Airline Wouldn't Allow Sick Boy On Plane
Donald Trump has been under the public light nearly all his life. He seems to cherish it, but it doesn't always shine on him in a complimentary way. He presents himself as a rugged, straight to the point New Yorker who refuses to back down when he is under attack. This is true, but he has done many acts of kindness in his lifetime.
Everyone knows that Trump is a man of action and he gets things done. When he heard that a three-year-old boy who suffered from a rare lung disease could not get the help he needed, The Donald jumped into action.
Because of liability risk, the airlines would not let the boy travel via plane. He needed to get from Los Angeles to New York fast and Trump wasted no time. The now president-elect offered the family the services of his plane and they were whisked off to New York in no time. The media vastly ignored this particular act of kindness.
Trump Helps After Tragedy
When Grammy Award-winning actress Jennifer Hudson learned that three of her family members were brutally murdered back in 2008, her life was destroyed. She withdrew from the public and she stayed secluded in Donald Trump's hotel – at no charge. She felt that she may still be in danger, so he also paid for security.
In 2013, a Buffalo, New York bus driver named Darnel Barton saw a woman in distress on his route. He stopped his bus and talked the woman out of jumping off the bridge she was perched on. Donald Trump got wind of this great deed and he sent the 37-year-old bus driver $10,000 as a reward.
Trump saw a man taking a beating by another man with a baseball bat in New York City. Several witnesses claim that Donald jumped out of his limo, ran up to the assailant and said, “Look, you've gotta stop this... Put down the bat.”
The attacker recognized Trump and responded with this, “Mr. Trump, I didn't do anything wrong.”
True New Yorker, Trump yelled, “How could you not do anything wrong when you're whacking a guy with a bat?”
The man ran away.
Trump Gets It Done
Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi was held captive in a Mexican prison for 214 days and he was brutalized. President Obama did nothing to get him freed and he would not address it publicly. The Donald, as reported by Greta Van Susteren, helped Greta get him out and gave the young man a large sum of money when he was released to help him get a new start.
Retired U.S. Army Sgt Todd Landen spoke to Trump at a Sioux City, Iowa rally. He told him that the VA would not share his medical records with his neurologist and he was experiencing military pay issues. Team Trump bombarded the VA with phone calls and in less than 24 hours, Sgt. Landen's records were forwarded and his back-pay issue was resolved in his favor.
In 1995, Trump's limo was pulled over with a flat tire. A man pulled over behind him and changed the tire. When Trump asked the man how he could repay him for his kindness, he said, “Send a bouquet of flowers to my wife.” Trump agreed.
A few weeks passed and the man accepted the fact that Donald had forgotten. Then, the bouquet arrived. Along with the flowers was a note from Trump that read, “We've paid off your mortgage.”
