    White House walks back promise about Trump donating his ‘personal money’ to Harvey victims

    On Thursday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters that President Trump would donate $1 million of his “personal money” to Hurricane Harvey victims. But on Friday, she wasn’t so sure. Asked by a reporter if she knew whether Trump’s donation would be “coming from his own money or from the Trump Foundation,” Sanders dodged. “I haven’t had a chance to do that,” she said, suggesting she hadn’t yet had a chance to ask the president where the money would be coming from. During the campaign, reporting by the Washington Post’s David Fahrenthold and others demonstrated that Trump treated his foundation — which he hadn’t personally donated to since 2008 — like a personal expense

    If the money comes from the Trump foundation, it's still his own personal money.

    The Clinton Crime Family pays their family's wages with their foundation money, which is often blood money from overseas and from treasonous acts like selling uranium to the Russians, but your are fine with that.
    Quit whining, your going to dehydrate yourself.

    No foundation money is not personal money.
    Treat it as such and I'm sure the IRS would be very interested

    If the money is in the Trump Foundation, it's ultimately Trump's money and he is the end of the line benefactor of it.

    If your were to receive a million dollars, would you care where it came from? Hell, do you even care where your monthly check comes from, as long as it shows up each month?

    Trump should pull a wad of 100 dollar bills out of his right/front pocket and lay them out on the table and say "send this batch to Houston, they are really uncomfortable being in my pocket all day long."
    The Clinton Crime Family Foundation pays Chelsea millions of dollars for doing absolutely nothing. That should spark an IRS investigation.

    Trump needs to sick the IRS on the Clinton Crime Family Foundation. Every one of the Clintons would end up in shackles. And if any of the money has Chelsea's baby's name on it, lock the baby up also. Might as well get the baby locked up since it has the same potential of being a crook as the rest of those Clinton crooks.

    Ya, they bring up issues,(just pick one) in an attempt to destroy the Republicans, and it always backfires on them because they are as crooked as the day is long, and are guilty of the very issue that they are wanting to have investigated.

    You took time to pull up a few links Google Clinton foundation see what you come up with. This is a petty, jerk off thread that quotes a bad twisted story. Sanders said she would find out where the money was coming from she didn't walk anything back.
    And who cares where it comes from its going to help people in a desperate time. Unfortunately there are people fueled by hate that are looking for any little thing to trash this President. People that are asking where his donation is coming from should be asked if they have donated a nickel to the people suffering in Texas.

    That's a great point as far as where are these notable Democrats? It's a holiday weekend. The Congressman and woman will say they are focusing on their districts. And we know Soros likes to work behind the scenes.

    Since we mentioned Congress and money. I can't believe that in this day we have to wait for Congress to return from their recess to approve the 6 billion the President is asking for in immediate funds for Texas. I guess Congress never heard of Skype or goto meeting ? We really should have system in place for this.
