After spending several days off the campaign trail, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump made a visit to the the National September 11 Memorial Museum Saturday afternoon, where an official from the museum said he made a $100,000 donation.

His campaign says Trump and his wife Melania were given a tour of the museum by it’s President and CEO Joe Daniels, along with “other museum officials and representatives of the NYPD and PAPD.”

“They were incredibly impressed with the museum, a monument representative of all of the wonderful people who tragically lost their lives and the families who have suffered so greatly,” the Trump campaign said in a statement.

“It is also symbolic of the strength of our country, and in particular New Yorkers, who have done such an incredible job rebuilding that devastated section of our city,” the statement said.

    But, WHY do it now? After all, he has had FIFTEEN YEARS to make a visit and donate! Is it just because he was called out about it? Or, to make him look like a ‘concerned American?’ I say Hypocrite!

    I find it amazing that when Trump donates a 100 kilo-bucks to the museum, he gets knocked for it by the anti-Trump crowd. Apparently, since it’s “Damned if you do, Damned if you don’t”, I say. “Damn Them!” – Full Steam Ahead!

    Most importantly, will Trump be a non-interventionist in the Middle East? Will Israel retaliate by starting war with Iran under false pretenses?

      NO,,, Trump will fight,,,, He’ll just make them pay for it!
      Which is what Bush should have done in the first place.
      With out Trump there will be no Wall in the south and the people Mexico won’t support will keep on a coming. Hope you like Mexican food!

      • MyronJPoltroonian

        It’s not the food that’s a problem, it’s the flouting of our sovereignty by governments on both sides of the border and it’s been going on for years now with the connivance of Mexico’s Oligarchy and the insiders from both sides of the political aisle, federal, state and local, on our side of the border.

  • Pat Enery

    Is Trump on board with ending the Fed? Let’s not forget what happened to Hitler & Germany when they kicked out the Jewish bankers. PROSPERITY! Up until the Jews financing & persuasion to involve us in WWll. Will they do a Kennedy on him if he ends the Fed?

  • Pat Enery

    One must kiss the arse of the Jewish election machine to become president in the U.S. Why do we continue to let this happen? Doesn’t their Talmud & the rabbis teach that the gentiles are animals & lower than the Jews & the best of us should all be killed. Is that why we sent our boys to die in middle eastern wars? Why don’t they ever send theirs? Are they cowards?

    • Sandy white

      I agree as would anyone who has ever bothered to read about the german economy back then. However we have bigger enemies to worry about such as BO, HC, BS AND TC to name just a few. I like the initials BO and BS – how appropriate! Haha! And they r right here in our own country. Unfortunately our votes don’t really matter which is unconscionable in this day of mass media. The electorate should be abolished as it is no longer needed.

  • Sandy white

    Wake up josebear…..if u think somebody else is Snow White u r delusional. However Trump is the closest thing we’ve got to a person who gives a shit about this country and its people! You’re just another moron who is going to help bring America to both knees. Look around we r already on one knee!!

  • josebear5

        Listen to yourself. The majority of the folks will find you disgusting. Why does talk like this make you think people are going to listen to you? Geesh…

      • josebear5

        You are a Trump supporter a low infor voter Who couldn’t find his a$$ if your life depended on it.

        • PC Bob

          I think we are on the wrong post, Jose! You won’t find many supporters for our viewpoint here.

    • dfinch

      Six million was pledged but as of today something short of three million has been received and about 2.4 million dispersed. By this time they should have received about 70% of what was pledged. Of course you’re always going to get those that won’t abide by their pledged. They get caught up in the moment.

  • Ralph Eubanks

    If he is not elected this Country as it was is GONE!

    • dennis w

      truer words were never spoken………
      TRUMP 2016……….

    • WRBuchanan

      What Pukes me is that the RNC is doing it’s damnedest to elect her.
      And this BS of supporting Cruz just to stop Trump has got to stop.
      Cruz is a loser!
      These people will lose nothing if she is elected, and they’ll just go back to doing what they’ve always done in DC making 7 figure incomes.
      We’ll lose our jobs and way of life!

      Go Trump

  • Patrick Driscoll

    It is great to finally have a real AMERICAN who wants to run this country, after this weakling in the WH has tried to damage it and the world.
    Think there are many more of us who support your efforts than the dumbed-down obuma bitches making all the noise.

    • Debra Shawver

      You are soooo right. This man needs to be in our White House yesterday……
