Donald Trump has garnered a noble reputation of looking out for marines and veterans who served the military. Earlier this year Davenport, Iowa, Trump donated a check for $100,000 to an organization that trains dogs for veterans suffering with PTSD and mobility issues. Trump gave the check to the Puppy Jake Foundation during a campaign rally with Jerry Falwell Jr., President of Liberty University.
“With $100,000, we will be able to raise five training dogs,” a representative said. Training dogs can be extremely costly to properly train, so Trump’s donation definitely aided the organization immensely. This was during the time Trump skipped the Fox News GOP debate to instead hold a rally to raise funds for veterans. “That’s more important, frankly, than doing a debate,” Trump had said in an interview.
Trump was accompanied by three cute dogs from the Puppy Jake Foundation on stage when he made the donation.
