The paper had the city controller's office search for the donation as part of a Freedom of Information Act request. 


"For the periods covered by the audits, we did not find any record of a donation from Trump himself or a Trump entity to either the Twin Towers Fund or the New York City Public/Private Initiatives Inc.," City Controller Scott Stringer's office told the Daily News in a statement.

According to the report, there is no evidence that either Trump personally or the Trump Foundation donated money to the two major 9/11 charities in the wake of the attacks. 

However, the City Controller's office said they could not definitively say the Trump did not donate to the charities, since their records on the two funds end in mid 2002.

The statement said that the officials are "unable to conclude definitively that Trump never gave to either of these two funds."

The Daily News reviewed all of the Trump Foundation's financial disclosures from 2001 to 2014 and found no sign of the donation, only a single $1,000 donation to a Tom Cruise-backed relief group using Scientology-approved methods to help workers. 
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a top Trump surrogate, has said Trump made donations anonymously.

Immediately following the deadly Sep. 11 attacks, Trump pledged to give $10,000 to the Twin Towers Fund.

In 2016 during his presidential campaign, the Trump Foundation donated $100,000 to the 9/11 museum.
