White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced Thursday that President Trump will be donating one million dollars of his own personal money to to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
The specific charities and organizations to benefit from these funds were not mentioned, however Sanders asked the press corps for ideas on where to give.
“He would love some suggestions from the folks here and I would be happy to take them,” the press secretary stated. Previously, the president has mentioned that he would not be taking a salary, and has thus far donated the entirety of his first and second quarter salaries.
Leftists and Democrats have been constantly suggesting that President Trump has been doing nothing at all to help Texas in their time of need, even though he has. This YUGE donation hasn’t stopped them, as well as the mainstream media, from suggesting that this donation is meaningless and doesn’t do enough.
A $1M donation from Trump, who claims net worth of $10B, is equivalent to a $100 donation from someone with a net worth of $1M. https://t.co/k9KCElPxqS
