The Donald Answers Rob Lowe’s Call to Donate $5,000 to Haiti
When Rob Lowe appeared on “Extra “a couple of weeks ago to help raise money for homeless families in Haiti, the actor called on Donald Trump to buy his handprint artwork, saying, “I challenge Donald… I don’t need you as President, but I need you to buy my handprint to help 50,000 Haitian families.”
Lowe’s call has not gone unanswered. The billionaire placed a $5,000 bid on Rob’s Valspar Hands for Habitat handprint! When asked about his big purchase, Trump said, “I think Rob is terrific. I’ve watched him on television and he’s always had nice things to say about me. More importantly, I like his charity and the work he does.”
All proceeds from Trump’s bid, and proceeds from the auction of more than 30 other celebrity handprints go to Habitat’s rebuilding efforts in Haiti.

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul brushed away suggestions that President Trump holds an anti-Haitian racial animus because he once supported Paul’s trip to the Caribbean to surgically treat poor Haitians. On NBC’s “Meet The Press “Sunday, Paul said that Trump had donated money to Paul before he became President. Paul performed around 200 operations on Haitians during his trip. The remarks were made days after Trump said that Haiti and some African countries are “shithole nations.”
This remark has led to an attack on Democratic legislators who call Trump a racist. Paul said that Congress wouldn’t help with a deal on immigration. “There are a lot of questions that this ultimately intersects with policy, and the only thing I regret from all of this, other than I think some people in the media have gone completely bonkers with, you know, just ad hominem on the president, I want to see an immigration compromise and you can’t have an immigration compromise if everybody is out there calling the president a racist,” he said.
