Exactly one week ago, it was widely reported that Donald Trump was forgiving over $45 million in “loans” he made to his campaign, meaning that they would be converted to actual donations so that he could not be later reimbursed.
Well, that has actually NOT happened:
A week later, NBC News has learned the FEC has posted no record of Trump converting his loans to donations. The Trump Campaign has also declined requests to share the legal paperwork required to execute the transaction, though they suggest it has been submitted.
Last week, campaign spokesperson Hope Hicks said Trump was submitting formal paperwork forgiving the loan on Thursday, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Reached by NBC this week, she said the paperwork “will be filed with the next regularly scheduled FEC report,” and declined to provide any documentation.
Another #DonTheCon scam like Trump University? Or just a reality TV show?
