As the Presidential motorcade was making its way back to Mar-a-Lago, President Trump noticed a group of supporters who lined the streets to show their support.
They passed by… until 20 minutes later when two white vans approached and a representative of Trump’s emerged… to invite them to spend time with the President.
“It stunned me,” Mike Sims told the Post. “I didn’t know what to think.”
The 16 supporters were given a 90-minute visit and photo-op with the President.
“He couldn’t have been more down to earth,” Mary Tulko explained. “He was just really nice.”
Donald Tarca Jr. told Fox News’s “Fox & Friends”:
“I was honored that the president, the most powerful man in the world, noticed us and invited us back. It was mind-blowing, and it is a day that this ‘deplorable’ will never forget, that we the people do matter.”
“We the people do matter,” Tarca declared.
Our President has always enjoyed meeting fans and supporters and has long been known for his generous nature.
“Mr. Trump is generous both with his money and with his time,” Jason Miller, his campaign spokesperson, said, in a statement reacting to the latest Washington Post reporting on Trump’s charitable foundation. “He has provided millions of dollars to fund his Foundation and a multitude of other charitable causes.”
How many “millions of dollars”? People around Trump have answered that question in a number of ways. A couple of weeks ago, Mike Pence, Trump’s running mate, said that anyone “who knows about Donald Trump and his career knows that this is a man who’s given away tens of millions of dollars to charitable causes throughout his business life.” In July, Trump’s son Eric said his father had given away “millions and millions and millions of dollars.” Last year, on the same day that Trump officially launched his Presidential bid, his campaign provided a specific number: a “summary of net worth” document made public that day stated that Trump had given away $102 million between 2009 and 2014.
That’s truly just the tip of the iceberg for the man we elected to run our country.
