Donald Trump said he gave money to a 9/11 fund. A new audit says he didn't.


An audit by the New York City Comptroller's office found that Donald Trump did not donate to 9/11 charities despite saying he would.

The comptroller's office reviewed around 1,500 pages of documents with over 110,000 donors listed for the year immediately following the September 11th terrorist attacks.

Comptroller Scott Stringer even went so far as to tweet the report out. 

...We didn't find evidence that he contributed a single cent to the victims, our first responders, and to our city through the Twin Towers Fund,
Scott Stringer, NYC Comptroller

Stringer, a Democrat, told ABC News it would be "plain wrong" if Trump said he'd offer support and then didn't. 

Some on Twitter are less than happy with the revelation that Trump didn't donate to the fund.

Trump's claims of charitable giving are already under intense scrutiny.

Trump's campaign has not commented on these newest findings from the comptroller's office.
