Did Trump donate $20M to St. Jude’s? (Probably not)

The Washington Post has a story questioning the claim, made by a Donald Trump supporter at a rally last October, that the billionaire mogul gave $20 million to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital in Memphis.

The report, published also in today’s Commercial Appeal, notes that the declaration brought loud cheers from the rally crowd and a “Thank you” from Trump, who subsequently – but indirectly – appeared to imply the claim was true.

The gist of the Post’s look into the matter: There’s no evidence Trump ever gave anything close to that amount to the charity. But a foundation headed by his son, Eric Trump, apparently has committed to raising that amount for the hospital.
