Donald Trump has been called all kinds of heinous names throughout his presidential campaign. Liberal media has done nothing but bash him in every single direction. What about all the good Trump has done? Well that seems to have gone completely unnoticed.
Liz Crokin, an award-winning author and seasoned journalist, has covered a myriad of articles about Trump for over a decade. She mentioned to never having heard any negative allegations towards him until he voiced he would be running for president. She recently wrote an article to shed light on the good that Donald Trump has done that has seemingly gone undocumented by mainstream media.
In this article she stated, "I was paid a lot of money to dig up dirt on celebrities like Trump for a living, so a scandalous story of the famous billionaire could've potentially sold a lot of magazines and would've been a 'huge' feather in my cap. Instead, I found that he doesn't drink alcohol or do drugs, he's a hard working businessman and totally devoted to his beloved wife and children. On top of that, he's one of the most generous celebrities in the world with a heart filled with more gold than his $100 million New York penthouse." She went on to say, "Since the media has failed so miserably at reporting the truth about Trump, I decided to put together some of the acts of kindness he's committed over three decades. These have gone virtually unnoticed or fallen on deaf ears."
Below are the highlighted some of the acts of kindness Trump has committed over the years:
- 1986: Trump prevented foreclosure of Annabell Hill's family farm after her husband passed away.
- 1988: A commercial airline refused to fly Andrew Ten, a sickly Orthodox Jewish boy with a rare illness, across the country to an appropriate doctor because he had to travel with a massive life support system. Trump sent his own plane to transport Ten so he could get appropriate treatment.
- 1991: 200 Marines patiently waited at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, to return home to their families. The Marines were told that there was a mistake and they would not be able to go home at the promised date. Trump sent his own personal plane to make two trips to bring the Marines back home to their families.
- 1995: A motorist stopped to aid Trump after his limo was stranded with a flat tire. Trump asked how he could repay the man and the man simply asked that Trump would send a bouquet of flowers to his wife. A couple of weeks after this incident, the man's wife received flowers with a note that read: "We've paid off your mortgage."
- 1996: Trump filed lawsuit against Palm Beach, Florida, accusing the town of discriminating against his Mar-a-Lago resort because it was open to Jews and African Americans.
- 2000: Maury Povich featured an eleven-year-old girl on his show, Megan, who struggled with Brittle Bone Disease. Trump happened to watch this episode and contacted Maury immediately after. He was so moved by the story that he gifted the little girl and her family with a generous check.
- 2008: When Jennifer Hudson's family members were tragically killed in Chicago, Trump put the actress and her family up in his Windy City hotel free of charge. He also sent some of his security to ensure Hudson and her family were safe during this difficult time in their lives.
- 2013: New York bus driver Darnell Barton saw a woman nearing the edge of a bridge and staring at traffic below as he drove by. He immediately stopped the bus and comforted the woman, and ultimately convincing her not to jump and end her life. When Trump heard of this story, he sent a check to Barton because he felt a good deed such as that deserved to be rewarded.
- 2014: Trump gifted $25,000 to Sgt. Andrew Tahmorressi after he spent seven months in a Mexico jail for accidentally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.
- 2016: Melissa Consin Young attended a Trump rally and was able to thank him for changing her life. She stood on stage as Miss Wisconsin USA in 2005. Years later, she was diagnosed with a terrible illness. During a period of her darkest times, she received a hand-written letter from Trump, telling her she's "the bravest woman I know." He also provided her with opportunities to provide her son with a full-ride to college.
Trump's generosity and kindness are not to be overlooked. He's touched the lives of so many individuals throughout his years, long before he ever considered running for president. When there's someone in need, he's willing to help at a moment's notice. America needs a leader who is willing to help the citizens of our country without expecting anything in return. That's the kind of leader for which America is longing.
