Whether you love him or you hate him, Donald Trump has captured the entire media complex’s attention with his decidedly unconventional presidential campaign.
But what hasn’t been mentioned much at all is the billionaire’s willingness to use his vast to help those in need.
Trump’s personal 727 (shows above) made a special flight from Los Angeles to New York.
According to Jews News:
The private Boeing 727 of real estate tycoon Donald Trump arrived from Los Angeles at LaGuardia Airport Tuesday morning, carrying aboard a 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.
“Mr. Trump did not hesitate when we called him up. He said ‘yes, I’ll send my plane out,'” 29-year-old Harold Ten recalled shortly after he landed here Tuesday morning.
Asked why he thought Trump made his private jet available, Ten replied, “Because he is a good man. He has three children of his own and he knows what being a parent is all about.”
Whatever you think of Trump’s bombastic style, he has a heart of gold. The fact taht he hasn’t bragged on this story to boost his image during the Republican primary shows that he understands the idea that charity should be done in private.
