According to a tax filing, the Donald J. Trump Foundation made the donation to a U.S. nonprofit group that raises funds for the Beit El settlement’s seminary, a news organization affiliated with the settler movement and other activities in the settlement.

Trump’s pick for ambassador to Israel, lawyer David Friedman, is the nonprofit’s president.

Beit El founder Yaakov Katz revealed Trump’s donation to Israeli settler radio Sunday.

The U.S. considers West Bank settlements obstacles to peace. The Palestinians seek the territory, captured by Israel in 1967, for a state.

But an adviser to Trump has said Trump does not see settlements as an impediment to peace.

Trump’s transition team had no immediate comment.
