On Monday, presidential candidate Donald Trump was pestered by reporters about a supposedly improper $25,000 contribution to a political group connected to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi in 2013. He dismissed the questions as irrelevant, continuing his conference. Though apparently, the donation may have violated federal rules prohibiting charities from donating funds to political candidates. This could put the Donald J. Trump Foundation in hot water, but Trump denies the allegations.
“I never spoke to her, first of all. She’s a fine person, beyond reproach. I never even spoke to her about it at all. She’s a fine person. Never spoken to her about it, never,” Trump said Monday in Ohio while on the campaign trail. “I never spoke to her.”
Trump then further responded about Bondi as a person: “I’ve just known Pam Bondi for years. I have a lot of respect for her. Never spoke to her about that at all. And just have a lot of respect for her as a person. And she has done an amazing job as the attorney general of Florida. She is very popular.”
The reason the liberals are harping on the matter is because Bondi at the time of the contribution was considering whether to open up a fraud investigation against Trump University, the controversial endeavor that the left media loves to attack Trump for. Trump University is at the center of several lawsuits by former customers as of now.
