The White House says President Donald Trump is pledging $1 million in personal funds to Harvey storm relief efforts.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made the announcement at a briefing Thursday.
And she says he’s calling on reporters to help decide which specific organization he will give to.
Trump has been criticized in the past for giving far less of his income to charitable causes than many other multi-billionaires.
Harvey’s flood waters have heavily damaged tens of thousands of homes across Texas and killed at least 30 people. The storm is now threatening the region near the Texas-Louisiana state line.
On top of not taking a pay check!
Let Obama supporters top that one.
That’s not near enough, it’s proof that Trump hates every one.
Signed; Liberal assholes of America
I’m sure the democrats will call this “Vote Buying”.
The left will claim it’s inadequate, wait for it.
Update on Clinton and Obama donations: insert cricket sounds here.
Oh, but he is selling hats, that were made in China, that say USA just to make money from Harvey. It says so on Yahoo news!
This means that he has too much money for a white man!! Impeach!!
How much did Soros give?
Wow, that’s a horrible stunt. Just give the million dollars. Why advertise it? Shameful if you ask me. Now that the dollar is worth 15% less than when he took office. Horrible economy we live in.
The media will recommend socialist, Social Justice, Antifa or BLM as entities to receive Trump’s donation.
I just love this man.
How much has the traitor obama given?
NOTHING OF COURSE
Good Lord…We have Maxine Waters in da House !!!! Hey Maxine !!!
(Throw out the linens , towels, and Placemats)
@Charles Clarke, Obama will have a fourth rewrite of his outsourced second edition version three autobiography because of this. It’s far from horrible what Trump has done.
Don’t ask the press! They will recommend Linda Sarsour’s organization.
President Trump: 1000000.00
Clintons: used underwear
How dare him?! Resist!
@bcattin, that ain’t the real Maxine. The real one would say “inpeash!”
Obama would have donated a tweet not of his own words.
I bet the Left will say it’s ill gotten money that he’s trying to hide.
Val, I hear Ya !
I look forward to the day when We have “Maxine Waters in Hell” posting…
“Trump has been criticized in the past for giving far less of his income to charitable causes than many other multi-billionaires.”
A completely unnecessary and irrelevant, but expected, barb by the biased AP.
He puts up his own money, the Left: “He doesn’t show enough empathy”
Only a million times more than most Liberals
We have a real President!!!!
Still can’t believe it! Still like Christmas every day.
Thank you, Lord.
Everyone, keep praying for Mr. Trump and our country.
To begin, PDJT normally does not announce donations to charity–shows exactly how much the self-righteous assaholic press know about him.
Secondly, the figure of one million probably came about because several celebrities are donating that amount and to get the press to ‘shut up’ (good luck with that!) BUT…I would wager PDJT is actually donating a LARGER amount–he is ‘private’ that way!!!
Accusations of vote-buying begin in 3…2…1…
“Trump doesn’t really mean it!”
This should be structured like the matching pledges on PBS –based on how much each reporter is donating. Oh, and is this amount more or less than Hillary and/or her Clinton Foundation is donating?
I went to read more on Oregonlive.com. Sure enough, all the predictions on here about how the left would react, are spot-on. DJT probably is getting his monies worth just trolling these idiots.
They’ll project that the Million is coming in from the profits from his online hat sales that he sold because of his Texas trip.
Tony R, would love to read some of those comments. Could you provide a link?
I went to Oregon.com and couldn’t find the article on his donation. I searched “Trump donation” there and got a few hit pieces on Trump.
Obama donates a signed photo of himself
Hillary donates her books that she can’t sell, takes a inflated deduction and gets arrested for tax fraud. (I can dream, OK)
Huff poo claims DT’s check bounced
NY compost claims DT took funds for donation from presidential slush fund
Fuckisberg announces he will donate nothing to those “Despicables” in Houston.
carry on folks,
