Breaking News – Donald Trump lied about something. Oh wait, this isn’t breaking news, this is what the Republican presidential candidate does… all the time!
This recent lie has to do with funds he received after September 11th. Trump is often heard telling anyone that will listen that he received $150,000 for helping victims of September 11th. But documents show that Trump requested those funds because he is greedy and inconsiderate.
Though the billionaire presidential candidate has repeatedly suggested he got that money for helping others out after the attacks, documents obtained by the Daily News show that Trump’s account was just a huge lie.
Records from the Empire State Development Corp., which administered the recovery program, show that Trump’s company asked for those funds for “rent loss,” “cleanup” and “repair” — not to recuperate money lost in helping people.
That government program was designed to help local businesses get back on their feet — not reimburse people for their charitable work.
