The Donald J. Trump Foundation is using a partnership with the state of Delaware to build the largest casino in the United States, and will be one of the largest casinos in the world, a new report from the Center for Responsive Politics said.
The report found that the Donald J, Jr. Foundation, which is the main backer of the project, will have a $30 billion endowment by 2027, up from $12 billion in 2021.
The foundation has pledged $10 billion toward the project.
The Delaware government has committed more than $1 billion toward construction of the casino.
Trump’s charitable foundation also is donating $100 million to the project and $150 million to local government officials.
The Trump-owned company plans to spend an additional $200 million to buy out Delaware’s remaining share of the land, according to the report.
The $1.3 billion project will be a major undertaking.
The casino will be the second-largest in the U.S., behind the Trump Taj Mahal, and is expected to bring in millions of dollars a year.
The land is about the size of about 1,000 football fields, and it will have an indoor and outdoor casino, restaurants and retail, according the report from The Center for Progressive Reform.
“This is the largest land investment in American history,” said Matt O’Brien, an attorney who is representing the project in the lawsuit.
The project is being built in the northern portion of the state, close to the Canadian border.
The site, on Delaware’s Atlantic Coast, is a natural beauty.
The surrounding countryside will provide plenty of wildlife habitat.
The area has been designated a “special place of conservation” and has received some federal protections for decades.
The state of New Jersey also approved the project last year.
According to the Center’s report, Trump’s foundation had an investment of $10 million in the project from October 2015 to February 2019.
That money will go toward land acquisition, land design, engineering, construction and other costs, and $15 million in charitable contributions.
The property will also have a casino-style slot machines, restaurants, a spa and an outdoor bar, according a press release from the Trump Foundation.
The resort will include a “wonderfully themed” hotel, with a water park, golf course and a shopping center, according another press release.
The development will bring more than 1,500 hotel rooms, and 2,000 parking spaces, according, to the press release, which also noted that “Trump has pledged to create 500 jobs at the resort.”
In addition, Trump has pledged a $200,000 gift to the state.
Trump said in a press conference last year that the casino will “bring much-needed revenue to the region, which has been suffering for a long time.”
He said he was proud of his philanthropic work.
The Donald Trump Foundation has contributed at least $1 million to political campaigns in Delaware since 2014.
The organization, which supports Trump’s businesses, has also supported a variety of other political candidates.
The Center’s press release said the casino’s opening date is not yet determined.
It is unclear how much of the $1-billion deal will go to the Trump family or the Trump Organization, though Trump told reporters last year the casino would be open to the public.
The Las Vegas Sands Corp., which is a subsidiary of the Trump-linked Trump Organization of Las Vegas, has already announced it will build a casino in downtown Las Vegas.
The new casino, which will include $2 billion in investment, is expected in 2019.
The announcement comes as Nevada is grappling with an ongoing opioid epidemic, and a growing number of people have died and injured in the state in the past few years.
In June, Trump Jr. announced plans to invest $1,000 million in a new casino to house the Las Vegas Strip and the Nevada State Fair, a massive event that draws tens of millions of people a year in attendance.
The Republican presidential candidate has been criticized by Democratic leaders, including President Barack Obama, for his role in supporting the casino in Las Vegas as a way to generate income.
The proposal was criticized by some Republican governors, including Ohio Gov.
John Kasich, who said the project would threaten jobs and tax revenue.
