Donald Trump’s ‘death wish’ for sharks leads to a spurt in shark conservation donations | GBRI
 

Most humans would be petrified of sharks, but we are sure not all of them would want them to go extinct! Donald Trump, however, does not think like most of us.

A recent In Touch Weekly interview with adult star Stormy Daniels revealed that the US President was “obsessed” with sharks and “terrified” of them. He reportedly told her, “I donate to all these charities and I would never donate to any charity that helps sharks. I hope all the sharks die.”

Now since Trump’s shark aversion became public, donations have been spiking at the nonprofits Atlantic White Shark Conservancy and Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.

“We have been receiving donations in Trump’s name since the story was published,” said Cynthia Wilgren, chief executive officer and co-founder of Atlantic White Shark Conservancy. “It can certainly be a challenge to raise money for a species that most people fear,” she added, noting that many of the donations came from first-time donors.
