During a town hall meeting in New Hampshire on Monday, GOP frontrunner Donald Trump dropped a bombshell about his past that has liberals everywhere outraged.
According to CNN, Trump stirred up controversy when he depicted a $1 million loan he received from his father as “small.”
“My whole life really has been a ‘no’ and I fought through it,” Trump said at the NBC-sponsored town hall event. “It has not been easy for me, it has not been easy for me. And you know I started off in Brooklyn, my father gave me a small loan of a million dollars.”
Trump was answering a question from a Republican who asked him, “with the exception of your family, have you ever been told no?”
Haha it shows how out of touch Donald trump is that he thinks a million dollar loan is small

When Trump was pressed about his answer, he acknowledged that a million dollars may seem like a lot to some, but, “a million dollars isn’t very much compared to what I’ve built.”
Liberals claim that this is evidence that Trump is “out of touch,” but that’s not what this means at all. Trump has amassed a multi-billion dollar net worth, and though he was born into a wealthy family, much of his success has come from his own hard work. For a multi-billionaire like Trump, $1 million really is a “small loan.”
In the end, Trump would be an amazing president because he would run this country like a business. He would bring his unprecedented success in the business world to the White House, and that’s EXACTLY what we need!
