Eric Trump said Democrats are “not even people” during an appearance this week on Sean Hannity.
Eric complained that he has “never seen hatred like this” when referring to the Democratic Party as a whole. He claimed “they’re imploding” and “have no message.”
Continuing his verbal assault, Eric said the head of the Democratic National Committee “is a total whack job.”
Eric dehumanized Democrats, saying they are “not even people”. His problem with them is that they “try [to] obstruct a great man… his family” and “obstruct his family; they come after us viciously and it’s truly, truly horrible.”
But what is actually horrible is the Trump Organization who funneled more than $100,000 in donations meant for St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital.
Using Eric’s own charity (the Eric Trump Foundation), he hosted a golfing tournament at his father’s course where donations were passed to the Trump Organization and not their intended purpose.
Donors were told their contributions would go to help sick children, but the Trump family not only lied to attendees of the golf tournament, but took a shocking $500,000 over a 10 year period to line the pockets of Trump family members.
Donald Trump was personally behind the billing of the Eric Trump Foundation for the use of his golf course for these charitable events. Totals of revenue taken in were hundreds of thousands. In fact, a considerable amount of the $11 million Eric has allegedly raised for St. Jude’s hospital has been funneled directly to the Trump Organization.
Back in November of last year, Donald Trump admitted to self-dealing and using donation funds to help Trump out in business and personal interests.
According to a 2015 IRS tax return filed by the foundation’s attorneys, the boxes for questions regarding the transfer of “income or assets to a disqualified person” and engaging in self-dealing with foundation donations were both checked “YES”.
For example, the Donald J Trump Foundation gave a $25,000 donation to a SuperPAC supporting Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi.
In exchange for the cash, Bondi announced her office of attorney general for the state of Florida would not peruse a “multi-state case” against Trump University.
At the time of the bribe, when Trump tried to cover up the political contribution by recording that the donation was given to a charity in Kansas.
Bondi’s office had twenty-three complaints about Trump University filed before she became attorney general, and one more filed after she took office, but she did not open a “formal investigation”.
beyond the illegal donation, the Trump Foundation illegally purchased a $20,000 six foot tall portrait of Trump and spent $12,000 football helmet signed by Tim Tebow.
Journalist David Fahrenthold discovered that Children’s Place at Home Safe, a Florida charity, held a fundraiser at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago back in 2007, featuring Michael Israel, the painter of the six-foot-tall picture of Trump.
Israel was paid $10,000 for the painting by the Trump Foundation, the other $10,000 supposedly spent on the portrait cannot be accounted for.
The Trump Foundation is a close knit organization run by the three eldest children – Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric – and does not contain much of Trump’s own money.
The foundation survives on donations from other people such as Richard Ebers and Prestige Mills, Inc., NBC Universal, and World Wrestling Entertainment because Trump has not contributed to his own foundation since 2008.
In total Trump has given $2.7 million of his own money.
Giving away other people’s money is what the foundation does, and Donald takes credit for the donations even though the cash he gives originally belonged to someone else.
In 2010, Trump was praised for his “selfless support” of the Palm Beach Police Foundation, before the organization found out that he had been in New Jersey at a function for the Charles Evans Foundation – telling those in attendance that “he was raising money for the Palm Beach Police Foundation.”
One of the largest donations given by Trump Foundation was $100,000 to the Citizens United Foundation. Trump joined the president of that organization to his presidential campaign.
