Trump’s ‘Hatred’ of Sharks Sees Spike in Donations to Conservation Charities

Donald Trump has previously tweeted about his distaste for sharks as recently as 2013.

More than a decade ago, President Donald Trump allegedly sat around with his mistress watching television while talking about how much he hates sharks and would not mind if they all died.

Now, those comments are coming back to bite him — in the sense that they are helping out the sharks of the world.

Donations have reportedly surged to shark conservation charities since Mr Trump’s hate of sharks were unearthed in a previously unpublished interview conducted between the magazine In Touch and adult film actress Stormy Daniels — who claims she had an affair with Mr Trump in 2006, just a year after he married his current wife.

The charities, for their part, are pretty jazzed.

“It can certainly be a challenge to raise money for a species that most people fear,” Cynthia Wilgren, the chief executive officer of the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, told MarketWatch of their surging donations. “We have been receiving donations in Trump’s name since the story was published.”

Daniels says that she met with Mr Trump several times during her affair with him, and that he mentioned never giving money to shark charities while watching shark programming on television at one point.

“I hope all sharks die,” Daniels told In Touch in the interview, which was conducted before Mr Trump became president.

Others have taken a different approach to this new way to join the resistance, like an individual who adopted a 13-foot female white shark named Lola.

Lola, of course, is too big to be kept in the anonymous individual’s pool or backyard pond, Newsweek reports, and is instead being tracked by the Shark Research Institute. That group, which has also seen a spike in their donations, says adopting a shark simply means paying $50 a year — or $150 for a lifetime adoption — and being notified whenever that shark is spotted.



  1. It’s funny how no one cared about sharks, until President Trump is mentioned. Our country is full of such petty people, who are only doing this to spite the President, instead of doing it for the actual conservation of sharks.

    So lets assume that the President hates world peace, and loves that we constantly separate ourselves from each other through race, gender, political parties, and country borders.

    Maybe then people will pull their heads out of their butts and stop opposing the President for the sake of opposing him. Remember, Obama committed over 75 illegal acts as president. The whole system is corrupt and until we overthrow it, it will continue to be a problem despite who is in the White House.
