Earlier this week, The Washington Post wrote about five donations that Donald Trump's foundation had reported giving to charities — but the charities in question never received.
Now, that list is down to four.
On Tuesday, one of the groups — the Latino Commission on AIDS — told The Post it had rechecked its files and found the Trump Foundation's gift after all. The gift was for $10,000, in 2012.
"We confirmed [it] today," Guillermo Chacon, the group's president, said in a phone interview.
Trump had promised the gift during a taping of "The Celebrity Apprentice," when contestant Dayana Mendoza — a former Miss Universe — had chosen the Latino Commission on AIDS to receive her winnings. At one moment, Trump promised $10,000 each to the charities of six contestants, including Mendoza.
The other five charities all received donations from the Trump Foundation, a nonprofit which is largely filled with money from other donors. Trump himself has not given the Trump Foundation a donation since 2008, according to tax records.
This summer, the Latino Commission on AIDS told The Post that it had no record of a gift from Trump or his foundation.
Chacon said a junior staffer had simply missed the gift during that first search, which was made more difficult because the records were a few years old. On Tuesday, after The Post highlighted this gift as one of five that appeared to be listed in error, he said he asked a senior staffer to look again. She found it.
The earlier posting about the Trump Foundation's missing donations has been updated.
Of the remaining four missing donations, the Trump campaign has explained one as an accounting error. In the other three cases, the Trump campaign has not responded to The Post's questions seeking explanations.
