Anti-Defamation League Redirects Trump Donations

The Anti-Defamation League said it will redirect tens of thousands of dollars in donations from Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to anti-bullying and anti-bias efforts, Politico reports. 

Jonathan Greenblatt, chief executive of the Anti-Defamation League, said in a statement that Mr. Trump and his namesake foundation had donated $56,000 to the Jewish organization during the last decade. In light of the businessman's "penchant to slander minorities, slur refugees, dismiss First Amendment protections and cheer on violence," the money was being passed on to support anti-bias education programs, he said.
