Homeless veterans shelter Veterans-in-Command reportedly received a very different sort of gift from the Trump camp than was expected when they initially reached out to the mogul for a donation for their cause. Instead of money – which Trump has plenty of – the group received a bumper sticker: “Trump – Make America Great Again,” according to the New York Daily News.
The Daily Beast reports:
According to Veterans-in-Command President Larry Robertson, the group sent off a request to native son Trump over a year ago asking for a donation for the cash-strapped organization that deals with assisting homeless vets.
But they received nothing from the billionaire businessman until last week when the bumper sticker came in the mail with a handwritten note reading, “Unfortunately we are unable to make donations from the campaign.”
The note continued, “Mr. Trump is very passionate about giving veterans the best life possible!” and was signed “Team Trump.”
According to Robertson, since that time they have received requests from the Trump campaign to support the candidate which the veteran finds puzzling.
“We never wrote to his campaign,” Robertson explained. “Now they want us to get out there and campaign and be on his team? Without the veterans, he wouldn’t be where he is today.”
Trump says he plans to donate more money raised during his campaign to 22 veterans groups, yet Veterans-in-Command isn’t among them. Trump has donated just $5 Million in total since 2010 to various causes, but the veterans groups he claims to support have received a measly $75,000 of that thus far, reports NBC.
What a generous man.
