President Donald Trump donated to Kamala Harris, the presumptive Democratic vice-presidential nominee, twice while she was a candidate for California attorney general, according to public records reviewed by NBC News.
The records show that Trump donated a total of $6,000 to Harris: $5,000 in 2011 and $1,000 in 2013. He made both donations while he was a private citizen.
Of course, Trump has an excuse for this.
The Washington Examiner reported last year that according to an affidavit signed by Trump, he and his daughter Ivanka made the $5,000 donation at the request of then-New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
“Mr. Schneiderman’s former transition committee leader asked my daughter Ivanka if she would arrange for me to make a contribution to a fundraising event sponsored by Mr. Schneiderman for newly elected California Attorney General Kamala Harris,” Trump wrote in the affidavit. “In response, I made a $5,000 contribution to Ms. Harris’ campaign — the highest level of sponsorship listed in the invitation — and Ivanka attended the event together with some of Trump Org.’s other top executives.”
Yes back in those days Trump gave liberally to both Republican and Democratic candidates, he even donated to Hillary’s Senate campaign.
However, if Trump finds Harris too liberal to be Biden’s VP choice why did he not find her too liberal to support as California’s Attorney General?
And no, donating to her campaign does not prove he is not a racist.
