Do You Know Any Positive Anecdotes about Donald Trump?
[Answer Criticized by Quora Moderation for Alleged Incorrect Format]
A story has been going around the Jewish Orthodox Community in the USA for DECADES. It has several variations but all are basically along the same lines. it says that a Colel student [i.e. full-time married Rabbinical scholar] was driving to his place of learning when he noticed someone in distress at the side of road. He stopped and helped the person fix his vehicle. This took quite a while and some effort. The person offered to pay the student but he refused. He did however say that since he had used up so much of his time he was running late and would not be able, as he had planned, to send flowers to his wife before the Shabat. He asked if the driver by way of payment would send the flowers in his stead and left his address.
The evening when he returned home he asked his wife if anything had been delivered to the house. She said it had not.
A day or so later he received a bouquet of roses with an attached note.
It went something like this.
- # Sorry for the delay. Here are the roses you asked for.
- I checked up on you. I know you are a Colel student and not wealthy.
- It may interest you to know that the entire mortgage on your house has been paid for.
- Donald Trump. #
Even if the story is not correct, and I believe that basically it is, it does show that for a good time now Donald Trump has had a good name in certain quarters.
