These 5 Acts of Kindness Reveal There is More to Donald Trump Than Just Celebrity Personality


Since Donald Trump announced he was running for president, he has seen no shortage of themedia spotlight.

But one thing that fails to receive coverage: how Trump has touched the lives of others.

Here are 5 acts of kindness that reveal there’s more to the billionaire than just his big celebrity persona.

1. The time he gave sanctuary to Grammy Award winning singer Jennifer Hudson after three of her family members were murdered:

When Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew were gunned down in Chicago, she put everything on hold for a while. She stayed at Trump Tower to grieve, where The Donald didn’t charge her a dime and also provided security for her and a few of her family members.

2. Airlines wouldn’t accommodate a boy who had serious medical issues, so Trump offered his jet to help:

Three-year-old Andrew Ten needed to go to New York to receive some special medical attention. But there was one big problem: The airlines refused to board him because Ten required several different pieces of medical equipment on the flight. Ten’s parents put in a call to Trump, who then dispatched his private jet to meet their pressing needs.

Ten’s father said of Trump:

“He is a good man. He has three children of his own and he knows what being a parent is all about.”

3. He helped save a family’s working farm that was going into foreclosure:

In 1986, Annabell Hill was in danger of losing her family farm. On top of that, her husband had just committed suicide hoping that his life insurance policy would cover the remaining balance that they owed. When Trump saw her tragic story, he decided to do something about it.

According to the New York Times:

Donald Trump, the New York real estate tycoon, helped prevent foreclosure today on a family farm whose owner had committed suicide to try to save his land.

Mrs. Hill proposed to bank officials that the land be sold privately so she could keep some of the 705 acres. Parts of the farm have been in the Hill family for three generations.

4. After Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi was released from a prison in Mexico, The Donald sent him a big check to help get him back on his feet:

Tahmooressi spent seven months in a Mexican prison. During that time, he was beaten and even chained to a bed. When he was released, Trump sent him a check for twenty five thousand dollars.

5. What Trump did for a bus driver who helped save a woman from jumping off a bridge:

Darnell Barton was driving his bus across a bridge when he spotted a woman on the other side of railing, staring down at the traffic below. Barton stopped the bus and approached the woman. After one of his passengers explained they didn’t want to “see someone die,” he managed to put his arm around her and she agreed to come to the other side of the bridge.

After hearing about what Barton did, The Donald sent him ten thousand dollars.

Trump said:

“I thought that was so beautiful to see. I think he is a great guy with an amazing heart and I said that man should be rewarded.

Clearly, Donald Trump isn’t just a good businessman, he’s a Good Samaritan, too.

    There are so many sides to Mr. Trump apparently and most likely that is what so many of us like about this man. He is sincere, kind, outspoken, means what he says and says what he means, a good father/family man, and earthy. He has vision, he listens, he hires “the BEST” intelligent and caring people, and most of all he listens to the people and hears them as well.

    Donald Trump is NOT a politician, he is a citizen who thinks out of the box (which scares the heck out of the politicians/lobbyists/elite’s), is a deep thinker, surveys the challenge and then takes it on. It has taken him years and years to make the decision to run for President and his sole reason he says (in many online videos from the past) that he simply “LOVES AMERICA”. Yes we are going down a path of uncharted territory in regards to our economy (what’s left of it), medical insurance set up by the Fed’s to initially provide insurance to “30 million people who had no insurance” and after several years now there apparently are STILL 30 to 40 million people “UNINSURED”…now go figure that out.

    Not only are there more people without medical insurance today than before Oscare Insurance arrived but it is costing ALL of the Citizens of Amerika billions and billions of dollars just for the website and massive IRS penalties for not taking the insurance. Now, many many insurance companies are dropping out as providers to “we the public” go figure huh? Now, even the citizens that had medical insurance before Oscare are forced to take the new program and it is costing upwards to 50% more than their old policy and with less coverage. Something is horribly wrong with this whole situation for sure.

    To really top it all off company’s lessened the 40 hour work week to 24 or so in order to not have to contribute to any employees’ medical premiums. The largest EMPLOYER in Amerika today is Manpower Temp service and oh by the way when you work for a Temp Service your INCOME does NOT count towards valid income with any bank or credit union for buying power (i.e. purchase a car, a home, etc.) yup that is very true for sure. Now with shortened work hours and possibly working two or three jobs because the national pay per hour has dropped back to 1980 wage rates. Then there’s the taxes that keep increasing federal withholding, social security, medicare, etc. etc. etc.

    So now, we the people are heavily burdened with more taxes, penalties on not having Oscare medical insurance, inflation in food, clothing, gas, the laundry list is sooooo very long it’s become very unbearable for people to survive 4 more years of the cabal, the left wingers, the socialism, the tunnel vision of politicians, etc.
    and the NAFTA as well as the TPP which will be the final nail in Amerika’s coffin of sending ALL of the manufacturing jobs offshore.

    Now, the jobs that are left are being “stolen” from American Citizens who are being forced to train H1B Visa holders (from other country’s) and then the American worker gets CANNED!!! So, where does this ALL end???
    Someone know???
