Trump Lied About Post-9/11 Funds

Donald Trump claimed that he took $150,000 after 9/11 to be used in recovery efforts but a new report from the New York Daily News confirms that his account is not true. Records from the Empire State Development Corp. show that Trump requested the money for “rent loss,” “cleanup” and “repair” and not to recuperate money lost in helping people. The program was initiated to help businesses recover, not to reimburse people for charitable work.
