An analysis of Donald Trump‘s charitable donations found that though the leading Republican presidential candidate claims he’s a generous giver, most of his gifts came in the form of free rounds of golf.
Trump has said he completed over 4,000 personal charitable transactions in the past five years, according to a list provided to the Washington Post and the Associated Press. Out of those transactions, 2,900 are believed to be free rounds of golf, 175 are free hotel stays, 165 are meals, and 11 are spa certificates, according to a Post analysis. The freebies, however, only appear to account for about $6.4 million of the $102 million in personal funds Trump claims to have donated.
The Post analysis found that some of the most expensive transactions Trump claimed were legal land agreements in which the real estate mogul agreed to not engage in certain types of development. But although in one case he built housing on the agreed upon land, it was turned into a driving range and Trump continued making money off of the property.
Trump also claims to have given $7 million through his foundation, but according to an analysis of the Donald J. Trump Foundation’s public filings the largest donors to the foundation were not Trump. The findings fly in the face of claims the presidential candidate has made about his givings.
