Trump: The Least Charitable Billionaire

From The Smoking Gun:

A TSG review of the group’s Internal Revenue Service returns dating back to 1990 reveals that Trump, the foundation’s president, may be the least charitable billionaire in the United States.

How miserly is The Donald?

From 1990 through 2009, Trump has personally donated a total of just $3.7 million to his foundation, which was incorporated in 1987. In fact, the billionaire is not even the largest contributor to his own charitable organization.

Tax returns show that World Wrestling Entertainment has given Trump’s foundation a total of $5 million in return for the developer’s assistance in working a couple of televised angles along with WWE boss Vince McMahon. The WWE gave Trump’s foundation $4 million in 2007 for his help in promoting that year’s WrestleMania festivities, and another $1 million in 2009, when Trump (pictured below with McMahon) pretended to purchase part of the WWE empire.

  1. Trumpies problem is he is NOT a billionaire. He scrapes by on a few million, much much less than the pretends to have. Like everything else about his persona he is a giant phony.

    On the other hand, he appears closer to normal than most of the field. This might work to his advantage. And given how weak BHO is he may be easier to beat than we think. The disaster we currently have would look like nirvana compared to what will happen if one of the pasty trolls (Trump, Pawlenty, Huckelberry) actually wins.
