i just read this article on a cell phone that donald trump had made for him. It cost a estimated 1 million dollars. It was made of 18k gold and boasting no fewer than 120 carats of diamonds.

wow we have so many starving kids in this nation but instead of helping solve this problem lets buy a cellphone for a million dollars. I mean i know he prolly gives alot of money to the charities but wow for a cellphone? seems extreme i hope he gets good reception for that type of money.

I agree with you there Reese, its a waste of money, and that One million dollars could help save thousands of lives, and help stop major deseases spreading even more out of control.

I don't know, this is a free world and it is pointed out that the guy probably gives a heck of a lot to charity. There is only so much one can do and if he thinks that the million dollar cell phone is a good purchase then so be it. Perhaps the company that made it employs lots of people or gives lots of money to charity? Like they say, a fool and his money are soon parted... maybe the cell phone company is laughing all the way to the bank?

Give me a break - why didn't YOU buy a lesser car or smaller house so you could give more money to those in need? The percentage of this purchase for Donald Trump is akin to a regular person buying something only just slightly exhorbitant and shouldn't reflect poorly on the guy.
