WASHINGTON D,C, United States of America

US President Trump’s charitable foundation is to close amid claims he and his children misused its funds.

The daring decision to close the charity partly resolves a lawsuit brought by New York state attorney general Barbara Underwood, who claimed it was “little more than a cheque book to serve Mr Trump’s business and political interests”.

The lawsuit also seeks to recoup $2.8m from the Donald J. Trump Foundation and ban him and his three eldest children from leadership roles in any other New York charity.
