REAL LEADER: Trump To Donate $1 MILLION To Harvey Victims!

on

We’ve come full circle from Pappy Trump’s “small loan” frequently criticized during election

season.  President Donald Trump will tap into his own personal funds and donate $1 million

to disaster relief efforts for Hurricane Harvey.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced the news on Thursday in a press briefing.  Moreover, Sanders asked the press for help in determining which groups or organizations would be a good choice.

From her statement:

…[President Trump] actually asked that I check with the folks in this room since you are very good at research and have been doing a lot of reporting into the groups and organizations that are best and most effective in helping and providing aid.

It’s been no secret since Trump took office how he feels about the press.  Terminologies such as “fake news” are slang that came straight from the administration.  Perhaps this is team effort is a symbolic move to show that we are united in this disaster.

President Trump faced a backlash from the press for his apparent “lack of empathy” for victims of Hurricane Harvey.  Ari Fleischer, the White House press secretary for former President George W. Bush, criticized Trump during his visit to Texas.  On Fox News, he said:

I was with President Bush when he went to see the devastation caused by fires in Missouri and in Arizona and tornadoes in Missouri.  There was something missing from what President Trump said […] that’s the empathy for the people who suffer.

Ironically, George W. Bush faced harsh criticism for his treatment and “lack of empathy” for Hurricane Katrina while in office.  It appears Fleischer is wearing rose colored glasses.

Let’s hope this gesture of goodwill will pay off.  In all honesty, I am quite sick of Trump and the media fighting like cats and dogs.  Perhaps out of this tragedy will come a step in the right direction.

    The Trumps are true Americans that care about our citizens. The obumbas and clintons are a true disgrace to our country.
