Trump’s Budget: Feeding One Kid, Starving the Family

Jill Richardson

Imagine a parent who starves his children and fails to do any number of basic parental duties, but then buys one of his kids a healthy meal.

Well, that’s good. Great, really. But it’s not enough. An act of goodness directed at one child cannot feed an entire starving family.

That’s essentially what Trump has done by donating his first paycheck, $78,333, to the National Park Service.

The $78,333 "donation" gives Trump a $78.333 income tax deduction that we will never find out about because we will never see any of his tax returns.

Most of our local Trump supporters would like to see the historic sites turned into condos, the battlefields turned into golf resorts and the parks logged, fracked and mined.
