A New York Judge, Saliann Scarpulla. has ordered US President Donald Trump to pay two million dollars for misusing funds from his charity to finance his 2016 political campaign.
The Donald J. Trump Foundation closed down in 2018, after prosecutors accused it of working as little more than a chequebook for Mr Trump’s interests.
The Judge ruled that Charities such as the one Mr Trump and his three eldest children headed cannot engage in politics.
She said the money must be paid by Mr Trump himself adding that the money should go to eight charities Mr Trump has no relationship to.
New York Attorney General Letitia James insists Donald Trump Jr, Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump, who were also directors of the Trump Foundation, are required to undergo mandatory training on the duties of officers and directors of charities.
The payment is the final resolution of a case brought by state prosecutors.
