Trump donates $100,000 to alcoholism research from presidential salary
Associated Press Published 2:43 p.m. ET Jan. 26, 2019

President Donald Trump has donated his salary from the third-quarter of 2018 to the federal agency that researches alcoholism and alcohol-related problems.

The White House says Trump donated $100,000 to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.

Alcoholism is a personal issue for the president. His older brother, Fred Jr., died in 1981 after struggling with alcoholism, and the president has said he learned from his brother's experience.

Trump pledged as a candidate in 2016 to not accept the $400,000 annual presidential salary he would be due if elected.

By law, he must be paid so Trump has donated the quarterly payments to various federal departments and agencies. The departments of Education, Health and Human Services, Transportation and Veterans Affairs, among others, have accepted Trump's donations.

Anyone who says Trump is not donating his 400K salary per year is a darn liar.

#TrumpIsAWhiteSupremacist is trending on Twitter right now. You just can't fix this level of stupid and viciousness from the left. I have never seen this level of hatred for any President in my lifetime... and this includes those on the right that opposed Obama when he was President. These people are completely unhinged.

While I'd agree that the left is off into emotional bizzarro land with it's blanket and Deep accusations.
even so, Trump's no saint.

I posted this while he was still a candidate.

Trump Quotes
•“I have black guys counting my money.… I hate it. The only guys I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes all day.”
(USA Today, May 20, 1991)

•“Who the **** knows? I mean, really, who knows how much the Japs will pay for Manhattan property these days?”
(TIME, January 1989)

•“Jeb Bush has to like the Mexican Illegals because of his wife.”
(Retweeted and then deleted on Twitter, July 4, 2015)

•Points his finger into a crowd. 'look, look, at my Black right there.'
(I don't recall Obama saying 'look look at my white people here'... did i miss that? Ron Paul say anything like that?)

•...He can't be fair a judge he's Hispanic...

[/B]Trumps supporters early in the camping have beaten up, knocked down, dragged out, ripped up peoples signs and spat in the faces those they didn't like. whether they are loud protesters or sitting quietly. And Trump encouraged it to the point of saying he'd pay for legal fees and said those beaten at his rallies "deserved it". Kicking hispanic Reporters out of his press meetings and assuming they are citizens. General stereotyping of minorities and stupid race based commentary.

•Trump systematically kicking Blacks, women and other minorities out his biz because their presence somehow offends some customer and allowing that "good" customer to treat blacks badly. Shuffling blacks, women and other minority staff into to back rooms when Trumps "friends" were on the Casino or hotel floor?

..At the time, New Jersey state regulators had launched an investigation into allegations by nine employees of one of Trump’s Atlantic City casinos, the Trump Plaza, that the hotel had repeatedly removed African-Americans and women from craps tables after LiButti, one of the highest-rolling gamblers in the city’s history, loudly complained about their presence when he was playing. The probe resulted in a $200,000 fine against the Trump Plaza by the New Jersey Casino Control Commission for violating state anti-discrimination laws. Investigators found that LiButti had, on multiple occasions, berated blacks and women using what one state official described as the “vilest” language — including racist slurs and references to women in obscene terms — and that the TrumpPlaza, in order not to lose his substantial business, sought to accommodate him by keeping the employees away from his betting tables, according to commission documents recently obtained by Yahoo News under the New Jersey Open Public Records Act.

•There was a well publicized rape case in NewYork, Trump took a full page against the 5 black teens ACCUSED of the crime. they were later found NOT guilty.
"... he took out full-page newspaper ads calling for the death penalty for the African-American teenage suspects -- who were all later exonerated."
I've read elsewhere that after the 5 were found innocent Trump still wanted them in jail for some reason. Can we think any reasons he MIGHT have?

•At his Apartments
"...Trump Management settled the case, promising not to discriminate against blacks, Puerto Ricans and other minorities. As part of the agreement, Trump was required to send its list of vacancies in its 15,000 apartments to a civil-rights group, giving them first priority in providing applicants for certain apartments, according to a contemperaneous New York Times account. Trump, who emphasized that the agreement was not an admission of guilt, later crowed that he was satisfied because it did not require them to “accept persons on welfare as tenants unless as qualified as any other tenant.”

But the company didn’t sufficiently fulfill its promise, because three years later, the Justice Department charged Trump Management with continuing to discriminate against blacks through such tactics as telling them that apartments were not available. As part of its demands, the government asked that victims of discrimination be compensated and that Trump Management continue to report to the Justice Department on its compliance...

