Much has changed since 2010 and people can very well grow and gain different perspective. In 6 years Donald Trump has changed his tune to become a champion of the people and media outlets can’t stand it.
Outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) had just won re-election against Republican competitor Sharron Angle in 2010 when he received a letter from now President-elect Donald Trump, who had donated $4,800 to the Nevada lawmaker’s campaign.
“Congratulations,” the short memo began. “You are amazing!”

Reid’s office shared the letter with BuzzFeed News following a tweet from Trump calling incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) “far smarter” than Reid.
I have always had a good relationship with Chuck Schumer. He is far smarter than Harry R and has the ability to get things done. Good news!

From 1996 to 2010, Trump and his family donated thousands of dollars to Schumer. The billionaire businessman has defended his contributions by saying donating to a Republican in New York City would be “stupid” because they get only “1 percent of the vote.”
Thankfully, it no longer appears that Trump has any dealings with the dirty Dems and has only the best interest of the American people at heart.
