Donald Trump Gave Less Than $10,000 to Charity Over 7 Years.

If we do not vote, this man, Donald Trump, may become our president. His lying, cheap behind claimed in the past 15 years, he’s made a variety of charitable donations—about $8.5 million. According to the Washington Post, that is a major exaggeration: he’s only given $2.8 million to his foundation in that time period, and hasn’t donated a cent to it since 2008.

The Post dug through financial recordsof charitable organizations connected to Trump going back to the 1980s to see if they were missing something. Among a general lack of evidence of promised donations, they found that he gave less money to AIDS and multiple sclerosis charities (which he promised to support with the proceeds of his first book) than he did to Ivanka Trump’s ballet school.

The Post contacted 167 charities searching for evidence of personal gifts from Trump in the period between 2008 and this May. The Post sought out charities that had some link to Trump, either because he had given them his foundation’s money, appeared at their charity galas or praised them publicly.

The search turned up just one donation in that period—a 2009 gift of between $5,000 and $9,999 to the Police Athletic League of New York City.

A previous Post report found that, of the 4,844 charitable contributions he claimed to have made in the past five years, not a single one was a gift of Trump’s own money. Many were free rounds of golf at his own golf courses.

All of this evidence is building, inexorably, to the revelation that Trump has much less money than he claims, and instead lives in a very high tower built from gold-plated styrofoam Jenga pieces.
