While the liberal media spent last week dumping one accusation after the next on Republican nominee Donald Trump, the man quietly did something that most of the media never even picked up on.
Thursday, Trump sent truck loads of food, cleaning supplies, toys and diapers to the hurricane victims in North Carolina, delivered by his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, and the “Trump Women’s Tour.” (FULL DISCLOSURE: Dennis Michael Lynch gave “Diamond and Silk” their nicknames used today.)
The $29,000 worth of supplies Trump donated were distributed in Fayetteville, Lumberton and Greenville, according to the FayObserver.
Ron Pringle, director of the Second Harvest Food Bank, said the donations were appreciated. He said the bank has distributed more than half a million pounds of food since Hurricane Matthew. Normally, he said, the bank donates between 125,000 and 150,000 pounds of food a week.
“Literally, we’ve been trying to keep our heads above water,” Pringle said. “We have pretty much depleted our stock trying to meet the emergency need.”
Volunteer Cecil Brigman was busy packing supplies Thursday. He said the work was non-stop. “Very busy. A lot of stuff coming in,” he said. “Very generous people bringing stuff in.”
The Trump entourage arrived about 3:30 p.m. – a truck followed by a Trump-Pence campaign bus. Lara Trump, wearing a pink “Women for Trump” T-shirt, greeted volunteers and visitors, including Fayetteville Mayor Nat Robertson.
After posing for pictures, Trump helped other campaign workers unload the contents of the truck onto pallets.
Trump, who has campaigned in the area twice in recent months, said news of the devastation caused by Hurricane Matthew affected her personally because she is from Wilmington.
“Obviously, we all saw the destruction the hurricane has caused,” she said. “My father-in-law said, you take a break and go down and help them out. We really want to bring whatever relief we can.”
