Presidential Candidate Donald Trump Accused of Welching on 1 Million Dollar Bet, Then Paying Winner with His Charity Funds

This is like scene from a bad movie as more evidence of Donald Trump’s unethical and illegal business practices has come to light according to a recent Daily News story where they are reporting that Trump reneged a 1 million dollar bet during a golf game where the winner sunk a hole-one shot. Everything was great until the man tried to collect his winnings.

Donald Trump once refused to pay a winner of a hole-in-one contest $1 million during a 2010 golf tournament, prompting the competition’s angry winner to sue the mogul, recently unearthed documents from the lawsuit show.
And when the GOP nominee finally settled the suit for $158,000, he did so with money from his charitable foundation, which is illegal.
The claims add to mounting allegations surrounding Trump’s ethics as a business person as well as the legal and ethical questions surrounding his charity, the Donald J. Trump Foundation.

The country club legal calamity arose in August 2010, after Martin Greenberg hit a hole-in-one on the 13th hole while playing in a for-charity tournament at the Trump National Golf Club, Westchester, in Briarcliff Manor, N.Y.

“Clearly the Trump Foundation is as much a charitable organization as Trump University is an institute of higher education,” the Hillary Clinton campaign said in a statement. “Once again, Trump has proven himself a fraud who believes the rules don’t apply to him.”
“Trump cannot be trusted with his own charity, but we are supposed to believe he can manage the nation’s treasury?” Senator Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) tweeted.

If this is not more reason for Donald Trump to release his tax returns then nothing is. Why would a purported billionaire not want to release his tax returns if there is nothing to hide? Donald Trump needs a presidential win because that essentially would make his troubles go away. More is at stake than a loss of the presidency.
We recently spoke with former presidential candidate Reverend Al Sharpton at the Triumph Awards and asked him “Would Barack Obama be in the White House if he failed to show his tax returns? Sharpton was quick to respond: “Not only he would not have been elected President but had to release his own tax returns when he ran for president in 2004.
