Donald Trump is not a self-made billionaire.
But speaking before ordinary Americans on Monday, the real estate mogul attempted to recast his widely known cushy beginnings by telling the story of a meager $1 million loan provided by his old man, Fred Trump.
“It has not been easy for me,” he insisted.
On Wednesday, Stephen Colbert took Trump’s humble roots to task by daring him to pay it forward to the kids at Harlem’s Children Zone, a charity organization that helps disadvantaged youth in New York.
“Who knows, the kids you help might one day be so rich that they can blow their cash on a presidential campaign,” the Late Show host said.
