Confusion on Donald Trump’s Vet Donation Website

Confusion on Donald Trump’s Vet Donation Website

Instead of attending the Fox News debate, Donald Trump has elected to join forces with CNN to telecast a charity event for veterans.

Raising funds to help support our veterans is a noble cause.

At first glance, the website looks rather simple. But there are a few things worth noting!

Check out the upper left-hand corner and you will notice the Donald J. Trump Foundation logo. Easy to dismiss since it is his foundation that set up the website. So… let’s do that. Let’s just dismiss that one.

However, take a good look at the bottom right-hand corner. You’ll find the standard notice that any 501(c)(3) foundation will put on a website.

It says, “The Donald J. Trump Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. An email confirmation with a summary of your donation will be sent to the email address provided above.

But, let’s stick with the website. Again. It’s a very simple site. So simple that all the money goes to the Donald J. Trump Foundation without disclosing up front what veteran organizations will receive any of the money. Weird, right?

And, what happens when the campaign is pushed on the issue? Trump’s spokesperson was asked that very question in an interview with CNN.

Watch and see how she points to the website to see where they will be sending it:
