DONALD TRUMP has proposed a major overhaul of the U.S. government to reduce waste and make it easier to donate to charities.
The Republican nominee for president said the change would give the country more money to give to worthy causes.
The proposal would require agencies to collect donations for their own purposes and require charities to disclose who’s getting the money.
It would also require charities with more than $10 million in assets to file annual reports.
The proposal comes as President-elect Donald Trump is under fire for allegedly lying about receiving $5 million from a Russian-linked billionaire in 2015, which could impact how charities are able to receive donations.
A Trump transition spokesman said that Trump did not receive any donations from the Russian billionaire in his capacity as the chairman of the Republican National Committee.
He said Trump did receive donations from other people and that he did not think he was in violation of the law.
This is the first time that the federal government has put out any sort of transparency on donations, and this is going to put a lot of pressure on all the organizations,” said Michael Taylor, a former Obama administration official who is now a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution.
In an interview with the Financial Times on Wednesday, Trump said that the president-elect had raised about $25 billion in the first six months of his administration, but that that figure was inflated by the fact that he was running a presidential campaign.
Trump’s office has said that he has donated about $30 million in his campaign to various charities, and he told the newspaper he had donated millions more to charity in the past, including $6 million to the Children’s Defense Fund, which helps kids with cancer.
As part of the initiative, charities are expected to be able to give up to $10,000 per donation to charities that have more than 100 employees. “
The Trump administration is committed to making this an even more rewarding, and meaningful, way to support the American people, and we’re already committed to increasing charitable giving by $1 trillion over the next 10 years,” White House deputy press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement.
As part of the initiative, charities are expected to be able to give up to $10,000 per donation to charities that have more than 100 employees.
They can also give more than that if the organizations have an annual revenue of at least $100 million.
