    When asked in an interview Sunday whether he was confident he’d followed the law with regards to his personal charitable foundation, Donald Trump said that he “hoped so.”

    Media reports have found that Trump has used his charitable organization, The Donald J. Trump Foundation, for personal purchases and to pay off legal fees. Those actions may have been taken in violation of IRS laws, NBC News reports.

    The host of Sunday talk show "Full Measure," Sharyl Atkinson, asked the GOP presidential candidate directly if he was “confident that the Trump Foundation has followed all charitable rules and laws.”

    “Well, I hope so. I mean, my lawyers do it,” Trump said.
