Scoop: Trump alumni launch largest post-administration group

A constellation of Trump administration stars today will launch the America First Policy Institute, a 40-person nonprofit group with a first-year budget of $20 million, and the mission of perpetuating former President Trump's populist policies.

Why it matters: Two top Trump alumni tell me AFPI is by far the largest pro-Trump outside group, besides Trump's own Florida-based machine.

In coming months, the group plans to take a large office space near the U.S. Capitol as a symbol that it'll fight to be a muscular, well-heeled center of the future of conservatism.

I'm told that Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump are informal advisers.

2. They'll Have to Be Carefully Watched...

Who’s behind this? Where’s the money 💵 coming from?

3. The words "Trump" and "non-profit" are mutually exclusive.

They don't belong in the same sentence because EVERYTHING associated with that saggy-assed, grifting, sonofabitch is all about separating the rubes from their money.

5. Office space to control GOP narrative and refit Trump2024 for Ivanka

They’ll use it as rehab for her image, too.

7. No.

https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2019/oct/24/facebook-posts/trump-family-disallowed-operating-charities-new-yo/


A Facebook post said, "The Trump family was disallowed from operating any charity in the State of New York because they stole from a kids cancer charity."

A lawsuit does seek to temporarily ban Donald Trump and his three eldest children from being part of charities in New York. But that case is still pending.


We rate the post False.
