WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump accused New York state’s attorney general of mischaracterizing a settlement reached on Thursday in which his charitable foundation will pay $2 million for misusing funds to help his 2016 presidential campaign.

“The New York Attorney General is deliberately mischaracterizing this settlement for political purposes,” Trump said in a statement posted on Twitter.
