The Hill reports:
President Trump plans to donate $1 million to victims of the historic floods and rains that have devastated the Gulf region, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday. Trump has not finalized what group the money will go to, and the White House said it would solicit ideas from the press corps, taking a dig at those who have fervently researched and questioned past donations Trump has made or claimed to make.
“He’s actually asked that I check with the folks in this room since you are very good at research and have been doing a lot of reporting into the groups and organizations that have the best and most effective in helping and providing aid and he would love some suggestions from the folks here and I would be happy to take them,” Sanders said in the White House press briefing room.
The last time Trump pledged a donation – his salary – it took months of media pressure before any donation occurredhttps://t.co/dLB49jk8ds

Sanders said Trump will donate $1 million to #HurricaneHarveyRelief. He is on the phone with Putin for an advance on his allowance.

I'm Calling On The President to Donate All Funds Collected From the Sale of His Hats to a Hurricane Relief Fund instead of His Campaign!
