Donald Trump Will Donate $1 Million to Hurricane Harvey Relief

President Donald Trump is reportedly donating $1 million in personal funds to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made the announcement at a press conference on Thursday (August 31).

“He would like to join in the efforts that a lot of the people we’ve seen across this country do, and he’s pledging $1 million of personal money to the fund,” she said.

“He’s actually asked that I check with the folks in this room, since you’re very good at researching and have been doing a lot of reporting into the groups and organizations that are best and most effective in helping,” she added. “And I will take those, if any of you have them.”

Celebrities like J. J. Watt, Drake, Miley Cyrus, Ellen DeGeneres, Leonardo DiCaprio, and more have also contributed to help those affected by the devastation that occurred from torrential rain, winds, and flooding.

    If he gives it, he’ll remind us every chance he get that he did it.

    and when he doesn’t, he’ll still claim he did and tack on that he gave more than any other president ever blah blah blah blah and he’ll never shut up about it. its a blatant attempt to change the optics because pardoning Sheriff Joe (and then saying he did so during a national emergency because of ratings) and saying that it was great to see a big turn out in the middle of an emergency didn’t exactly play as well as his people hoped

    And yet every celeb has done that on social media. All these people are the same have all have narcissistic tendencies. I think it’s tacky personally. If you want to give them give. I get the media would call out those who didn’t give but I think that’s equally as tacky.

    1 million while trying to take away health care, increase military spending while repealing DACA and defunding FEMA. Useless SOB.
