In politics, many people talk but few actually do.
Take the DTMNBN crisis. Several members of congress are foregoing their pay temporarily with the money going to DTMNBN (Disease That Must Not Be Named) relief. All are Republicans.
Now, we learn that President Trump’s campaign has been giving restaurants large orders for food to be delivered to hospital doctors and nurses. Joe Biden has not stepped up to do the same.
This helps two groups of people. The restaurants that are hurting and it provides food for our doctors and nurses. This is what a real president does. He leads.
The meals were provided anonymously but evidently one of the restaurants named the Trump campaign as the donor.
A good measure of character is what a person does when no one is looking.
Trump is setting an example by leading from in front as opposed to a former president who led from behind.
The Trump campaign has been anonymously donating meals to hospitals in the areas hardest hit by the coronavirus outbreak, including New York, New Jersey, Michigan and Washington state, according to a report Thursday.
Fox News political reporter Brooke Singman reported that President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign has been placing the orders since last Thursday.
“They’re doing it as a donor who cares,” a source was quoted as saying. “So nothing politically is tied to it. … We’re just trying to, you know, show a thank you.”
“They’re trying to send things that are like, local restaurants that may need support [and] cool restaurant icons of the area that may need the business,” a source said.
Singman tweeted that the Trump campaign “has been quietly calling local restaurants and ordering large amounts of food to be delivered to hospitals in an effort to feed doctors, nurses & first responders and support local restaurants.”
