Dissolve the Donald J. Trump Foundation
Current Status: FalteringAs of
"The Foundation has done enormous good works over the years in contributing millions of dollars to countless worthy groups, including supporting veterans, law enforcement officers and children... However, to avoid even the appearance of any conflict with my role as President I have decided to continue to pursue my strong interest in philanthropy in other ways."
- Trump statement, December 2016
In October 2016, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman directed the Donald J. Trump Foundation to stop taking donations, saying the foundation violated state law requiring charitable organizations that solicit outside donations to register with a state office. A spokeswoman for the attorney general's office said in December 2016 that Trump cannot shutter the foundation while the investigation is ongoing.
A year after his election and almost a year after he made his promise to dissolve the foundation nothing has apparently been done.
