Report: Donald Trump's donations haven't come out of his own pocket

Donald Trump has long talked about his personal donations to charity, but a new analysis found that a 93-page list of contributions released by his campaign showed none of the donations was from the GOP presidential candidate's own money.

The Washington Post reviewed the list, which found $6.4 million of the listed gifts were free rounds of golf at his golf courses or other gifts from his hotels and the Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida. The report said the list shows Trump claimed credit for at least 2,900 rounds of golf, 175 free hotel stays, 165 free meals and 11 gift certificates to spas.

According to the analysis, many of the gifts were directly from the Donald Trump Foundation, but not Trump himself. The foundation, the report said, hadn't received a check from Trump between 2009 and 2014.

The contribution list also showed that Trump donated $26.1 million in land to New York state and $7 million were other gifts from the foundation.

Allen Weisselberg, the chief financial officer at the Trump Organization, acknowledged to the Post that none of the gifts came from the billionaire himself, but he also claimed that Trump has made donations using his own money, but refused to provide any documentation.
