Heís ridiculous and a fake! Heís not being transparent about Medicare for all and whoís going to pay for it.
And you support Trump because of his generosity and charitable giving?

Trump donates 100% of his salary to something, not charity. But he doesn't take any of it.

So Trump can be called a "community service president" -

Pretending to care about poor people is a good way to get rich.

But I thought social Democrats, or progressives, were all about helping people. May I ask what you are personally doing to help support the less fortunate since you don't believe in charity?

I, for example, as a conservative, donate to animal rescue groups, medical research companies, the local homeless shelter, my synagogue, my alma mater, a vets organization, and of course special funds to help in natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, etc. As far as personal time, I volunteer tutor to teenagers whose 1st language isn't English.

It just strikes me odd that someone who is focused on helping low income or needy people would be proud of the fact that he doesn't give a penny to charity! My parents neighbors are the same way.....they are leftists and also brag they they haven't given a penny to charity in 20 years. I just don't get it.

Believe it or not, there are many other ways to help pepple besides virtue signalling via. donations to questionable charities.
