1988




beyond the political expediency that the latter offers, is that the Donald J. Trump Foundation hasn't given a lot to veterans or veterans groups. The Weekly Standard's John McCormack detailed that giving, contrasting the $57,000 the Trump Foundation gave veterans groups from 2009 to 2013 with the $100,000 it gave to the William J. Clinton Foundation in 2009 alone.


MAN he loves those vets




It's worth noting, too, that from 2001 to 2013 — the period for which federal reporting forms are available — the largest gifts to the foundation didn't come from Trump. Over that period, he gave about $2.8 million, none of it after 2008. The biggest donor? The WWE, as in World Wrestling Entertainment.


Whew such a charitable man




Forbes also found that Trump, who we estimate is worth $4.5 billion, has not made personal contributions to his foundation during the same time period. We reached out to his spokespeople for comment, but did not hear back before publishing.

You'd have to ask those donating, although I would imagine they're donating 'to DONALD' more than to the vets. Whatever his supporters can do to show they support him, they will do.

With his experience and reputation, I wouldn't doubt that there's some shade going on. It may just be so he can say he made a YOOGE donation to some vets, though some are saying they'd refuse the donations received from using them as a political pawn.

I agree that people should donate directly to the vets' organization, but then Donald wouldn't get to pound his chest and bloviate about his greatness.

I hear that, but Clinton. I hope they arrest her and she's in prison when the new prez is elected. But that's a dream cuz we all know people of power are above the law.
