    Who cares about that! What about Melania's shoes? Please stick to the important issues facing the country.

    Trump is worth $3.5 billion. $1 mill is 0.029% of his net worth.

    The average 40 year old American is worth $80,000....

    His donation is equivalent to $23.20 to the average American.

    ....not impressed.

    Oh no no no no no... :fp

    We are not supposed to send any of our own money or leave our homes to go out and help our fellow man because it is the job of the Federal Government to bail out Houston.

    Terrible argument. You still have to write the check, regardless of how much you have.

    This should be followed up on as he has pledged and not delivered in the past, but if he follows through, good on him for doing so.

    I've sent more than 0.029% of my net worth. But frankly, what I do with my finances are none of your business.

    As what he does is none of yours... But ya didn't mind making a comment, now did ya? :tu When you send a million, maybe then you can critique someone who is... Because the $30 you sent, doesn't do nearly as much as the million he has proposed sending (that is, if he actually sends it).

    It shouldn't be my business, but he made it my business when he told the press that he did it.

    Good for the people that money will benefit, but I don't see this as much more than a publicity stunt. $23.... out of his pocket, still not impressed.
