Trump says Trump Foundation lawsuit is “ridiculous”


Donald Trump and his family cutting the ribbon outside the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC in October 2016. Trump and his three eldest children — Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric — have been named in a lawsuit over the activities of the Trump Foundation.

The New York state attorney general filed a lawsuit against Trump and his three eldest children alleging a “pattern of persistent illegal conduct, occurring over more than a decade.”

President Donald Trump hit back at the New York state attorney general’s lawsuit against his family’s charity on Thursday, in a pair of tweets calling the case “ridiculous” and saying he won’t settle.

“The sleazy New York Democrats, and their now disgraced (and run out of town) A.G. Eric Schneiderman, are doing everything they can to sue me on a foundation that took in $18,800,000 and gave out to charity more money than it took in, $19,200,000. I won’t settle this case!” Trump tweeted. “Schneiderman, who ran the Clinton campaign in New York, never had the guts to bring this ridiculous case, which lingered in their office for almost 2 years. Now he resigned his office in disgrace, and his disciples brought it when we would not settle.”
