Donald Trump: Until Today, He Gave Only $21,000 to Veterans Groups in Last Three Years


Until this mishegos today with a press conference and buffoonery, Donald Trump was not a supporter of veterans groups.

As I wrote several times this winter: in the last three years, Trump donated only twenty one thousand dollars to vet groups.

Only in the last few months with his presidential run did Trump come up with this scheme to raise $5.6 million for vets. And today he finally had to give details.

Until today, most of the money for the Trump Foundation came from a ticket scalper.

He slashed his charitable giving in 2014.

Read the stories. These are facts based on numbers supplied by the Trump Foundation.