While he may not be a NAZI or a full blown White Supremacist
I'm not sure how an honest person can say that there are NO racist words and actions in his life.

Unless of course you want to say that EVERY white American thinks and acts that way and nothing above is really "racist".
And don't betray an general mindset that can be realistically called racist... or if you prefer prejudiced.

But everything he said has been said by MILLIONS...

The problem is that the bar has been raised so high that NO ONE is free from being called a racist...I remember a joke where two white guys and a black guy go to hell and the devil touches the white guys and they melt, but when he touches the black guy, he doesn't...Why not?...Because milk chocolate melts in your mouth; not in your hands...I must've been 10 years old the last time I told that joke...

But what do my words in 1980 make me in 2019 according to the Left?...A full blown white supremacist, racist, bigot...

...unless you're a Liberal, of course...

Media Wrongly Claim Trump Ad Pushed to Execute 'Innocent Children'

Quote:
Since Donald Trump began his run for President in June 2015, parts of the dominant liberal media have repeatedly parroted the incorrect claim that, in 1989, Trump ran a newspaper ad in which he urged the execution of a group of young black and Hispanic teens who ended up eventually being proven "innocent" in spite of confessing to the infamous rape and beating of a Central Park jogger that year.

In fact, the ad in question did not specify that the Central Park Five should be executed as it came at a time when the death penalty was illegal in New York. There had been a push for the state legislature to enact a new law to reinstate capital punishment which would require overriding the veto of then-Democratic Governor Mario Cuomo -- who had vetoed a death penalty bill a month before the attack.

The defendants could not have been sentenced to capital punishment since it was not an option at the time of the crime, and the U.S. Constitution bans ex post facto laws.

Additionally, when Trump was asked about the ad in May 1989 on Larry King Live, CNN claims he stated that he only supported the death penalty for adults -- which would have excluded the Central Park Five because they were all between the ages of 14 and 16.

n the repeated smearing of Trump as someone who advocated executing a group of children whose convictions were eventually vacated after they had served their sentences, the media have also simplistically portrayed the defendants as having been "exonerated" or proven completely "innocent" by DNA testing without informing viewers that even their defense attorneys admitted that they were "beating up other people" on the night of the Central Park attack.

...Also of note, as some have pushed the angle that, because the Central Park jogger was a white woman while the defendants were minorities, Trump was motivated by racism -- but what has been overlooked is that he also came to the defense of a black woman in Brooklyn who was raped and thrown from a four-story building a couple of weeks after the Central Park attack, and right after the death penalty ads ran in May of that year.

One columnist credited Trump with drawing attention to the Brooklyn victim's ordeal as he visited her in the hospital, spoke publicly of her case, and offered to pay her medical bills. According to Nexis, in the Herald Sun article, "Our Odd Reactions to Rape," dated January 31, 1990, author P. Wilson recalled: "Most of the publicity about the case arose from the fact that Donald Trump, a wealthy developer, agreed to pay her medical costs."

From the AD he mentions "angry young men".
During a press session earlier today, President Trump was asked once again about his opinion on their case, and his placement of the ad, in light of the evidence that emerged in the following years. Trump handled it about as well as you might expect:
"Years after DNA evidence exonerated them, @realDonaldTrump suggests the Central Park 5 are guilty & refuses to apologize for taking out a full-page ad saying they should be executed.

"You have people on *both sides* of that. They admitted their guilt.""
His remarks: “Why do you bring that question up now? It’s an interesting time to bring it up. You have people on both sides of that. They admitted their guilt. If you look at Linda Fairstein, and you look at some of the prosecutors, they think that the city should never have settled that case.”

In 2014, the five men convicted (who served 6-14 years in prison) settled with the city of New York for $41 million. Several of them now work with The Innocence Project, which seeks to overturn other unjust U.S. convictions.
But hey, millions of people want some folks to remain in prison or be executed after others confess to the crime and other evidence has cleared them right?

I had heard, somewhere, that it is $160K.

But I just now looked it up; and you are quite correct.

Fox Business has this to say about the matter:

"Today, President Trump makes the same amount [that George W. Bush made]: $400,000. That doesn’t include a $50,000 'expense allowance,' $100,000 for travel expenses or other entertainment allowances, according to Title 3 of the U.S. Code."

Yes the left has conjured up 10's of millions ( maybe more ) new white supremacists in this country.

People that were formerly good people that thought no different about people of color, are now Racist determined to make America a "White Only" nation.

I don't know what to tell my black and Hispanic friends. Do I need to convert to a democrat?

I guess if we all change to Democrat, and change nothing else about ourselves, we will suddenly become good people again.
