Stringer: Trump May Not Have Given To 9/11 Charities To Which He Pledged To Donate

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer said Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may not have given money to 9/11 charities despite pledging to do so.

As WCBS 880’s Rich Lamb reported, Stringer said his office investigated the Twin Towers Fund and New York City Public/Private Initiatives Inc., after getting freedom of information requests from newspapers.

“We responded to those requests and found that after reviewing pages and pages of documents, we could find no evidence that Mr. Trump ever gave any money to these funds,” Stringer said. “There were 1,500 donor records containing the names of more than 110,000 individuals, and Mr. Trump’s name was not among them.”

Stringer, a reporter of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, said he personally finds it disturbing that money was promised and apparently not given.
