Many times Donald Trump has stepped forward and anonymously helped those in need. Rudy Giuliani testified to this fact at the Republican Convention, where he broke his promise to keep Trump’s many private generous acts a secret, and I remember watching a lovely woman come forth at a Trump rally in NC to testify to his unbidden generosity to her family decades earlier.
Trump’s response to her gushing gratitude was humble, indeed: “So I paid her mortgage. Big deal,” he said…with a dismissive wave of the hand.
I’m reminded of Jesus’ admonition on the proper way to make donations, in Matthew 6:2: “So when you give to the needy, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be praised by men. Truly I tell you, they already have their reward. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,…”
So, with this in mind, I ask this question: does anyone know if Donald J. Trump personally donated the semi-trailer full of supplies he was spotted unloading in Louisiana?
