Tax forms examined by The Daily Beast show that in 2009, the Donald J. Trump Foundation gave a whopping $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation (then called the William J. Clinton Foundation). The following year, Trump’s Foundation, a registered 501c group, gave another $10,000 to the Clinton Foundation. Topping this off was a hefty gift of $1,000,000 to World Wrestling Entertainment, a company for which Trump has made appearances in the past.

Over a five-year span, from 2009 to 2013, the foundation gave just $57,000 to veterans’ groups, according to an estimateForbes made last December. A significant portion of that comes from a single $25,000 donation in 2011, to the Fisher House, which helps provide homes to veterans and their families.

Gee $100,000.00 isn't really much money but with people like the Clinton's it buys a lot.

And I know you're about to post just how much the Clintons gave to the veterans.

Yep. Trump was a Democrat until a few months ago.

Pro-choice. Pro big government. Pro-stimulus. Pro-immigration. Pro-socialized medicine. And very, very pro Clinton.

But he saw the GOP was weaker at the top than the Democrats. Hillary is a friend and a very formidable opponent, whereas the GOP is moribund. It wasn't difficult to figure out where he would make the most impact and have the best chance.

"So what if I have supported liberal causes all my life? All I have to do is put an R after my name, and I can do no wrong with these rubes!"

And if you did a more thorough research as to how much charity many very high ranking politicians or presidents have given to charities you would most likely be shocked. I remember Reagan gave paltry amounts, but he was not alone. Not for one second do I think democrats are any better. Joe Biden and John Kerry, notorious, also Al Gore and many others.

Biden gave average of $369 to charity a year

So I would be cautious who I singled out as cheap or hypocritical. Some of Trump’s donations were clearly business related.

So what? He freely admits it and that he bought their presence. That's what makes him so much more of a breath of fresh air. Here's a guy who admits that he bought politicians because that's exactly what you do in a position like his. Just because he bought them, along with many other people from foreign countries, doesn't mean he can be bought. Buying whores doesn't mean you'll become one.

There is no buying in either direction when it comes to Sanders.

Well, then post how much Bernie has donated to veterans. Let's be fair and balanced here.

I don't know. But his legislation on behalf of veterans speaks for itself. Trump only now pretends to care about veterans.

Look it up and you will find that Trump has at least two or three different veterans groups to which he has donated regularly. Do some actual research and you won't appear so totally ignorant.

Yeah and it's been paltry. That's what matters. There's no denying that.

Yet again, you refuse to post what either Bernie or Hillary have donated. Kinda one-sided aren't you?

You might be right, but legalizing even more theft from the citizens of our country is just not something I am willing to lend my support to.

I have stated before it would not surprise me if Trump is a Clinton plant.

He didn't seem much interested in vets when he was Citizen Trump

No. You can look it up if you want. I don't care what Hillary has done. Bernie has always supported veterans. Oh and let's not forget that Trump is a billionaire.

It's your OP -- not mine. I simply thought you would be a little more fair and aboveboard than you are. My bad.
