Trump used money donated for charity to buy himself a Tim Tebow-signed football helmet

Four years ago, at a charity fundraiser in Palm Beach, Donald Trump got into a bidding war at the evening's live auction. The items up for sale: A Denver Broncos helmet, autographed by then-star quarterback Tim Tebow, and a Tebow jersey.

Trump won, eventually, with a bid of $12,000. Afterward, he posed with the helmet. His purchase made gossip-column news: a flourish of generosity, by a mogul with money to burn. "The Donald giveth, and The Donald payeth," wrote the Palm Beach Daily News. "Blessed be the name of The Donald."

But Trump didn't actually pay with his own money.

Instead, the Susan G. Komen organization -- the breast-cancer nonprofit that hosted the party -- got a $12,000 payment from another nonprofit , the Donald J. Trump Foundation.

War veteran saves dozens during Orlando nightclub shooting

Imran Yousuf, a bouncer at the Pulse nightclub, never saw the gunman in the early Sunday morning hours. Right after last call, he was making his rounds, and barely missed coming face-to-face with Mateen.

Yousuf, a 24-year-old Hindu, served as a U.S. Marine in Afghanistan. On Saturday night, the combat zone followed him to Orlando.

He ended up saving dozens of lives.

"The initial one was three or four (shots). That was a shock. Three of four shots go off and you could tell it was a high caliber," he said. "Everyone froze. I'm here in the back and I saw people start pouring into the back hallway, and they just sardine pack everyone."

Yousuf knew just beyond that pack of panicked people -- was a door -- and safety. But someone had to unlatch it.

"I know nothing about David Duke. I know nothing about white supremacists." Donald Trump

[youtube][/youtube]

Tapper, Feb. 28: I want to ask you about the Anti-Defamation League, which this week called on you to publicly condemn unequivocally the racism of former KKK grand wizard David Duke, who recently said that voting against you at this point would be treason to your heritage. Will you unequivocally condemn David Duke and say that you donít want his vote or that of other white supremacists in this election?

Trump: Well, just so you understand, I donít know anything about David Duke. OK? I donít know anything about what youíre even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists. So, I donít know.

Tapper: OK. I mean, Iím just talking about David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan here, butÖ

Trump: I donít know any ó honestly, I donít know David Duke. I donít believe I have ever met him. Iím pretty sure I didnít meet him. And I just donít know anything about him.

Ramadan Kareem! 30 Wishes, Greetings And Messages To Celebrate Muslim Holy Month

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and in 2016, it begins in the evening of June 5 and ends in the evening of July 5. This is the month in which the Quran was revealed, when Archangel Gabriel (Jibreel in Arab) appeared to the Prophet Muhammad and began revealing the verses of the Quran and continued to do so for 23 years. During this period of time, fasting is very important, and constitutes one of the five pillars of Islam (which include declaring there is no god except God, praying five times a day, giving to the poor and needy, and pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in a lifetime).

Fasting in Ramadan is not only abstaining from food but also from evil actions, thoughts and words. Ramadan is also a time for spiritual reflection and devoting themselves to worship and pray to Allah. Here are 30 well wishes, greetings and messages to share with your dear ones who are observing this month.
