Eric Trump calls father's critics 'not even people'

Today's Impeach-O-Meter: Trump Accused of Laundering Money Through Pediatric Cancer Charity

Writer Dan Alexander cited two sources claiming it was President Trump himself who directed the Trump Organization to charge Eric's group for use of property.

The increased costs for the tournament coincided with changes to the Foundation's board in 2010, when it changed from being made up of mostly Eric's personal friends to those closely connected with the financial interests of the Trump Organization, according to Forbes. Trump also seems to be under the false impression that his father is "great" for trying to take health care away from millions of people and withdrawing the US from a significant climate deal. According to Ian Gillule, who served as membership and marketing director at Trump National Westchester at the time, the elder Trump "had a cow" when he realized the Trump Organization wasn't milking the charity to recoup all its costs.

"If the report is true, the practices would violate both NY state law and federal law on self-dealing and misleading donors", the Hill reports.

A December 30, 2016 letter from St. Jude to Trump spells out $2.91 million the foundation donated in 2016, and almost another $700,000 'received through various fundraising initiatives and contributions from related sources'. "He was like 'We're donating all of this stuff, and there's no paper trail?"

Eric Trump wasted no time lashing out at critics on Twitter after his charity came under fire following the Forbes report on Tuesday. No credit?' And he went nuts.

LIGO detects gravitational waves for third time
Stuart Shapiro, who works on computer simulations of gravitational waves at the University of IL at Urbana-Champaign, agrees. The second detection was made in December 2015 , and the third detection, called GW170104, was made on January 4, 2017.

I've never seen hatred like this, and to me they're not even people.

A new report alleges the Trump Organization took profits from a charity golf event, despite claiming the use of the golf course was donated.

Or perhaps it was the widespread disgust, at least on social media, over the Trump sons seemingly attempting to profit from their father's presidency by opening a new chain of hotels, American Idea, in Republican-leaning states. "Neither could golf tournament experts or the former head golf professional at Trump National Westchester".

The Eric Trump Foundation's golf tournaments were advertised as benefitting children's cancer research at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Overall, he added, the foundation's efforts have yielded 'over $16.3 million dollars for the children of St. Jude in the past ten years'.

And as Forbes points out in its report, "Altruism as a business-development strategy isn't necessarily illegal". Fahrenthold, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his investigations into then-candidate Trump's philanthropy, asked Eric Trump in a July story about a 2014 tax filing that showed an $86,000 payment from his foundation to a Trump golf course.
