Trump's charity violated New York law, attorney general says

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's private foundation violated New York laws by not properly registering as a charity with the state, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said Monday.

The state sent a letter to Trump's foundation ordering it to stop soliciting contributions because it was doing so without having registered with the state's Charities Bureau or providing annual financial statements.

Trump's charity has come under media scrutiny, with questions raised about his personal contributions and whether he improperly benefited from its charitable work.
