Last week — after intense pressure from the news media — Donald Trump made good on a promise he had made in January. He gave $1 million of his own money to a charity for veterans. (Trump called this reporter “a nasty guy” after I asked him whether my questions had prompted him to finally give the money.)
On Tuesday morning, the day after Memorial Day, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee has scheduled a news conference at Trump Tower in New York. He is expected to announce that he had made good on a separate promise to veterans, made at the same time as the $1 million pledge.
Now, he is giving away other people’s money.
In January, donors big and small had entrusted money to the Donald J. Trump Foundation, a charity he controls.
