Trump donated $150,000 to nonprofit that CNN’s Zucker’s wife was on board of

GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s foundation donated $150,000 to the nonprofit private school in Manhattan, Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School, reports BuzzFeed. But the report also notes that CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker’s wife Caryn Zucker was on the board of the nonprofit that Trump donated to, and BuzzFeed makes issue of the fact Zucker — more specifically, CNN — had not disclosed the donation on its airways.

The report notes that five months before Trump announced his candidacy, he and his wife, Melania, posed for a photograph with Caryn at the Upper West Side school’s annual benefit; that same day, Trump’s foundation donated $50,000 to the school.

CNN spokeswoman Allison Gollust declined to comment to BuzzFeed on the Zucker family’s relationship with Trump, but pointed out that Caryn Zucker is no longer on the school’s board.

Caryn Zucker declined to comment as well.

CNN has received much criticism for its coverage of Trump, and some see this as a potential bias for Zucker in favor of Trump. BuzzFeed further notes that in Trump’s books, Zucker refers to Trump as a “total dynamo.”
