President Donald Trump contributed $6,000 to Kamala Harris (D-CA) when she was running to be California’s attorney general, according to records reviewed by NBC News.
Trump donated $5,000 to Harris’ campaign in 2011 and $1,000 to her campaign in 2013, according to records.
He made both donations when he was a private citizen.
In a sworn affidavit, Trump said he contributed to Harris at the request of then-New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
The donations resurfaced on Tuesday after Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, tapped Harris to be his running mate.
It also comes after Trump claimed Harris is dishonest, would raise taxes and was “disrespectful” to Brett Kavanaugh.
Conservative attorney and Lincoln Project co-founder George Conway was quick to point out that Ivanka Trump also donated thousands to Harris’ campaigns.
“Harris didn’t use Trump’s donation. Rather, in 2015 — a year after she had already been reelected and was working toward a Senate run — she gave the $6,000 to a nonprofit that works to secure civil rights for Central Americans.”https://t.co/XJ3EbAeU0R
