I wonder if anything will surface on a trump museum?

I know some people who claim part of their house as a tax write off. You can have part of your house as a museum if you follow some laws and do stuff like having tours, etc. I can't remember all the guide lines but it is actually fairly simple like posting somewhere visiting hours, etc. It can have exceptions like having to make a appointment. I remember his butler who retired continued to make money from giving those tours. It sounded like dipshit was only doing it for the butler. But I wonder how many and the percentage of his residences he claims as a museum. Then add how much he may claim as a business write off.

Now here comes my question. I think it could be legal for him to buy or pay for something like a ming dynasty vase with his foundation's money and donate it to his other "non-profit" museum. I'm I correct? End result it may be legal but I wonder if he has done it the donors to his foundation may not appreciate buying stuff for his house. Legal maybe but to me not ethical. Yes, this may not be a major campaign scandal for dipshit. But could show a trend about him and using other peoples money.
