Donald Trump’s former butler on Thursday said that the GOP presidential front-runner has a kinder heart than people realize.
“First of all, he’s an incredibly generous person,” Tony Senecal told host Carol Costello on CNN. "He’s generous to his employees [and] he’s generous to strangers.
“Most of the time he’s just a nice man. I mean, I lasted with him for 20 years. He had to be pretty good.”
Senecal said that both the media and Trump’s rivals for the Republican presidential nomination have mischaracterized the billionaire.
“He’s not the great, gruff person that people play him out to be. Sure, you attack him, he’s going to fight back.”

Name 1 good thing hillary has done for someone personally, besides getting him off a rape charge of a 13 yo and not bragged about it.
Oh wait, that was her job.
Donald Trump, notorious for his self-proclaimed business acumen, does not skimp on his handouts to the help. In fact, he sometimes passes out $100 bills.
The Republican presidential frontrunner and real estate mogul has been known to give Franklins to the "appreciative" groundskeepers on his property in Palm Beach, reports the New York Times.
"You’re a Hispanic and you’re in here trimming the trees and everything, and a guy walks up and hands you a hundred dollars,” Trump's long-time butler Anthony Senecal told the Times. “And they love him, not for that, they just love him.”
A Georgia widow said today that her family's Christmas will celebrate "the goodness in men's hearts"--the kindness of strangers who, touched by her husband's suicide to prevent the sale of his farm, contributed $187,000 to retire the mortgage.
"Our land is going to be ours again," said 66-year-old Annabel Hill at a ceremony to burn the mortgage for the 705-acre Hill farm in Waynesboro, Ga.
Joining Mrs. Hill were developer Donald Trump and Texas farmer and landowner Tom McKamy, who donated the last $78,000 to pay off the debt, as well as Atlanta businessman Frank Argenbright Jr., who led fund-raising efforts.
The benefactors agreed that they were pleased to help Mrs. Hill, but said their efforts on her behalf were symbolic of their concern for the American farmer.
"We give a lot of money to foreign countries that don't give a damn about us, but we don't help the American farmers," Trump said.
Mrs. Hill's husband, Lenard, killed himself with a .22-caliber rifle on Feb. 4, just 20 minutes before the farm was to be auctioned to help pay a $300,000 debt. Two years of drought had been ruinous, Mrs. Hill said, and her husband thought the insurance money from his death was the only way to wipe out the debt.
It was not enough, and the farm was imperiled once again. Trump heard about the widow's plight in September and worked with Argenbright to raise the remaining $187,000. Donations of all sizes materialized--New York disc jockey Don Imus raised $15,000--but the debt remained at $78,000.
Trump offered to pay half that sum, and then McKamy--a sixth-generation farmer in North Dallas--offered to pay the rest. He also explained to Mrs. Hill how she could use new farming techniques to ensure that she gets the most from her acreage.

I think you are missing the point of the OP. The media has created the character that you think is Trump. The media feeds the hatred. You have been brainwashed.

I really don't understand this trump idolation. The man works directly for satan and all you people love him. and The only media bias I see is in favor of trump so just like the rest of the propaganda put out by the trumpies it is nonsense. Can't you people just use the brain tat God Almighty gave you and stop being brain washed by this trump crap. It is really disheartening. I mean how can you support this guy and still have a heart. I guess people are just easily misled by whoever has a bug in their ear as I know a lot of the trumpies out there are decent human beings. You just need to wake the heck up
