Veterans charity will donate funds from its Trump fund to hospitals across the US.
The charity, which is part of Trump’s American Veterans Advisory Council, has been paying for the construction of facilities across the country to meet demand for medical services and rehabilitation services for military veterans.
The funds will be used to help pay for rehabilitation of veterans in facilities that have not yet been established and are in need of urgent repairs.
Trump, who was sworn in as the 44th president of the United States on Friday, has faced criticism over his treatment of veterans, including allegations that he inappropriately touched them and that he mistreated them.
Trump has been dogged by criticism of his treatment by a range of US political leaders, including Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, and the Democratic National Committee.
The US president, who will leave office on January 20, has not yet commented on the allegations, but his former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said that Trump had never touched veterans.
In a statement on Friday evening, the charity said it had a long history of helping veterans and their families.
“The Trump Foundation has worked with hundreds of military families, many of whom have suffered significant trauma and mental health issues,” the statement read.
“Our support is an important step towards helping these families.
The Trump Foundation will continue to be a vital source of support to these families through this transition.”
Trump’s White House did not respond to requests for comment.
