President Trump's private generosity

October 20, 2017

While the media are desperately trying to paint President Trump as an unfeeling lout over his personal condolence calls to the parents of fallen soldiers, one Gold Star dad revealed that Trump not only called him, but when he found out the man was destitute, he told him he was sending him a personal check for $25,000. It was something Trump did privately and never publicized.

The media reaction to the news of Trump’s private generosity? The Washington Post claimed that he never really sent the check. White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters fired back in a statement, “The check has been sent. It's disgusting that the media is taking something that should be recognized as a generous and sincere gesture, made privately by the President, and using it to advance the media's biased agenda.”

If Barack Obama had ever done such a thing, do you think the reaction would have been scorn and skepticism? I’m guessing they would’ve invented a new Nobel Prize for Generosity just to award it to him.

    I don't watch or listen to mail-line news any more It makes me angry and I do not want to support their agenda in any way. So, I depend on your newsletters to keep me up on the REAL news. I want you to know I appreciate so much your conservative reporting. I especially appreciate your stand for our fine President. There are a lot more of us out here than you or he may think because the minority is causing all the fuss. I have not been swayed in the least by the media and will not be voting differently in the next election.

    I have always appreciated your conservative views and sane, common sense reasoning on many issues .I was a teenager in the mid sixties and experienced and lived through a very turbulent time in our country. But compared to whats going on now, those times were mild. Thank God for people like you who give our conservative voice a platform from which to fight back this liberal and progressive madness that seems to be rampant and consuming our country today. I fear for my grandchildren and pray to God it is not to late to turn our country around.
    Thank you Governor

    Thank you for speaking the truth. The liberal media is destroying this nation and causing unnecessary grief. The same has happened with the aid to PR. Unfortunately, when there is a crisis fake news and desk journalists think that they can be resolved overnight. They demonstrate their ignorance. Thank you, governor.
