According to a report from the HuffPost, Donald Trump's daughter-in-law Lara Trump has been helping funnel donations made to a Florida dog rescue organization into the family's pockets with pricey fundraisers at the family's Mar-a-Lago resort.
The report states, "A dog rescue charity with links to Lara Trump has spent as much as $1.9 million at former President Donald Trump's properties over the last seven years and will drop an additional quarter-million at his Mar-a-Lago country club this weekend," before adding, "According to a permit filed with the town of Palm Beach, Florida, Big Dog Ranch Rescue estimates it will spend $225,000 at the club where Donald Trump has taken up full-time residence since leaving the White House. All the profit from that spending winds up in his pocket."
The report goes on to note the IRS shows the group has spent as much as $1,883,160 on fundraising costs at Mar-a-Lago and that "Lara Trump, the wife of Eric Trump, started being listed as a chairwoman for charity events in 2018."
That report had critics of the family fuming at the stunning amount of cash ending up in the pockets of the Trump family and not used for pet rescue, with many saying it's just another "grift" by the family.
