Why did Donald close his Trump Foundation?

Because he knew it could not stand up to the scrutiny of any investigation.

He gives up nothing, if money is involved, unless he is forced to.

The Trump Foundation, from what we have already learned, was nothing but a slush fund for Donald Trump. Reportedly, he paid off Pam Bondi, the AG of Florida, with $25,000 from the Trump Foundation.

No doubt, there were many others.

It's pretty obvious that he wants to put the Trump Foundation on the backburner and out of sight.

1. Maybe the legendary fabled audit is finished.

I cannot help but think we could have avoided Trump if Federal Law enforcement had done their job in decades past. Trump is a financial criminal as well as a financial disaster.

14. Capone got his tax evasion charges reversed posthumously.

It seems filing taxes would have violated Capones rights to self incrimination. So Trump can claim no federal taxes for decades because of a financial loss in the 90's. The suckers who voted for Trump did so for a crook who hides in plain sight.

3. You're right. Glad he had to close his "charitable" foundation.

I'm sure his team is working on a bunch of felonies, where he uses our U.S. gov, to make up for the lost revenue from his scam "charity''.

6. Right!

That is my understanding also. He cannot close the Foundation, which is under investigation by the NY AG, as much as he might want to.

7. Indeed

He can't close, nor dissolve, the foundation while under investigation.

Suck it up, Trump,

11. Easy

So he can keep his profitable conflicts but still have something to point to when people say he has conflicts.

It has the added benefit of not getting compared to Clinton.

12. He cannot close it while investigations are ungoing

Just because he decides it's over doesn't make it over.
First he decides the birther shit is over, then the Scamp University settlement, now this.
Groper Don is a Con.

15. I know why !!!

When I woke up this morning I turned on a radio I keep next to my bed to catch the news.
They played a clip from someone saying:

"President Trump is closing the Trump Foundation because he will be busy solving all of our domestic and foreign problems"

16. but he'll also use it to convince his cult

how ethical he is, and how he couldn't even allow the appearance of a conflict.

and they will believe him.

24. Misdirection. Trump Org is the real source of conflict.

By closing down the fake foundation (which he probably doesn't care about) he makes it look like he's doing something to address conflicts. But the real conflict is his and his kids' involvement in Trump Org. Don't be distracted!
