So..., if I sell it for less than what I sell it to the public, how is it lying and/or stealing? And from whom?

    The 'as an aside' was merely to point out that we are criticizing someone that has a foundation that gave $2.9 million away.
    Happy New Year DG!

    I consider it lying when you intentionally tell someone something false. Stealing sounded good so I went with it. hahahahaha

That document also shows that the president’s son lied to the press about how his organization spent its money.

    The Eric Trump Foundation, which changed its name to Curetivity in May 2017, hosts an annual invitational at the Trump National Golf Club in Westchester County, New York, where the president’s son previously claimed the charity could use the course for free. “We get to use our assets 100% free of charge,” he told Forbes last year. The filing shows that the charity actually paid $99,000 to the golf club for goods and services it claims were worth $184,000.

    Another $13,000 went to Trump Golf Links Ferry Point, a nearby course that hosted additional golfers for the annual fundraiser, according to the document. Trump SoHo, where the charity had previously offered shuttles to attendees, got another $23,000. And the president’s Florida club Mar-a-Lago got another $11,000 for goods the charity claims were worth $47,000. The charity said the goods and services rendered were worth more than the amounts paid. Altogether, those payments add up to a total of $145,000 from Eric’s nonprofit charity to his family’s for-profit properties in 2016.

    $#@! the "press". See how the Fake News ignores the nearly $3,000,000 raised for St.Jude's, at MINIMAL OPERATING COSTS.

    Why? Because they don't know jack about anything...

    I hate it when you beat around the bush. Just say what you mean and stop trying to make me guess. :0p

    Do you not see that one lie leads to another and a small lie becomes a bigger lie?

    You make an excellent point. They raised so much for charity........so why lie?

    What am I making up? Also, if you can't be civil then move along. Maybe that's how you generally speak to women but that's not acceptable to me.

    Oh for heaven's sake! You did notice the word "lie" in the title of the article didn't you? That's the whole premise of the discussion. I didn't make it up - I'm reacting to it and commenting about it. Oh....never mind.
