Trump Foundation to Support Siouxland Soldiers during a campaign event at the Orpheum Theater in Sioux City, Iowa in January 2016, during Trump’s run for president. New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood filed a lawsuit accusing Trump of illegally using his charitable foundation to pay legal settlements related to his golf clubs and to bolster his presidential campaign with foundation disbursements such as this one in Iowa.
