White House press secretary Sarah Sanders addressed on Thursday the lawsuit that was filed by the New York attorney general against the president’s foundation.
“The foundation raised $18 million while giving $19 million to charity while virtually having zero expenses,” Sanders said.
“The previous New York A.G. who was forced to retire in disgrace made a stated mission to use this matter to advance his own political gain,” she continued. “And the current acting New York AG has stated that battling the white House is the most important job they’ve done. That sounds outrageously biased and certainly problematic and very concerning.” (RELATED: NEW YORK ATTORNEY GENERAL SUES TRUMP OVER HIS FOUNDATION)
The sleazy New York Democrats, and their now disgraced (and run out of town) A.G. Eric Schneiderman, are doing everything they can to sue me on a foundation that took in $18,800,000 and gave out to charity more money than it took in, $19,200,000. I won’t settle this case!…

President Trump tweeted about the lawsuit earlier on Thursday. The lawsuit alleges the misuse of funds by the president, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump.
