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.
