Trump promised millions to charity. The Washington Post found less than $10,000 over 7 years.
Trump promised millions to charity. The Washington Post found less than $10,000 over 7 years

In May, under pressure from the news media, Donald Trump made good on a pledge he made four months earlier: He gave $1 million to a nonprofit group helping veterans’ families.

Before that, however, when was the last time that Trump gave any of his own money to a charity?

If Trump stands by his promises, such donations should be occurring all the time. In the past 15 years, Trump has promised to donate earnings from a wide variety of his money-making enterprises: “The Apprentice.” Trump Vodka. Trump University. A book. Another book. If he honored all those pledges, Trump’s gifts to charity would have topped $8.5 million. But in that time, public records show, Trump donated about $2.8 million — less than a third of the pledged figure — through a foundation set up to give his money away. And there is no evidence that Trump has given to his foundation lately: The last record of any gift from him to his foundation was in 2008……….

Is anyone surprised? And this is but the tip of who Mr. Donald really is……….
And what his character and ethics are……..

Donald has had a really bad month………..all of his own making…..
He has had to walk back several of his outrageous election promises and may have to lower that fence on the Mexican border a couple of feet and admit we will have to pay for it rather than Mexico………..
GOP leaders will not answer question if he is qualified to be President……..
Everyday another prominent Republican says he/she is voting for HRC……..
Or will not support him………..
Lots of elected GOP officials will not be attending the Convention….
The “Dump Trump” seems to be making headway……..
Even delegates are announcing they will not attend the Convention rather than be forced to vote for Trump…….
Me thinks the Donald has been found out for

Yeah more dishonest propaganda. Even the far left journalists at NPR admitted that Trump had given 4 million $$ to veterans, and was planning to give more.

But it amazes me how liberals try to vilify conservatives for donating to charity! There is no credibility. I don't like Trump, but it never ceases to amaze me how dishonest and hateful the left wing movement is. Trump gave far more to charity this year than John Kerry did the year he ran for president, which was only a few thousand dollars, and his family was worth 2 billion dollars at the time! Did you hear anyone from the left(media included) who criticized Kerry for being cheap, or for being too wealthy and out of touch? Of course you didn't.....

How exactly is "not giving enough to charity" correlated to "screwing folks out of their money?"

I get it. You hate Trump. You hate him so much you devote an almost obsessive amount of time posting hate thread after hate thread after hate thread on a daily basis. Doesn't change the fact that people would rather have him as a president than crooked Hillary. In fact, petty threads like this are probably helping him.

Yea sure, SOME people want him to be president, short of 50%.
