Some of Donald Trump’s earliest supporters in his campaign for the White House cited the many times he’d reached out and solved a problem (like that long-stalled ice rink project in New York City) or come to the assistance of someone in need, asking nothing in return.
One such incident that happened years ago is back in the news due to Trump’s run for the White House.
As the Jewish Telegraph Agency reported at the time:
The private Boeing 727 of real estate tycoon Donald Trump arrived from Los Angeles at LaGuardia Airport Tuesday morning, carrying aboard an Orthodox Jewish child with a rare and still undiagnosed breathing illness.
The child, Andrew Ten, age 3, arrived with his parents — accompanied by three nurses who attend to him around the clock — to try to seek medical help in the New York area.
Trump made his plane available for the special trip to New York after the boy’s parents, Judy and Harold Ten, called Trump and told him of their plight.
Commercial airlines refused to fly the child because he could not travel without an elaborate life-support system, which includes a portable oxygen tank, a suction machine, a breathing bag and an adrenaline syringe.
Despite such gestures, there are still those who insist that Donald Trump is anti-Semitic, to cite just one of the many names he’s been called.
But when was the last time a Democrat did something like this? You’d think that with its millions of dollars, the Clinton Foundation could have come to the rescue. Or not.
