Donald Trump continues to strive for the highest office in the land, but his charitable claims continue to remain, on the whole, hidden from the public, and what is revealed lacks substance.
"Since the first day of his presidential campaign, Donald Trump has said that he gave more than $102 million to charity in the past five years.
"To back up that claim, Trump’s campaign compiled a list of his contributions— 4,844 of them, filling 93 pages.
"But, in that massive list, one thing was missing.
"Not a single one of those donations was actually a personal gift of Trump’s own money.
"Instead, according to a Washington Post analysis, many of the gifts that Trump cited to prove his generosity were free rounds of golf, given away by his courses for charity auctions and raffles."--David A. Fahrenthold and Rosalind S. Helderman, The Washington Post
