News & Opinion: Trump gives away money.
Jack just forwarded me this link. An ad ran in Metro New York the other day proclaiming: "Donald Trump Is Giving Away Money." And give away money he certainly did. Trump co-wrote a new book, Think Big and Kick Ass in Business and Life, with Bill Zanker from the Learning Annex. Yesterday they stood outside the Barnes & Noble on 5th Ave. giving out $100 bill to the first 100 folks in line, $50 to the next 200 and $10 to the next 1,000. While not all $30,000 was given away, many folks walked happily away with extra cash in their pocket. Trump and Zanker's goal was '"to support the idea of the book...[by] giving people a start."' Sorry to disappoint, I don't think $100 bills will be passed out with Jack and Todd's book due out in 2009.
