Besides donating every penny of his presidential salary President Trump has a long list of generosity. For this he gets called every name in the book, he's a monster, a racist, cruel, uncaring and the most dangerous man to hold office - any office. Yeah, he does say some impolitic things and even cringe worthy things, but he is not all those things his opponents and the news media says he is.
-In 1986, Trump helped stop the foreclosure of Annabel Hill’s family farm in Georgia. He contributed $39,000 toward the money she needed to pay off the mortgage.
-Two years later, Trump sent his personal jet to fly 3-year-old Andrew Ten across the country for critical medical care after commercial airlines refused to allow his life-support system on board.
In 2000, Trump gave a "generous” check to the family of a young girl named Megan, who was suffering from Brittle Bone Disease. He saw her on the Maury Povich show and was moved.
-Trump not only allowed actress Jennifer Hudson, who is black, and her family to stay free at his Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago after her mother and brother were murdered in 2008, he apparently increased security for them.
-Three years before winning the presidency, Trump gave a $10,000 check to bus driver Darnell Barton, who stopped a suicidal woman from jumping off an overpass in Buffalo.
-A year later, Trump wrote a $25,000 check to retired Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, who had been in a Mexican jail for seven months. While carrying loaded weapons, he had made a wrong turn on a California freeway that forced him into the Tijuana port of entry with no way to turn back. Trump sent the money to help Tahmooressi "get back on his feet.”
These examples, which have been independently verified, were first compiled along with others at Townhall by Liz Crokin. As an entertainment journalist, Crokin "had the opportunity to cover Trump for over a decade,” and in all of those years, she "never heard anything negative about the man until he announced he was running for president.”
And for this, current Democrat Presidential candidates weep and rail and gnash their teeth, acting as if billionaires are the worst sort of scum to ever walk this earth, and should be put to death slowly and painfully -- after having all their wealth extracted and turned over to the government to use as it sees fit, of course.
I have a number of ideas about that, but I'll let you all comment as you wish. But I'll just add this thought: I've worked for a number of people who've owned companies, and not one of them was poor.

I remember the story of Rush Limbaugh and the waitress. Limbaugh used to go into this restaurant and was waited on by the same waitress. He would engage her in conversation and she eventually opened up. She was trying to go back to school and had a child to support. Limbaugh quietly left her a tip - somewhere around four thousand dollars.
The ungrateful bitch was a Democrat (but I repeat myself) and she made a big deal of donating the money to Planned Parenthood, calling it "blood money".
Who is the good person in this story?
