Dem Rep. Slams Trump for Taking 9/11 Small Biz Funds
GIVE IT BACK
Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a Democratic congressman representing parts of New York City, has condemned Donald Trump for allegedly accepting 9/11 recovery funds intended for small businesses. Trump reportedly received $150,000 in recovery fundings by classifying one of his companies—which had 28 employees and brought in $26.8 million annually—as a small business. “The federal definition of a small business as having less than $6 million in revenue,” Nadler writes in a letter calling on Trump to donate that $150,000 to a charity benefiting the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.
